Full site editing for site creators

Introduction

This course is a no code, beginner overview created for website owners and site creators who wants to learn about and prepare for full site editing.

Who is this course for?

First, I want to add a few words about who I mean when I say site creators and who I believe will benefit from these lessons.

A site creator can be a site owner who manages a business online with their own website. They don’t often change their theme. But they solve most problems with a bit of help from Google or their hosting company. They sometimes read about WordPress updates and even help others on support forums from time to time.

A site creator can also be a person who manages and creates websites -sometimes many sites, for other people, without code. They may offer complete services or be experts in their field of content, marketing, and SEO, or focus on helping people set up shops to generate side incomes.

If you recognize yourself in the second category, you may find these lessons too beginner-oriented. I would love to hear from you about what you would like to learn.

Are there any prerequisites?

To make the most out of this course, you need to have a basic knowledge of:

  • How to install plugins
  • Working with blocks in the editor.

You will also need a WordPress installation. A test site where you can try things and make changes without the risk of breaking your existing website.
