I learned a lot yesterday, was worth the time and money.
Having not had any formal training on WordPress, this course really helped me understand the process behind how WordPress works and I feel more confident in being able to make the changes that are needed.
This was a great course to help us with the basic editing capabilities of wordpress. We were also able to go through some of the issues we have been facing on our website in particular and got good advice on how these could possibly be improved.Thank you!!
