ABC series: Intro to WordPress: Workshop A

Introduction to the WordPress Content Management Systems (CMS).

A CMS is a web application designed to make it easy for non-technical users to add, edit and manage a website, to include memberships and even e-commerce transactions. We will explore how to use a free version of WordPress hosted at WordPress.com, that enables you build a simple blog or website in just a couple of minutes. You will learn what is the difference between hosted and managed version of WordPress (downloaded from WordPress.org and installed at your own hosting).

There are three workshops in this series:
