March 12th Workshop

Updating the club's website

We will start this month's workshop with a demonstration of updating the club's website,  Our website has a unique and dramatic look and it works well for our members as well as for any new visitor.  It loads very quickly and ranks high in Google search results.  It's only drawback is that it was created almost 15 years ago using the FrontPage website creator and this fact makes updating the site somewhat complicated. If you are interested in how our site is updated, then this workshop is for you.


After this demo, we will continue with learning WordPress & will look at the following:

  • Inserting a gallery of images into a post
  • Adding Audio & Video files to a website
  • Adding  large documents to a website
