In All Classes, Web Design, Wordpress by techtalkamerica

WordPress has become the industry standard for building a website. There are tons of themes (both free and paid), plugins to jazz up your site, and endless customizations to explore. In this class which was taught live on June 6, 2015, Mark Collier and David A. Cox will show you the basics of how to navigate a WordPress website.
