Intermediate WordPressThis intermediate course takes your WordPress site to the next level. You will learn how to thoroughly customise themes, find the right plugin for your needs, understand the different requirements for mobile platforms (smartphones/ tablets) and unleash the full power and potential of this CMS platform.
Mike's hands-on course will teach you WordPress best practice, SEO strategies, security tips and caching techniques.
You'll get started with e-commerce and find out about little-known and useful features of WordPress - and all from the man who helped create it in the first place.
If you want to work on an existing WordPress site you are more than welcome, but we will provide a pre-installed site for up to a month for all attendees.
This course is aimed at those who've already got to grips with the WordPress CMS. You don't need any programming experience, but a little CSS knowledge is useful.
This is a very practical hands-on course where you will complete exercises, ask questions and engage in discussions to make the most of the time.
The course costs £200. You will receive an electronic copy of the teaching materials, software, and programmes. You will also receive one month's free hosting courtesy of MadLab to test and refine your site. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
