WordPress for Coders
Learn to control and customize WordPress through coding (HTML, CSS, and PHP)
All sessions are full. Contact us to be added to the waiting list.
If you know HTML and CSS and want to gain more control over WordPress, this is the class for you.
WordPress lets you do a lot without having to code, but there are some things that only web developers (who know how to code) can do, or it may be easier/better to do with code
In this class you’ll learn how to install WordPress on your local computer for editing and testing code. You’ll learn how to use code to customize parts of WordPress, work with themes, edit CSS, and more. You’ll also learn best practices such as backing up a WordPress site. You’ll gain a more thorough understanding of what WordPress does behind the scenes and how to work with it.
Knowledge of PHP is a plus, but is not required to take this class.
If you’re not a coder, and simply want to learn how to use WordPress to edit and manage content, you should look at our WordPress: Create a Website or Blog class.
As one of our smaller courses, tuition for this course is due in full before the start date. The best way to save on this course is to take it as part of a certificate program.
There are no extra fees or taxes for our courses. The price you see on this page is the maximum you’ll pay us.
However, if you plan to take the course live online, you may need to obtain required software. We’ll help you get set up with a free trial of paid software prior to the class. Most of our coding classes utilize freely-available open-source software. For most of our design and motion graphics courses, we will help you get set up with a free trial of Adobe Creative Cloud. If you attend the course in-person, we will have a computer already set up for you with all of the required software for no additional cost.
We don’t currently offer discounts as we do our best to affordably prices our courses.
