Learn WordPress through WordPress lessons
WordPress itself also offers a series of lessons in video form that you can use to learn more about WordPress itself and how it works. These lessons are freely available on the WordPress.org website, but can also be viewed on WordPress.tv.
WordPress.tv also often saves meetups and other webinars so you can watch them after the fact. So you can access a large library of interesting talks here. For example, you can watch an introduction to working with the new block editor here, for those who are still struggling with it. Or how to extend and install plugins and themes.
WordPress days and meetings
WordPress itself also often offers a day or meeting near you, which you can attend for free in most cases. There is often a talk or lesson first and then an open Q&A session where you can ask your questions. At these evenings, you can also make contacts with other freelancers, companies or hobbyists. And you can work together on a project, for example.
Once your website is online and you have some content on it, you can think about dropping by. As a complete newbie, it might not be quite appropriate to sit down on a Son night, but if you have any doubts, you can always contact the organizer.
Free lessons on YouTube
Of course, there is also a large collection of free videos on YouTube that you can watch to learn how to work with WordPress. Just search for WordPress and what you want to accomplish, and chances are you'll find someone who has already created a comprehensive tutorial on it. In fact, WordPress is so big and well-known that websites, businesses, and content creators have created content for the system themselves. This often leads to a paid course or service, but may also use ads and affiliate links to make the video worth his or her while. After all, nothing comes for free.
In addition, there are paid and free courses and tutorials on the Internet, a popular website for example is wpbeginner.com, which has created a large collection of blog posts on the subject. This ranges from a specific error message you may receive. To a general guide on how to upload an image.
Third-party courses that are initially offered for free and then charged for always require some homework to determine if they are worthwhile. So look for reviews and experiences with a course before requesting the free PDF, for example. Your email address can then be used for marketing purposes.
