How to build a WordPress website

How to build a WordPress website

By Paul Blundell


A good understanding of how to build a WordPress website will help you decide how much of your organisation’s website you can build yourself and at what point you might need additional support from a web developer. In this Digital Heritage Lab online masterclass recording, Paul Blundell shows you how to set up a WordPress website from scratch and takes you on a journey through the dashboard and the different elements and functions that you can utilise as you build or rebuild your organisation’s website.

This masterclass is broken down into three recordings:

Part 1 — The install — getting started with WordPress [This recording is one hour and six minutes in length.]

Part 2 — Building your new website [This recording is 32 minutes in length.]

Part 3 — Going live [This recording is 39 minutes in length.]
