How To Customize WordPress

One of the most powerful features of WordPress is that everything can be customized to suit your needs. Most modern WordPress themes, for example, offer almost unlimited customization options, allowing you to create the look and feel you want for your website or blog, often without the need to modify code.

WordPress itself comes with a default installation theme, allowing users to build a website or blog immediately after installing the software. Typically, WordPress releases a new theme to coincide with each major version release. While some customizations are specific to a particular theme, other customizations can work across many or all themes.

This video course will show you how to customize features of your WordPress site or blog and how to make customized changes to default WordPress theme versions. Video lessons include links to additional information and resources, and downloadable files.
