Looking for a simple way to have an attractive, dynamic and useful web presence for your library? One that is easy to maintain as well? And without spending anything on software? Sound too good to be true? Come learn how it can be done with WordPress. WordPress is an easy-to-use content management system (CMS) that lets you create and maintain a library or personal website without learning complex & expensive web development software.


During this workshop we'll provide you with a temporary WordPress website that you can use as a model for later development of your own WordPress library website.


In the "Getting Started" workshop we'll cover:

  • How WordPress helps you organize your library information.
  • Setting up an easy to update page for library news.
  • Changing the look of your library's WordPress based site through the use of themes.
  • Options for letting your library's customers leave comments on your site.
  • Incorporating content from blogs, flickr and other services.
  • Adding media content to your pages.
  • And much more!


In the Intermediate workshop you'll learn much more about managing your own installation of WordPress and customizing your library's WordPress based web site.
Topics will include:

  • Tips on keeping your site secure and well maintained
  • Using the file editor to make minor edits to theme file 
  •  Customizing CSS to make simple changes to site
  • Great plugins that add great features to WordPress 
  •  New WordPress features including the Custom Menus options
  • Finding & installing themes and plugins
