Custom develop your website in this WordPress course

Class Description

In this Customizing your WordPress Theme class (Level 2), a professional WordPress developer will train you on how to manage your own site and create a dynamic presence on the web.

This WordPress Course is for students who want to learn more about how to edit an existing theme, add your own custom CSS, use Child themes, and more.  You will use an existing WordPress installation in the classroom to examine the framework architecture and add custom code to get you that exact look you need.

All of our WordPress – Customizing Your WordPress Theme classes are taught in a small, hands-on class environment so that you can get your questions answered in real time. The goal of this class is for you to be able to take the skills from class and immediately apply to your own WordPress project.
