On Tuesday, December 13, 2016, James Hartmann from Hewlett-Woodmere Public Library and James McHugh from Nassau Library System provided an in-dept and energetic look into the workings of WordPress in their presentation, “WordPress & Web Design Crash Course: How To Build Dynamic Library Websites For Desktop & Mobile Patrons.”
During this engaging and informative session, the presenters covered a variety of topics including a quick introduction to how WordPress works, which was followed by a number of case studies, including the website redesigns at the Hewlett-Woodmere Public Library, West Hempstead Public Library, and the Wantagh Public Library. They covered the many graphical & coding tools that can help you build an amazing, mobile-friendly website with WordPress and concluded the presentation will a number of useful plugins for WordPress, most of which are free of charge.
