ASK ME ANYTHING ON WORDPRESS

Basic introduction to WordPress focused on covering the core elements and functionality of WordPress from content development to web design. From content creation, management, development, and organization. Includes basics of social media interactivity, web writing, WordPress Themes, and WordPress Plugins. This one day WordPress course will give you the knowledge to create, manage and run a great WordPress website.

Designed for beginner or for the non-web development expert. It is designed for those new to blogging, web publishing, and WordPress. The pace of the course is slow and focused on the individual needs of the participants. It is ideal for the personal blogger, small business owner or employee wishing to have an active site. There no prerequisites, no experience required, though familiarity with websites and web browsers are highly recommended.

But unlike other courses, I keep my class very small so each participant receives the personal attention they deserve. Limited to only 15 (fifteen) seats. You may register online through http://wphore.id/course, only for IDR 250,000,- /pax. Registration closes on Wed, March 20, 2017 or when seats for selected participants are fully booked!

Hosted by WPHORE, and fully endorsed by Universitas Al Azhar Indonesia.
