In this course, author Joseph Lowery shows how to create a robust WordPress-based site using Dreamweaver. The course lays out the essentials of planning a site, explains how to implement custom sidebars, and demonstrates building page templates. The course also explains how to integrate PHP functionality and extend the WordPress database.
A WordPress site can be so much more than just a blog. First, we'll lay the groundwork so you understand what your options are in a WordPress site, and then I'll show you how to make those options a reality, one at a time, right in Dreamweaver. You'll see how to display your choice of full post or excerpt, as well as how to configure them to get the length and number you want. Then we'll cover WordPress pages so you can move beyond the basic blog format in a full multipage site.
This course takes full advantage of the PHP and MySQL backbone of the WordPress application to further extend the site. You'll also see how to create new MySQL tables and incorporate the data they contain on your WordPress pages. We'll leverage Dreamweaver's built-in PHP server model support to keep the coding to a minimum. There is really a ton of functionality lying under the WordPress hood, and with Dreamweaver's help, this course will tune it up and help you rev up your sites.
