Get started with WordPress

We’ve just added training resources we use to support our WordPress training to Share – our content repository – for you to take, use and remix… for free.

These resources include videos and practical guides to help you understand what WordPress is, how it works and how to create a local installation to explore it for yourself.

We recommend you first watch the video (we think full screen in HD is nice), then work through the tasks.

Now try it yourself

To learn more about how to install, secure and customise WordPress, work through the tasks in Getting Started with WordPress (PDF)

Want to do more with WordPress?

You can access these and other supporting resources from the WordPress section on Share. We also run a workshop “Making WordPress work for you” both online and at our usual workshop venues.
