Overview

WordPress Level 1 will be the building block to your experience with WordPress. It will give you the fundamental administrative functions of the WordPress dashboard and a solid understanding of basic themes and plugins.

This WordPress Level 2 course builds on the Level 1 course by providing an intermediate understanding of the backend functions of WordPress, such as SEO maintenance and Backup and Recovery functions, along with additional understanding of plugins and how
they can extend your WordPress website.

More than just providing an easy way to make a good looking web site or blog, WordPress was developed with search engine optimization in mind. The class also covers how to use powerful SEO plugins so that you will be more easily found online.

Anyone new to WordPress or who is self-taught on the product is a good candidate for this course. No prior web development or programming skills are required.
