Create a Wordpress Website

Bangor

Workshop Preparation

It will be useful to do your research beforehand – what do you want to tell visitors to your site? Write your content and gather together some of the images you'd like to use on your site. Bring them along on a USB memory stick that will work with a PC.

We strongly recommend that you bring your own laptop and charger to the session if that's possible. If you are unable to bring your own, we are able to provide one for you. It is essential that you request this beforehand by e-mailing siwan@bectu.org.uk
