					           Using WordPress to Build a Website
In this course you will learn how to;

       Create and manage a test server
       Install the WordPress software
       Change it’s function from a blog to a website
       Configure a WordPress site
       Add pages and content
       Add dynamic content via widgets
       Install themes to enhance the look of your website
       Create a custom contact form
We will demonstrate how to create and manage a test server to install and configure a WordPress site
on a local PC. For the purposes of this course all the demonstrations will be carried out on this test
server, although the lessons could be completed on a fully functioning web server.

In the next lesson we will download and install the XAMPP software. This will be used to create a test
web server on which we will host our WordPress test site.
