WordPress is the world’s most popular blogging platform. But WordPress’s power can handle much more than just simple blogs — personal sites, e-commerce stores, portfolio sites, and business websites and more can all be run with WordPress. In this course, hosted by award-winning trainer Geoff Blake, you’ll learn how easy it is to set up a traditional, static, website using WordPress. First, you’ll set up your site so that it hides any traces of being hosted by WordPress, including selecting a theme, setting up and customizing your site’s sidebar, and controlling your site’s footer. Then, you’ll see how to shift your site’s focus from posts to static pages, including how to set up custom PHP template files, setting up conditional code, and how to set up additional pages. You’ll also see how to re-establish a blog into your site, before finally being taken through the step-by-step process of building a sample static WordPress site. You’ll learn all this and more, so let’s get started!
