Section 1: Section 1: Working With Categories And Tags
I just finished Wordpress 102 and 202 in the year 2020 believe it or not. Even though this course was created in 2010, it is surprisingly still very applicable. More than 90% of it is still valid I'd say. I skipped a few lessons only because they weren't relevant anymore, but that's it.
Geoff has a nice casual style. He likes to simplify things and transmits life and enjoyment in his teaching.
I would rate this a 5 star but gave it a 4 only because it's a bit old, but it's a 5 star in its original release.

Very detailed and clear tutorial, even my grandma would be able to create a WordPress website now! The Deeper Into WordPress is still very basic.

A LOT of great info here! Really liked the info on RSS Feeds and how to make your own Widget using Dreamweaver in particular. It's one of the longer courses, but well worth the time!

All the positive things I said in my review for the "WordPress Basics" hold true for this. This tutorial course starts precisely where the Basics course left off and continues in more depth. Easy to follow and informative. I am now pretty confidant that I will be blogging very shortly indeed!

Another great Wordpress tutorial from Geoff! I've already designed and launched a fully functional wordpress site based on what I've learned from these tutorials. I barely understood what Wordpress was when I started but now I feel like a true nerd of the Wordpress community :)
I like Geoff's excitement and knowledge. MPV has made a great decision to incorporate these tutorials into their catalog. Keep 'em coming!!
