WordPress Class Curriculum – Two Week / 60 hour / 10 Day Course

On the first day of class, we will dive into the world of WordPress.org and the Generate Press theme. You’ll be given a hosted staging environment to start your work. Topics will include how to begin the web design process with wireframing, UX/UI design, and Figma prototypes. You’ll be using the WordPress Customizer to set your website style guide, typography, and color choices, and we’ll talk about the importance of headline tags for SEO. By the end of the day, you’ll have the framework in place to start building your website.

You will practice using containers to create a home page layout. You will be working on menus and navigation, adding photographs and images to your website, and learning how to use global blocks, assets, elements, and non-standard global styles.

You will install plugins needed for your website and use them to enhance your content areas—including photo galleries, hero image slide shows, social media icons, and back-end performance plugins. You’ll be learning plugin do’s and don’ts and best practices for performance.

You will be creating a blog for your website and learning how to customize the reading settings, tags, categories, sidebar widgets, comments, change logs, excerpts, and featured images. You will also be learning how to create a unique blog page layout using Elements (a Generate Press Premium feature) and other styling features.

You will learn how to add a MailChimp newsletter signup to the home page, and how to use CSS to style the html form. We’ll talk about best ways to incorporate email marketing and CRM programs. You’ll also be learning about forms and creating a contact form. There will be time left to finish up the layout and design of the home page, contact us, and blog pages.

You will focus on designing additional content pages for the website, including informational (Service, Product) pages, About, and we’ll be creating a subnav with additional types of pages and links.

You will learn how to embed video, and how to enhance your website with animations and special effects. You will be adding special effects to the pages you have built.

You will learn how to adjust your website layout for mobile and tablet. You will be troubleshooting layout issues that might occur as you move from the desktop view to mobile and tablet. We will be discussing mobile-first / responsive web design best practices.

You will focus on how to optimize your website with SEO best practices so that it can be found in a Google search, and learn how to adjust settings using RankMath, our preferred SEO plugin. You will also learn about connecting your site to Google Analytics for reporting and website metrics. The rest of the day will be spent putting the finishing touches on your website!

On the last day of class, we will be learning how to optimize your website for performance and speed. We will talk about website hosting options, SSL Certs, Forcing HTTPS, A Records and CNAMES. We will discuss ways to stage websites for clients as well as hosting options. The day will be open for any final questions.
