This course has helped me to understand how to put together my first website. Everything was explained step-by-step and there were lots of useful and practical tips included.

A great basic class on WordPress that is short and sweet, but directly to the point. You can do this in one day and feel empowered to start your WP site.

This course is saving my life! I have been so confused trying to figure out wordpress and how to create my site. Everything else I have seen online has been overwhelming but this course really breaks it down and now I am finally starting to understand :)

Wish the course was more centered to Wordpress and not a specific hosting solution using a premium theme.

This was basic, but he did not show what it looks like to the public when done. Also, how the public searches and what the url looks like when it comes up. Not enough details from beginning to end

this course was informative but it wasn't elaborated on it just showed basic information to get you stated. Well put together and well planned but it wasn't what I was looking for.

I wish I had taken this class before building my own WP site! What a great overview of building a Wordpress website. John's lessons are presented in a step by step, logical way, and it's easy to follow along as you can see him work on his own screen. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone who thinks building a website is out of their league. John explains the Wordpress process with clarity, and I'll be recommending this course

I really enjoyed John's course on installing a wordpress blog/website. John is a good teacher and using John's course to install my own site made it really easy.

You talked about adding something to the webpage a like button which was connected to Facebook I would have like to see you actually show us how to do that.

Hey guys, if you want a complete walk through of how WordPress works and its functionalities, then this is the right course for you all. I took John's course and recommend the same to all of you. His course is easy to understand through his roadmap. Also puts a light on popular plugins for SEO and optimizing your website. Give it a try.
