WordPress 101 for Campaigners – Parts 1 & 2

Want to create your own website for your group or cause? Unsure of how to begin? Join us for our 101 with Yarrow Digital!

In an ever-digital working and campaigning world, a website is a useful resource for campaigners, groups and organisations to house all your important information and act as a hub of resources for potential supporters and connections. And creating your own is not as hard as you might think!

Join us for this two-part WordPress 101 training for campaigners taking place as follows:

Part 1 – Thursday 24th June, 4.30pm – 6pm

Part 2 – Thursday 1st July, 4.30pm – 6pm

Across the two sessions, you can expect to cover:

  • Introduction to WordPress and why it’s useful for a group to have its own website
  • Hosting, installation and setup
  • Getting around WordPress
  • Planning your site
  • Making Posts
  • Creating Pages
  • Images, audio, video
  • Using themes to change your site’s appearance
  • Customising your page
  • Menus, categories and navigation
  • Plugins
  • Finishing touches & Analytics

Some tips on security too (Please note that for a more in-depth look at Digital Security for activists, you can sign up to attend our ‘Digital Activism & Online Security’ workshop taking place on Thursday 10th June )

Ahead of, between, and after the sessions you will have access to useful digital resources to help you develop new skills and build on any learnings. More information about these will be shared with participants upon registration.
