In our WordPress Oxygen Builder Training Course we take a close look at the excellent WordPress design tool and theme designer Oxygen Builder.
It's hard to explain in just a couple of paragraphs what makes Oxygen Builder so good, but in a nutshell, it brings back the pleasurable process of designing a website, like in those early days of using Adobe Dreamweaver. Where you could point, click and move something, without having to go hunting for the bit of code that would let you move it. Where menus, drop-downs and colour pickers are a click away. Where you can design the website you want on screen, how you want it to look. No more digging into blocks of code to find that bit of padding that you want to remove. No more struggling with PHP and HTML to get that logo to line up with your menu bar.
Well, if only it was that simple. Whilst Oxygen Builder does a fantastic job, and certainly brings back the experience of design like it used to be in the 'good old days', it still has it's quirks, and learning to master it still requires knowing the principles of HTML and web design, even if you don't have to 'get out and code it yourself'. In this module, we explain from the ground up how to get stuck in using Oxygen Builder to design your template theme, headers and footers, and how best to construct these so that they are mobile phone friendly (aka responsive). Either standalone, or in conjunction with WordPress' own Gutenberg design functionality, we demonstrate how best to get to grips with this powerful plugin, with a series of exercises designed to get you confidently using Oxygen Builder to create your website.
