WRK14 Workshops Track



WordPress offers one of the easiest ways to give your users a full-featured site (not just a blog!) they can update on their own. This workshop goes from Installation 101 all the way to Applied Widget Theory and Special Topics in Theme Options. By the end of the day you'll understand how to install and maintain WordPress (on IIS or Apache), how to get the most out of its built-in features, and how to extend its CMS capabilities with themes and plugins. Basic knowledge of PHP is extremely helpful, but not required.
