- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Joe Lowery. Welcome to Dreamweaver and WordPress Core Concepts. In this course, I'll demonstrate how to set up WordPress locally and integrate it into a Dreamweaver site for more efficient development. As well as the basics of working in WordPress, adding and editing blog posts, creating new site pages, inserting images and other media. I'll also show you how to convert the default WordPress theme into a custom DreamWeaver designed layout that fits perfectly in a full featured site.

We'll dive deeper into the Dreamweaver WordPress work flow and create responsive pages for tablets and phone layouts. In addition, I'll show you how to publish your Dreamweaver work online to make sure you've got the final results up and running. I hope you're as jazzed as I am to start exploring this exciting work flow between WordPress and DreamWeaver. Let's get started.
