    This course will explain how to build and maintain a simple zero-cost website in WordPress, eg for a local community group. The course will explore the free website/domain facilities offered by WordPress, and the limitations imposed. No prior knowledge is required other than familiarity with web browsing on the internet. The course will cover creating a WordPress account, WordPress themes (the free ones), building pages with text, images and external links, setting up menus, adding contact forms, integrating with Google Calendars and creating password restricted members' areas. Course members will be encouraged to discuss their own website requirements and try out the course techniques between sessions. Copies of weekly materials will be provided after each session.
