What you'll learn

Module 1 - WordPress inside and out

A comprehensive guide to the WordPress ecosystem and where it floats in the online soup. What are the technologies that run WordPress and how do they work together? How is WordPress structured and how does it recreate your website over and over again. Plus my special backend tour including cool shortcuts and options you might not have discovered yet…

Module 2 - WordPress hygiene

My special routine for regular WordPress care to keep your site clean and healthy from day to day. Why you need to update, how to update safely and how to save yourself if it all goes wrong. Plus loads of my most useful tips on WordPress hygiene to keep your site running smooth and clean.

Module 3 - WordPress stress management

The formula I use to diagnose (and usually fix) all kinds of problems on all kinds of WordPress sites. How to save yourself if it all goes wrong, and lots of ways to help you take the stress away

Module 4 - Keep WordPress secure

WordPress’s popularity is one of its greatest strengths, but can also be its downfall. Batten down the security hatches to keep those nasty hackers and bots at bay.

Module 5 - Make WordPress accessible and easy to visit -  for people and for (good) bots

How to test, monitor and improve the speed of your site. Get the structure and performance perfect for search engines. Make it a joy to visit and accessible to all your customers

Module 6 - A little bit of code… and how to use it.

I’ve left this one till last in case it sounds scary, but knowing a little bit of the code that runs WordPress can help you to enter ‘God mode’ when you’re making changes to a site or troubleshooting problems. I promise you, one minute it looks like gobbledygook, the next, you’re flying.

And I will never, ever, under any circumstances (and I swear this, in all seriousness, on my most treasured posession (a beautiful, shiny Brandoni piano accordion...) ) EVER sell (or give) your details to anyone else.

Not even if they get down on their knees and offer to eat my nurse's hat
