About Introduction to WordPress

Our Introduction to WordPress course covers all the essentials of the WordPress dashboard and teaches you how to set up themes, plugins, posts and pages yourself. It will cover all the main features of WordPress without touching on coding. It will also cover some parts of SEO and WordPress security.

Who is this course for?
