WordPress 101

Are you the editor of your department or organization’s website? Are you new to making edits or just need a refresher course?

Pack a lunch and come to the WordPress 101 training session on Wednesday, June 17, at noon in the Jardine Room. We’ll go through WordPress page editing basics and answer your questions so you can feel confident in making edits to your site.

Creating Web Forms

Online forms are an incredibly useful tool that can both streamline your internal processes and create a positive user experience. Don’t send out another paper form until you come to this WordPress training session on online forms using the tool Gravity Forms. This session is only for registered users of a JCU WordPress site.

In this hour-long session we will:

  • Talk about how to create forms for applications, event registration, and surveys.
  • Show you how to embed forms into pages that already exist on your website.
  • Walk you through setting up email notifications for all of your forms.
  • Show you how to export all the information that was submitted using the form.

Pack a lunch and join us for this session on Wednesday, July 1, from noon-1 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge on the 3rd floor of Rodman Hall.

Advanced WordPress

So you have the basics down but you have specific questions or want to dig a little deeper than just the day-to-day operations of WordPress. Bring your questions and come ready to enhance your WordPress knowledge.

Pack a lunch and come to the Advanced WordPress training session on Wednesday, July 22, at noon in the Jardine Room.

Optimizing Your Site for Search Engines

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It’s the process of getting traffic from the free, organic, editorial, or natural search results on search engines. Learn more about how you can optimize your pages so that they appear at the top of a Google search page.
