What you'll learn in this wordpress training:

The well-being of our employees, students, clients, instructors, and guests is our number one priority here at General Assembly. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation very carefully and are adjusting delivery of our programs.

Due to the current health concerns, all GA short-form events, workshops & bootcamps will temporarily be held online - including this one.

Registered students will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this class will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.

WordPress powers one-third of the world's websites, and it's no surprise -- it's user-friendly and in active development, which means it's always improving. Its users benefit from thousands of themes and plugins, and Wordpress serves the needs of individuals, non-profits, businesses and governments world-wide.

However, while WordPress makes it easy to get started, publish content, install a template and use plugins, it doesn't mean its limits are reached. Once a user feels comfortable with the basics of WordPress, a user will realize that Wordpress' potential is greater.

In this workshop, we will learn advanced WordPress installation techniques, focus on advanced security measures, and learn how to customize a WordPress website so that it meets advanced needs, beyond the basic template customization.

Topics we'll cover are: best practices for WordPress installations; recommendations for WordPress configuration, security and analytics; and how to best customize templates via child themes, HTML, CSS and template modifications.

Once you complete this workshop, you'll understand WordPress beyond its simple user admin interface. This workshop explains common WordPress files, the WordPress relationship with host server, FTP, Wordpress file structure, child themes, HTML/CSS customizations and PHP/template customizations. Before this workshop you might feel comfortable with the WordPress back-end admin, but after this workshop, you will become familiarized with the WordPress server files, Wordpress database structure, and how you can use this knowledge to take your website to the next level of customization.

General Assembly’s classes, workshops and events are recreational and for avocational purposes only. No certificate is awarded.

Takeaways

  • Learn best practices for WordPress installations (install on its own directory)
  • Become familiar with WordPress backend files such as wpconfig, wp-content folder, .htaccess and more
  • Learn WordPress best practices for security and analytics
  • Learn about WordPress child themes
  • How to use HTML/CSS to make advanced WordPress theme customizations via child themes and WordPress customizer
  • Learn about which applications to use for advanced WordPress customizations via FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

Preparation

  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
  • This course will occur completely online using Zoom and Slack.
  • Course set up information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your course launches.
  • A general understanding of Wordpress is required (WordPress Fundamentals or Getting Started With WordPress or the equivalent are required). Experience with WordPress is preferred (experience installing WordPress, plugins and themes). Having a domain and web host is not necessary. Participants will learn how to take advantage of the takeaways via a class-provided website. If participants have a WordPress website and hosting provider, they are better able to take advantage of the takeaways due to familiarity to concepts. Participants should have a good understanding of web hosting and domains. Participants should have a proper note-taking system for subjects covered in class, and come with questions, as the workshop is a collaborative experience.


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.
