Introducing Wordpress: Learn by Video (Learn by Video) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This innovative product combines interactive video and a full-color printed reference to teach you the essentials you’ll need to build a weblog site using Wordpress

Experienced instructor Joe Chellman presents 4.5 hours of exceptional quality video tutorials, complete with lesson files, assessment quizzes, and review materials. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside in iMovie. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they've learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge.

You will start absolutely from scratch, working through everything you need to know to build a complete weblog.  Of course, with WordPress, you can build a very complete website of any kind, and what you learn here will be applicable to the building of most kinds of websites.  You’ll look at installation and configuration, including an overview of the various contexts in which you can install and use WordPress, and the settings that are important to address immediately. You will then take a look at managing your written content and visual media, with special attention paid to some new post management and creation features in the latest version. After that you will spend some time on visual design and theming, especially working with child themes and will then go into how to extend WordPress through plugins, including examples of many essential plugins in several categories.

Joe Chellman is a web designer in the late 90’s sense: a tech generalist who is capable of doing everything a website needs to come to life. Since tinkering with the web early in university, he has gone on to build many dozens of websites for artists, nonprofits, and small business both independently, and in collaboration with other organizations around the United States, and occasionally around the world. He is also a professional-caliber drummer and percussionist, so despite being a giant nerd, he has empathy for his fellow non-nerd humankind. He enjoys helping everyone get up to speed on the (mostly) joy and (sometimes) headaches of participating in the building of the web.
