I have been working with WP for almost 10 years now, and there has never been a better time to start learning how to use this wonderful platform. Elementor in particular has simplified many previously difficult, or laborious tasks and made it so much easier to create the exact content you have in mind, for your website or blog.
We will teach you about Elementor, the wonderful page builder, which has changed the WordPress landscape. Using Elementor we can easily create new pages and sections of our website, create maps, add photos, your imagination is really the only limit.
Occasionally during the chapters of our WordPress course, we will refer to various links, to services or products that we are using within the course, these are called affiliate links. You can use these links to get great discounts on the services and products in question.
One of the most important things, as you begin to learn about WordPress, is not to feel overwhelmed or frustrated. We are here to support you throughout your journey, pause, and ask us any questions you may have, then go back when you feel confident enough. Also, don’t be afraid to try things, WP can be rolled back at any time to a previous state, so go ahead and explore the platform to its fullest.
