Free Recording: WordPress Workshop for Beginners

A lot of WordCamps and WordPress meetup groups hold beginner workshops. Unfortunately, most of those aren’t recorded. In this article, we will share free WordPress training videos that covers all the topics discussed in a WordPress beginner workshop.

WordPress Workshop

The goal of WordPress beginner workshop is to help new users get started. The topics discussed are:

What is WordPress? Why is WordPress free? Why you should use WordPress?

What’s the difference between WordPress.com vs WordPress.org?

How to choose the best WordPress hosting? – We recommend either Bluehost or Siteground.

How to install WordPress?

How to use WordPress (Create posts, add pages, embed images and videos, change the template, add widgets, customize menus, install plugins, and various other tips and tricks).

We have covered all these topics in our free WordPress training videos (34 step by step video tutorials).

Let’s take a look at some of our most helpful WordPress tutorials:

How to attend WordPress Beginner Workshop LIVE

The best way to attend a live WordPress beginner workshop in person is to find a WordCamp or a WordPress meetup group near you.

WordCamp is a non-profit conference that focuses on everything WordPress. There is a WordCamp held just about every week worldwide. You can see the full schedule to see if it’s in a location near you.

Alternatively, you can find a local WordPress meetup group in your area. Currently there are more than 490 local WordPress meetup groups in 59 countries.

WordPress meetups

Unlike WordCamps, WordPress meetup groups are smaller and provide greater opportunity for beginners to interact and mingle with the WordPress experts in their area.

It’s important to note that not every WordCamp or WordPress meetup group hold beginner workshops. You should check the schedule to make sure it’s being offered.

If it is not, then you can always contact the organizers to see if there is a possibility for them to offer a live beginner workshop. Most of the time, meetup and WordCamp organizers are very receptive to suggestions.

We hope that you found our WordPress training videos as a helpful replacement of WordPress beginner workshops. You should also check out our beginner’s guide on how to learn WordPress for free in a week or less.

  4. Hello WP
    I don’t think I have ever attempted anything that is so confusing and overwhelming as trying to own a WP site. Even to get your training videos is a major in cryptic mazes and frustration at a level I have not experienced for many years.

  7. I find your site just as frustrating as trying to figure out wordpress.org. I am wondering if I made a mistake in switching over. I am unable to figure out the simplest things like how to transfer my site counter over to the .org address. I have no idea how to add widgets and other simple things. I’ve tried copying and pasting codes as tutorial say but…NOTHING happens.

    Argh.
