Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video What to know before you start this course, part of WordPress Themes: Twenty Seventeen.
- [Instructor] To get the most out of this course, you need to have a fully functioning WordPress or WordPress.com site set up with content, and you need to be an administrator with that site, so you can install a new theme. If this is the first time you're using WordPress or you need a refresher on how this application works, go check out WordPress Essential Training which will walk you through all the settings we'll use in this course including how to create content, how to install a new theme, and how to use the theme customizer. It's important that you know how these features work and how to configure them before we dive into the 2017 theme.
So with the WordPress Essential Training course fresh in mind and a fully functioning WordPress site with some content on it, log in as an administrator, and let's dig in.
