Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video What you'll need to follow this course, part of WordPress and Genesis DIY: Restaurant Website.
- In this course, we'll build a website for a restaurant using WordPress and a Genesis Framework. The goal is that once you're done watching, you'll have a fully functional website for your restaurant. To follow along, there's a few things you'll need. First, you need a live WordPress site hosted somewhere on the web. Throughout the course, I'll be working on a live site, and you should follow along with your own live site hosted with your preferred hosting provider. If you don't already have a site set up and ready to go, you can check out the short course WordPress and Genesis DIY: Setting Up Genesis here in the lynda.com library.
I created this course specifically to get you up and running with WordPress and the Genesis DIY series as quickly as possible. I'll be doing a lot of work in the WordPress admin area during this course. So if this is the first time you're using WordPress or it's been a while since you've logged in, take a little time to familiarize yourself by checking out the WordPress Essential Training course right here in the lynda.com library. Trust me, it's well worth the time to freshen up your knowledge. The last thing you'll need is your own content.
The goal of the course is for you to build your own site, and that can only be done with your content. Now what's this content I speak of? Well, in the coming chapters, I'll walk you through the process of figuring out what content you need to create, where it should be on the site, and how to set everything up.
