    This course is a beginner's guide to building and maintaining a simple zero-cost website in WordPress, eg for a local community group. The course explores 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 covers creating a WordPress account; WordPress themes (the free ones); building pages with text, images and other content; setting up menus; adding contact forms; integrating with Google Calendars and Maps; and creating password restricted members' areas. Course members are encouraged to discuss their own website requirements and try out the course techniques between sessions. Copies of weekly materials are provided after each session.
