Newbie Workshop

***Workshop is SOLD OUT***

Sunday, August 26 from 10am-3pm.   Free Registration for WordCamp Chicago Attendees, with purchase of a full conference pass only!

NOTE: If the Newbie Workshop tickets are NOT listed on the Registration Form, then they are sold out.

Have you installed WordPress, but it’s just setting there? Or maybe you keep telling yourself you need to set up that WordPress blog.

Join Bob Dunn and Mary DuQuaine for 4 hours of hands-on WordPress goodness. We’ll start at the beginning and you will learn how to:

  • Install WordPress on your own domain.
  • Basic steps to take after installing WordPress.
  • Intro to your WordPress dashboard.
  • How to create posts and pages, and the differences between them.
  • How to insert media such as photos and videos.
  • Install and use plugins and widgets. (oh my!)
  • And get tips on how you can set up a blogging schedule or prepare to take your blog into a full-fledged website.

Space is limited to 25 so register now.

Note: It will help if you have your domain and hosting purchased with WordPress installed. And make sure to bring your laptop computer – wifi available.

    How do you know whether there are still seats for this workshop, given the 25 cap? This is the only event I can do for this weekend. I’d prefer not to register unless I am guaranteed a seat in this event. Thanks.

    If you cannot find a larger space to accommodate more people could you
    put me on a list to attend IF someone else cancels out?
    Thank you.

    • We overbooked the workshop by about 5 slots, so there likely won’t be any openings. You can check with the workshop leaders as the workshop starts on Sunday to see if they can fit you in.
