Basic WordPress Training: Introduction
WordPress.org is the platform upon which we build all our artist websites here at TextileArtist.org. WordPress makes it super easy to set up, customise and maintain a website, with no knowledge of HTML or CSS required.
The aim of these tutorials is to give you the tools required to maintain and update your website without any need to hire a professional web designer. I’ll make the instructions as clear and simple as possible and avoid jargon; I want you to feel empowered to take control of your new web presence and know that it takes very little effort, skill or time to do so!
Before you begin
As you’ve been directed to these tutorials from TextileArtist.org, I’m assuming the following:
You’ve either had a website built by TextileArtist.org or you’ve built your own site following our Ultimate Guide to Building Your Own Artist Website.
If you’re missing any of this stuff, click on the appropriate links above to be taken to a tutorial that will help fill in the gaps.
How much of the Basic WordPress training should I do?
This course is designed so that you can either follow it from beginning to end, or dip in and out of its sections as or when you want to learn about a certain topic, so the simple answer is – do as much or as little of the training as you need to feel confident in running your WordPress website.
