WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. It's the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

In this course, we'll explore the many configuration options, functions and features available in the self-hosted version of WordPress. As we work together, I'll explain WHY and HOW things work in WordPress, so you can learn more quickly and with more confidence.

  • Using images, video and audio smartly
  • How WordPress can help you better organize your website's content
  • When, why and how to apply important updates in WordPress
