who Learn WordPress would like to …

you are spoiled for choice: there are countless books, blogs and tutorials on the subject. Sure: When you are programming websites, sooner or later everyone stumbles across the term “WordPress”.

And for good reason. WordPress is ideal for creating a website or blog, setting up and managing shops or member sites - to present your company optimally on the web with just a few clicks. The best part, however, is that it is very convenient to create, maintain and modify content on your website.

The great thing about WordPress is also the ease of use, which ensures that in principle everyone can learn WordPress. Thus, it is also possible for beginners who have no special programming knowledge to build a website that looks professional and serious.

WordPress has many different functions that you can use to manage your website, from simple contact forms to professionally designed themes that you can implement in your website. The advantage for beginners is that these ready-made scripts, which are provided free of charge, can simply be inserted into your website.

This course is a bestseller at Udemy, the largest workshop platform, and is also based on the CHIP workshop “WordPRess”.

Workshop: WordPress from A to Z

Here, too, my goal is to give you, in a nutshell, understandable access to WordPress. After all, WordPress is a tool. And it is always advisable to have the best possible mastery of a tool that you use every day, right?

So if you are considering how to best implement your idea for your own online project or website, attending an online course for WordPress is definitely a good choice!

And as luck would have it, I offer just such a course :-) I will explain WordPress to you from A to Z in six modules. Starting with a “safe” installation, the first ToDos that you should do with every new installation - up to all the functions of WordPress: insert images, videos and galleries, offer files for download, use pages and posts wisely, get the most out of the media library and much more.

Here is a compilation of the course content. I think that this is a very good mix, so that on the one hand you get a really comprehensive overview of WordPress and can really use the system without any problems.

On the other hand, I have always tried to keep the “big picture” in view so that you don't get lost too much in details that you will probably never need in practice.
