Build a great website for your volunteer group, club, church, or other community organization with WordPress. No previous WordPress experience required!
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Morten Rand-Hendriksen, and this is WordPress DIY: Community Website. In this part of the WordPress DIY series we're building a website for a community from scratch using WordPress, a free theme and a handful of free plugins. We'll start off by planning the content of the site, what is required, what needs to be created, and where does everything go. Then, we'll install a new theme and customize the appearance of the site to make the content stand out and provide a great user experience for the visitor.
Next, we'll use a couple of well crafted plugins to add new features to the site, including a community forum, an events calendar, members only areas, and advanced contact forms. And finally, I'll give you some tips on testing and securing your site and your content. Your journey to building your own community website starts here, so let's get crackin' with WordPress DIY: Community Website.
