How to install WordPress and How to create your own theme

This month is a beginner’s themed night and will cover two introductory topics – how to set your first WordPress website up and an introduction to creating bespoke WordPress themes. As always there will be plenty of chance to ask questions, discuss solutions and network with a wide range of WordPress users, from beginner to expert.

Martin Vines – Self Employed Web Developer and IT Support at Martin’s HelpDesk

For complete beginners, Martin will explain the steps involved in getting your first WordPress site up and running, based on his own experience. He will cover:

* hosting

* installing the WordPress files

* tools (and skills) needed to get a website up and running

Level: Beginner



Creating bespoke themes – a beginners guide

David James – Designer and WordPress developer

If you’re fed up of tweaking off the shelf themes to make them fit your design and want to start creating your own, David will cover the basics of what’s needed to turn your HTML and CSS files into a working WordPress theme
