WordPress Workshop for NPOs

Do you need to write for a non-profit organization? Does your organization need a website or a blog?

This workshop aims to bring basic knowledge and skills to get you started with WordPress.

WordPress is the world’s most popular blogging software, but it is in use for many other types of websites like event calendars, online storefronts, photo galleries, online brochures and many other kinds of websites that need to be easy to manage and professional in look, feel and functionality. WordPress is also free.

The workshop will cover:
* Installation
* Upgrading the theme
* Adding functionality with plugins
* Creating pages
* Creating posts
* Adding images to you work
* Adding a link to a post
* Tags
* Categories
* Menus
* Widgets

The workshop fee is $75. It is not essential to bring a laptop, though you may.
