Advanced WordPress

In this course, you will learn how to build sophisticated websites for yourself and your clients; how to customise and brand administration screens; how to build an e-commerce; and how to create events booking and membership sites. You'll get an insight into choosing the right production and marketing tools for your needs and learn how to build a truly unique theme using WordPress child theme capabilities.

This course is aimed at those who've already got to grips with the WordPress CMS. You'll need to have some programming know-how, but in-depth expertise isn't essential.

This advanced course is ideal for those who are already comfortable building WordPress sites but are looking to work in the field professionally - perhaps wanting to make a living building WordPress sites or creating more sophisticated WordPress sites. It will help those wanting to take control of your current WordPress site and fully understand its capabilities. Marketing and promotional companies looking to take their clients' sites further will also benefit, as well as those who want to bring their website creation and maintenance in-house.
