Introduction to WordPress
Get to grips with the worlds most popular content management system.
WordPress is everywhere, companies both large and small use it to run their websites and web applications, given this popularity it’s almost certain that anyone ever tasked with looking after websites will come across the CMS. We find WordPress to be one of the more intuitive systems around, but there are still some common pitfalls people encounter when getting started with the system so we’ve put together a training course which introduces the CMS, the most commonly encountered issues and series techniques essential for running and maintaining a successful WordPress website.
