Learn how to administer a WordPress website. Find out how to adjust settings, add users, customize menus and themes, install plugins, and more.
- At its core WordPress is a simple web publishing application. Write content, add media items, hit publish, and you have a custom web page. But that's just the publishing process. Once you have content to publish, you also want control over how that content is presented to your visitors, and what types of features your site should have available to you, your contributors if you have any, and your visitors. And as your site grows in popularity, the scope of content management will extend from just content you yourself created, to managing and moderating comments, receiving data from content forms, and more.
In WordPress Essential Training, we covered the publishing process in detail. In this course, we'll go behind the curtain of WordPress itself, and look at how to administer a WordPress site and take full advantage of all the features this content manager system has to offer.
