Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video What to know before you start this course, part of WordPress Plugins: Social Media Buttons.
This course looks at how to utilize three different plugins to add social sharing buttons to your self-hosted WordPress site, to encourage your visitors to share your content with their friends and their followers. Before we get started, it's important that you have a functioning WordPress site live on the web to work with, and that you know the basics of how to set up and configure a WordPress site and install plugins. If this is the first time you're using WordPress, I encourage you to go check out my WordPress Essential Training course, right here in the lynda.com library.
This course will walk you through the process of setting up and configuring a WordPress site. And will also show you how to create new posts, organize your content, and master the WordPress back end. With a functioning WordPress site and the WordPress Essential Training Course in hand, let's add some social media sharing buttons, with WordPress plugins.
