Get an introduction to what WordPress is and its main features before creating a staging site and learning how to use the admin panel.

Towards the end of 2018, WordPress did a massive overhaul of its entry and page editor. The updated content in this course covers the major changes and how to work with this new version.

Now that your website is finally ready, Ignacio teaches you how to select a host and upload your site.
