    I watched this as I use a WP.org website and the videos WP puts out are not always easy to understand. This was great for lay people to get better idea of how to use.

    I loved An Introduction to Using WordPress to Build a Blog or Website! Elizabeth is an excellent speaker and teacher. I learned so very much and will return to this webinar to use it side-by-side to set up my WordPress website. The syllabus is excellent! And it has a footer with the title and page numbers! I have nightmares about my binder breaking open and unidentified pages going everywhere. Elizabeth Swanay O’Neal gets an A+++!

    Great overview of the Word Press topic. I would have liked to hear more about how to apply Word Press to the subject of genealogy. For example, strategies for blogging about family units and displaying family trees graphically. There are some plugins for family trees, but I have not found one yet that is useable (easy to set up, that displays readable charts, and that allows links from individuals in the charts to a specific blog page for more detailed information),

    This is a very well explained intro to WordPress that demystifies the process for newcomers.

    This webinar really did help me to understand many of my missing details… I have a website, nad have not had the confidence to even choose a theme; it’s all quite overwhelming to the technically challenged! I appreciated the visuals and simple explainations. I will probably waatch it a few more times to digest a bit more….but the time spent is truly well worth it! Thank you!

    Very informative and interesting. I’ve used wordpress a little off and on, but am still learning most areas. Good to know I was doing some things right and how to do other things. Thank you Legacy.

    Excellent overview. Made WordPress appear much easier to use than I had previously thought.
