Ten Ton WordPress Essentials Training DVD

The DVD provides more than eight hours of training on the fundamentals of creating, launching and maintaining a WordPress site.

Artist and designer Geoff Blake is also involved in video training, notably providing segments on web design and PDF creation for the Mediabistro On Demand video training library, as well as earlier titles on Dreamweaver and Photoshop. Now those getting started with WordPress can benefit from Geoff's years of experience to master the essentials of one the most popular site construction packages, via a DVD that goes beyond just covering the basics to providing useful hands-on tasks and techniques in the course of 80 lessons.

Lessons include getting WordPress installed both locally on a Mac or PC, or on a live web server, and how to work with the various features of the WordPress blogging platform, including pages, posts, custom sidebars, blogrolls and categories. Advanced topics include multimedia, creating posts with Dreamweaver, customizing Permalinks, and adding additional users. Finally, users are shown how to make their blog their own with widgets, plugins and themes.

The Mac/Windows DVD is available for purchase for $99 on the Ten Ton site.
