Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying the workflow that is right for you, part of WordPress: Workflows.
- To make this course as useful as possible for you the viewer, I've split it into three individual chapters that each cover a particular workflow in isolation. You can watch the whole course from top to bottom and learn about all the workflows, or you can pick the workflow that fits best for your current situation and only watch that one chapter. It's entirely up to you. The three workflows featured here are as follows: First, building your first WordPress site. Second, customizing your WordPress site with a child theme.
And third, building a custom site for yourself or a client. In the first chapter, we'll look at building your first WordPress site. This workflow guides your through the process of planning for and setting up a live site on the web and looks at how to create and publish content. This chapter is great for anyone just getting started, who wants to get up and running quickly. In chapter two, we look at the most common leveling up new WordPress users undertake. Customizing the appearance of your site with a child theme. Here we cross the line from simply using WordPress to publish content to building something for WordPress to enhance or change the visitor's user experience.
We'll look at setting up a local development environment, migrating content between local and public environments, and designing and developing themes around real content. Chapter three enters into advanced WordPress theme development, focusing on custom site builds. Here we're unleashing the true potential of WordPress by using it as a content management system or CMS, rather than just as a simple publishing platform. We'll look at rules and responsibilities, staging environments, version control, publishing strategies and effective development practices to ensure smooth sailing through the project.
As you can tell, we have a lot of ground to cover. So now, you have to make a decision. Watch the whole course from start to finish or pick the chapter that best fits your current project and skill level. After all, you can always come back and watch the rest later.
