WordPress Posts, Pages & Menus Training Course

WordPress Posts, Pages & Menus Training Course

We launch into designing web pages, posts and menus with our WordPress Posts, Pages & Menus Training Course.

Yayyy! It's finally time for some web design, and we are ready to rock and roll! Our batteries are charged and we are set for launch. But where do we start?

Well, in a nutshell, the core of WordPress is all about Posts and Pages, and understanding the difference between the two. All shall be revealed in this online class. Plus, sandwiched between these two menu options in WordPress is the Media library, which both our Posts and Pages draw on for their image content. Again, we show you how easy it is to get started building your website content using the new(ish) Gutenberg system, which allows you to build your posts and pages using blocks that have been designed to display different types of content. And there are blocks for everything! You name it, there's a block for it. During this class, we take you through using the standard blocks that are supplied with WordPress, plus show you some very cool (and free) extra blocks you can add as plugins, that will provide you with even more types of layouts and options.

WordPress Pages

This section is usually where you create your 'static' pages for your website i.e. your home, about and contact pages, information pages, staff pages on so on. In other words, pages that are permanently displayed on your website. We show you how to best lay these out, and what Gutenberg blocks to use to make your pages look more attractive, We also discuss CTA's (Calls To Action) and how to best encourage your website visitors to engage and interact with your content.

WordPress Posts

Whilst creating posts adopts almost exactly the same process as creating pages, they are most often used in entirely another way: for displaying date-ordered news items, commonly known of as blog posts. We demonstrate how best to set up a news section on your website, how to format your blog posts, and again, how to use some of the Gutenberg blocks for enhancing layout and formatting options in order to make your blog posts more appealing. We also take an in-depth look at categories and tags, two further options available to your WordPress posts, which allow you to categorise and tag your news posts, so that your users can effortlessly browse your website content.

WordPress Menus

Most websites display a menu bar of buttons or links along the top of a website, or sometimes down the left-hand side. In this online class we show you how to setup your menu options, how to add, move and delete your menu options, how to create drop-down menus and sub-menu's, and how these tie in with the display your posts and pages. We also show you how to add categories and tags to your menus as well.

WordPress Media Library

Your WordPress media library holds the heart of your website's visual content, storing your jpeg's, gif's, png's and other image formats in an easy to browse grid of images, which you can sort, search and display in a number of ways. You can also add image descriptions and perhaps most importantly, SEO optimised text for each image in the title and alt text fields (please see our SEO course for more information about SEO).

WordPress Users

Whilst not directly related to our posts, pages and menu's, in this online class we also show you how to setup and manage your WordPress users i.e. how to grant access privileges to others so that they may edit your website. WordPress has a number of assignable roles you can allocate for different purposes (e.g. subscriber, editor, contributor etc) which allow you to grant certain levels of access from the most limited (subscriber) to the most control (administrator).

Overall, our WordPress Posts, Pages & Menus Training Course helps you get to grips with the powerful functionality of WordPress, and sees you well on the way to designing your website quickly and efficiently.
