Advanced WordPress

WordPress is a content management system (CMS) many libraries utilize for their websites. WordPress helps easily create a framework for your website, but its open-source roots allow us to customize and shape our sites to our specific vision. 

During this interactive workshop, we will go past the basics of this popular CMS to discuss how we can take our websites to the next level through custom CSS, plugins, and more.  We will delve into best practices for a healthy WordPress site and make your site more dynamic and user-friendly. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring questions and their own experiences to share.
