Full Workshop Outline

Installing WordPress

Please note: 

During the workshop the instructor will demonstrate installing WordPress should the time allow.  Because of the technicality of manual installations and based on the technical ability of the attendees, the instructor may choose to explain the installation process rather than performing an actual installation. Full instructions on installation are provided in the course materials.

During the workshop we will be using the Classic Editor plugin due to it’s compatibility with most themes.
