Make your own website with WordPress at MAD

7 x 2 hour lessons by video on Thursdays
Dates: from June 4th until July 16th
20:00 – 22:00

Start: Thursday, May 28th
Teacher: Nils Hilbers
Method: live video-chat (Google Hangouts or Zoom)

WordPress is the world’s most popular open-source content management system. That’s a fancy way of saying that it allows you to quickly create a website online in just 2 months. More info about WordPress? Just visit https://wordpress.org/. We recommend using self-hosted WordPress.org because it gives you access to all the WordPress features out of the box. So do not register with WordPress.com because that way you will have fewer features and the website will be on a web server owned by WordPress.com. The WordPress software is free, but you will need web hosting for the software. To get really technical your hosting must have a database for WordPress. You will also need to choose your domain. Don’t worry, a lot of web hosters offer a special package deal for WordPress that include everything you need because a lot of people want to start with a WordPress website.
