This website is built using the software WordPress. WordPress is a ‘content management system’ (CMS) – which means it gives you the power to edit and manage the content. You can register, log in, and then add events, news, pages and photographs. Just like you do on a Facebook page! Just like Facebook – they page styles and templates are all set up, and all you need to do it add your photos and text. And because millions of people use WordPress to build websites, its easy to find a friend or a video on YouTube to show you how its done – you can be up-and-running within minutes. Why no give it a go?
On Saturday 7th June, 2pm-5pm the Lambeth Network will be running a free course on WordPress – from setting editing pages or adding new posts to existing websites, or setting up your own professional website from scratch. Registration for the course will open in May. Visit the www.lambeth.network website then for more details.
