Get the most out of the self-hosted version of WordPress and create feature-rich blogs and websites. We will explain how to get a web host, set up a domain, plus download, configure and upload WordPress to your newly hosted site. Then we’ll explore the tools in WordPress, demonstrating how to set up your profile and create content to share with your web audience. There are sections on adding images, video, formatting and links that make posts pop. You will also learn about installing plugins, creating custom themes and attracting readers with permalinks and social sharing.

Learners do not need to have any prior knowledge of using WordPress. You should be comfortable using a computer for general use, such as basic keyboard and mouse skills, opening files and folders, and launching applications.
