Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
What is WordPress?
WordPress started in 2003 as an online, open source
website creation tool built on PHP and MySQL and
licensed under the GPLv2.
But in non-geek speak, it's probably the easiest and most
powerful blogging and website content management
system (or CMS) in existence today.
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
What does GPLv2 mean?
The General Public License is a free, copyleft
license for software and other kinds of works.
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute
verbatim copies of this license document, but
changing it is not allowed.
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
What is a CMS?
A content management system (CMS) is a
computer application that allows publishing,
editing, modifying, organising, deleting, and
maintaining content from a central interface. Such
systems of content management provide
procedures to manage workflow in a collaborative
environment.

Themes
A WordPress theme is a set of files that determine the look and feel of your
WordPress-powered website. WordPress Themes create the general layout
of the site pages and different widgets (plugins) you can use. This means that
they contain page content such as graphics, headers, logos and footers.
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Plugins
A plug-in is a small program, or combination of programs, that allow your
website to have more features.
For example, If you want to convert your WordPress site to eCommerce shop,
there’s a plugin available for that WooCommerce.
Installing WooCommerce plugin will convert your WordPress site to
eCommerce Store.
AND YES ITS FREE!!
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Framework
A framework is a set of code that provides the backbone
of a Theme. It is a flexible foundation that is created to
speed up design.
Using the car analogy, a WordPress framework would be
like the internal structure or frame of a car. You don’t
see it, but it creates the overall structure, shape and
form of a vehicle.
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
WordPress Settings
This Settings General Screen is the default Screen in the
Settings Administration Screen and controls some of the
most basic configuration settings for your site: your site's
title and location, who may register an account at your
site, and how dates and times are calculated and
displayed.
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
WordPress Menus
With WordPress, you can easily create a custom menu,
which usually serves as a navigation menu for your site.
The built-in WordPress Menu feature allows you to
create your own custom menus in place of your theme’s
default menus.

WordPress Widgets
A WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a
specific function. You can add these widgets in sidebars
also known as widget-ready areas on your web page.

Categories
Categories provide a helpful way to group related posts together, and
to quickly tell readers what a post is about.
Categories are a way to group Posts
(remember the difference between Posts and Pages right?)
For instance ‘News’ or ‘Events’ might be a category.
By default, WordPress will put Posts into the ‘Uncategorized’ category
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Tags
Tags provide a useful way to group related posts together and to
quickly tell readers what a post is about.
Words to describe your content.
Used by Search engines for Indexing.
Can be used to generate ‘tag cloud’ - which is an alternative method
to allow users to navigate through your site.

Comments in WordPress
Comments allow your website's visitors to have a discussion with you
and each other. When you activate comments on a Page or post,
WordPress inserts several text boxes after your content where users
can submit their comments. Once you approve a comment, it appears
underneath your content.
You can enable/disable comments on posts or page.
You can see comments in WP-ADMIN in a queue, where you can
approve, unapprove, reply, mark as spam to comments

Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
So what can you do with WordPress in your
career path?
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
LOTS OF THINGS!!
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Web development and design and
freelancing
There are lots and lots of opportunities to be a freelancer developing and designing
WordPress sites. The jobs in this area abound. Where can you find them? Here are a few
places:
WordPress job board – posting specifically WordPress-related jobs with a myriad of
specialties under that umbrella.
Craigslist – you’ll need to find your own city’s job classifieds area and search using
“WordPress.” Not hard.
LinkedIn – type in “WordPress” as the keyword and your city of preference, and it will give
you your options!
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Get a job as a WordPress developer or
content creator
You can get a job as a WordPress developer in big corporations (Time
Magazine, Washington Post, UBC) and development houses that
specialize in WordPress (10up) as well as other places. However for all
these jobs WordPress is just part of the skill set required. At this level
you are really a web developer that happens to also know WordPress.
If you want to build a career as a web developer specializing in
WordPress then you can make a career in a larger organization, agency,
or company.
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Work on WordPress itself
Yes, WordPress has a company behind it. It’s called
“Automattic" and they look for great talent. They also
offer a lot of benefits. Word of the wise here: if you
want to work for “Automattic" be ready to show your
altruistic contribution to the WordPress community in a
significant way.
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
Teach WordPress
You’d be surprised how many people are eager to learn
how to use WordPress. Since many companies are now
using it for their websites, and new startups are finding
it to be their platform of choice when creating a
website, the need to ‘learn the ropes’ is a huge
opportunity as a career path in itself. In fact, one guy
even bartered his WordPress teaching skills for guitar
strings!
Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
WordPress is changing our job market?
Was that a big statement to make? Maybe, but I think
it’s true, and my own story is a testament of that. When
I talk to others in this industry, I find that my story is not
unique.

Craigslist – you’ll need to find your own city’s job classifieds area and search using “WordPress.” Not hard. LinkedIn – type in “WordPress” as the keyword and your city of preference, and it will give you your options! Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane

  • 63. WordPress is changing our job market? Was that a big statement to make? Maybe, but I think it’s true, and my own story is a testament of that. When I talk to others in this industry, I find that my story is not unique. Introduction to WordPress Harshad Mane
