WordPress Workshop

Did you know that WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world? There are millions of websites built on WordPress. You can create your own website and customize it however you like. MIIS students can create a WordPress site for free thanks to MiddCreate. The DLC is here to help you create an online portfolio, a personal website, a blog, or whatever you want to build in your digital space.

Come to our WordPress workshop on Thursday, April 13 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM in the DLC Design Space to learn about WordPress and sharpen your skills. In this workshop, we’ll start with the basics and then learn how to customize the theme and design of a WordPress site. 

We’ll cover:

  • How to create a site on WordPress
  • The difference between MiddCreate and sites.miis.edu
  • How to choose and customize a theme
  • How to make links that open in a new window
  • How to create custom menus and navigation
  • How to customize widgets
  • How to create a static front page
  • And more

This workshop was created with TLM students in mind (think of your final mini-portfolio!) but all students, faculty, and staff are welcome. 

If you have questions about WordPress not addressed in this workshop, you can make an appointment at the DLC.
