WordPress is a fabulous way to start a unique domain blog for individuals or an organisation. WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL, which runs on a web hosting service. Its features include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by more than 18.9% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites.
In Vishakhapatnam, on the behalf of Adharana charitable trust, I organised a WordPress training which included sessions on various computer platforms like C language, WordPress and other basic computer applications.
Here, the subjects covered were the web template system using a template processor which is an enthralling feature of WordPress. The various themes which can use to change the look and functionality of a WordPress website without altering the content or structure of the site are a versatile feature of WordPress and this was explained in the training. The information about PHP, HTML, and CSS coding techniques to further enhance the themes were covered.
Features like integrated link management, a search engine–friendly, clean permalink structure, and the ability to assign nested, and multiple categories to articles and support for tagging of posts and articles were discussed. Automatic filters those are included, providing standardized formatting and styling of text in articles (for example, converting regular quotes to smart quotes) was accounted in this WordPress training. WordPress also supports the Trackback and Pingback standards for displaying links to other sites that have them linked to a post or article and this feature was saliently elaborated to the aspirants.
The training as well as the farewell day speech at this WordPress training by me was well received from the aspirants.
