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 Fifteen.
- 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, I urge you to go check out WordPress Essential Training if you have a self-hosted WordPress site, or WordPress.com Essential Training if you have a WordPress.com site. These courses will walk you through all the settings that we're gonna use in this course, including installing a new theme and using the theme customizer.
It's important that you know how these features work and how to configure them before we dive in to the 2015 theme. So, with the WordPress Essential Training courses in mind, and a fully-functioning WordPress site with some content on it, and logged in as an administrator, we're ready to get started looking at 2015.
