WordPress Essential Training

WordPress Essential Training is an online self-paced course that covers the basics of maintaining your  Extension website (blogs.extension.wisc.edu,fyi.extension.wisc.edu or county.extension.wisc.edu) and creating engaging content. It is broken into two parts: one for everyone contributing content to an Extension website (Part A) and one for those responsible for administering all or part of a website and anyone creating a new Extension website (Part B).

Our goal with this training is to get you comfortable with the basics of working with WordPress and how that generally applies to your site. It should take 3-5 hours to complete both Part A and B.
