We will teach you the fundamentals of using the WordPress content management system to create, edit and update your website or blog.

Requires No Prior Knowledge Of WordPress

WordPress Training Cork Website Training Made EasyWe provide WordPress training courses in Cork for anyone looking to build a website or blog or want to update the content of their existing website themselves. The WordPress training is available for individuals, groups or even if you wish to train a member of staff to take care of your website content.

The training provided requires no prior knowledge of the WordPress content management system.

Some of the areas we look at are the creation of web pages and including them in the main menu, publishing blog posts and have them appear on your blog page as snippets, customising your website or blog with both free and premium themes, use of widgets, adding media and editing text and enhancing your WordPress site by installing various plugins.

In addition, we will show you how you can optimise the speed loading times of your website, optimise your website keywords to be found in the search engine results page (SERP), adjusting the settings and installing plugins that can keep your website safe and secure for the future.

Content Management System or CMS for short, is a program that is 100% web-based, therefore you don’t need to install any software. A Content Management System allows a person without any programming experience to update and maintain the content of their website.

Having a nice website is very important, however keeping your website content updated and current is far more important and with some many users now using smartphones and tablets it is very important to have a website that is optimised for all internet connected devices.
