WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that allows anyone to create a website in minutes. The CMS is highly flexible, and with thousands of themes, plugins and the ability to edit CSS within the site structure, it provides the ability to create custom, complex, and unique websites.
During this session, we will discuss the basics of WordPress and explore a sandbox site to customize, and build a website. Attendees can use the knowledge to manage their library’s site, help with an existing site, or teach entrepreneurial and passionate users how to develop their website.
