Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before starting this course, part of Start with a Theme: Twenty Fourteen.
To get the most out of this course, you should have a fully functional WordPress or WordPress.com site that you can install 2014 on. 2014 is available both for self-hosted WordPress sites. And on WordPress.com. If this is the first time you're using WordPress, I encourage you to go check out either the WordPress Essential Training course for self-hosted WordPress or the WordPress.com Essential Training course. Right here in the lynda.com library.
These courses will teach you how to use WordPress and how to configure the different settings we'll be talking about in this course? So having that foundational understanding of the application before you start this course is important, so you can follow along. So, with a fully functional WordPress or WordPress.com site available and an understanding of how to use it, and how to configure different settings, let's get cracking.
