WordPress Training

WordPress is a blogging platform and the most popular content management currently used on the Web (it is used by over 12% of the world’s 1 million biggest sites). If you would like to blog, you might like to get to grips with WordPress.

About WordPress

WordPressWordPress began in 2003 as just a single piece of code to enhance typography handling. It is now the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world. It’s open source, free to use, and millions of developers are working to enhance it every day.

WordPress itself is essentially a large collection of PHP files and an associated MySQL database. There are two options when it comes to installing WordPress: you can either have it hosted by a free provider such as wordpress.com, or you can install it on your own own server (i.e that of your web host, which could be us).

There are many advantages to having your own installation of WordPress: you are able to theme and configure it in exactly the right way for you, and you’re able to take advantage of the thousands of “plug-ins” which developers have created for it.
