W8 - Building a Dynamic Library Website With WordPress (CANCELLED)

9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Polly-Alida Farrington, Consultant & Trainer, PA Farrington Associates

Looking for a simple way to have an attractive and dynamic web presence? One that is easy to maintain as well? Come learn how it can be done with WordPress, which is not just a blogging platform, but a robust content management system that lets you create and maintain a website without learning complex and expensive web development software. Workshop leaders cover how WordPress helps organize your information, options for installing WordPress, setting up an easy to update page for news, changing the look of your site through the use of themes, incorporating content from blogs, Flickr, and other services, adding media content, managing and customizing your installation, and more! Please bring a laptop so you can work on a sample site during the session. Temporary WordPress websites are provided to practice with.
