HTML, CSS & WordPress Masterclass 4 Days Overview

HTML & CSS Logo and masterclass course participants

This 4-day Essentials course will cover everything you need to get started with producing HTML and styling your content with CSS as well as focussing on building themes with WordPress. You will learn how web pages are structured under the hood and how you can put together your own files for the web. We will also show you how to use CSS to control every aspect of a site's visuals: its fonts, colours, leading, margins, and more. WordPress is a popular tool for creating websites and blogs so we will show you the end-to-end process for creating a fully functional, professional website and blog.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the syntax and structure of HTML pages
  • Insert tags, attributes, and values into a page
  • Define titles, headings, and page regions
  • Add links, alternate text content, and background images
  • Position and resize images and other page elements
  • Work with colours
  • Use correct styles instead of deprecated HTML tags
  • Design without relying on tables
  • Include padding, margins, borders, and backgrounds
  • Write selectors to target only specific parts of a page

  • Differentiate between external, embedded, and inline styles
  • Install and configure WordPress

  • Track visits by using the Google Analytics plug-in

Our goals are for you to understand how to create and adjust your own HTML documents and WordPress websites/blogs, and for you to understand how to enhance the visual appearance of your web pages.

This course can be taken in a single 4-day block or split into a 2-day block (HTML & CSS) and then a separate 2-day block (WordPress Masterclass) taken at a later date.
