An Introduction to the WordPress Web Publishing Platform and WordPress.com

WordPress is a very capable online publishing tool and content management system that you can use to build entire websites, not just blogs, without knowing how to code.

Join web and multimedia developer Jeff Bennett, Wednesday, February 16, 2011, for an informative introduction to the WordPress publishing platform. This workshop will focus on the free, hosted version of WordPress available at WordPress.com. Topics to be covered include; signing up and activating a WordPress.com account, defining the look of your site with themes, basic settings, creating posts and pages and adding text, photos and videos to those pages, adding additional functionality to your sidebars with widgets and more.

Note: This is an introductory course focused on creating free websites hosted at WordPress.com. A separate workshop, WordPress 201, will focus on self-hosted WordPress websites covering additional functionality. The WordPress 101 workshop or equivalent experience is a prerequisite for the more advanced WordPress 201 workshop to be held in March.

This workshop is a part of the High Tech Maui Social Media workshop series.

Laptops are welcome, but not required.
