In the Creation Lab: Website in a Day (aka WordPress for Beginners)

Avery Swartz, web-designer for the Toronto Fringe, will be hosting a not-to-be-missed WordPress workshop in the Creation Lab.  If you have an indie company you'll want to be there. 

Saturday April 28,2012

Fringe Creation Lab: 720 Bathurst Street, Toronto
$129.00 per person

Learn how to build a website using WordPress – the popular blog and website publishing platform.  Whether you’re trying to set up a simple website for your small business, a personal blog, or perhaps you use WordPress at work and would like to learn more, this workshop is for you. You’ll learn how to install, customize, and maintain WordPress on your own website.
We will cover:
  • the difference between and hosting WordPress on your site
  • how to install WordPress
  • selecting and installing a WordPress theme
  • building webpages and your site’s menu bar
  • adding a blog to your website
  • plugins and widgets – how to customize WordPress
  • a few lines of code that are handy to know
Bring your laptop, your enthusiasm, and appetite (delicious catered lunch is included!), and by the end of the day, you’ll have built your own website from start to finish.
The workshop is limited to a small group, so there will be lots of time for questions and one-on-one support.
