working on WordPress

Day 1

Today we had an introduction to WordPress CMS. We learned that there are two main WordPress systems: wordpress.com and wordpress.org. “.com” is easier for beginners but also more limited. Today we focused on .com. With our trainer Emiliano, we created a small website with different pages, a primary menu and a blog. We learned how to add videos with youtube, music with soundcloud and create a gallery. We also learned to place pictures in text and add links. I think WordPress is useful because it is easy to get a website up and running and looks pretty good out of the box. I’m looking forward to learn how to customise WordPress websites more tomorrow.

Day 2

Today we went over how to install a WordPress application on the control panel and manually. Then we saw how to install various plug-ins such as security plug ins and gallery. We talked about WordPress security and how to make the application more robust.
