WordPress Training

Here’s a little bit about the idea behind our WordPress workshops.

In a nutshell WordPress comes in 2 flavours. The first is WordPress.com, a free hosted service, and the second is WordPress.org, a free download that you run on your own server. Our WordPress training sessions will be covering WordPress.org, however WordPress.com users will still find most of the content relevant. We REALLY love WordPress and in the true spirit of Open Source we wanted to give something back to the community and help get people up and running with designing their very own WordPress website!

wpsupport.com.au provides these workshops free of charge so they are readily accessible for the community. In order to continue providing these workshops, we’re relying on the WordPress community and others to help promote our website. So please spread the word, share the website link, follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook! We’re also hoping with the support of advertisers, we can provide more and more free workshops!
