WordPress Installation and Security

  • Go back to the basics and learn the best way to install WordPress along with learning some pro-tips that will make your life so much easier.
  • Learn the truth about WordPress security. We won’t be talking about that over-hyped “security through obscurity,” but actual steps you can take to make sure your site has the best possible security.


  • Dig deep into the inner-workings of WordPress themes.
  • Understand hierarchy, templates, hooks, filters and more as we build your own theme from the ground up. You’ll also learn how to build your own settings panel in a responsive theme.
  • Harness the power of iThemes Builder. You’ll gain a firm understanding on layouts, views and other structural components, plus how and why to build your own Builder extension.

SEO and Management

  • Uncover the top 10 SEO tips when working with WordPress. Learn what is true vs. “scam” SEO practices, while gaining pro-tips on how to manage your site.


  • Our updated top WordPress plugins list will be unveiled — this list covers all the must-have free and paid plugins for your WordPress site.
  • Learn how to build your own WordPress plugin to expand the functionality and capabilities of your site.

      • I’m already a member, but after I log in, I can no longer find the schedule in order to register…

        Not sure if it’s my chrome… or what, but having repeated issues, such as accessing live chat, etc.

        I can get to the schedule for this course without logging in, but then I log in, and it disappears… :(

        Can you get me there?

    • Hi Derek, the cost is $147 (with the $50 coupon above) to join WebDesign.com. The Developer Course is included with your membership. It’s an online webinar event and I’ve just updated the post with details about the time of each day’s webinar. Thanks!

  1. If you miss a particular segment due to conflicting previously scheduled events, do you get access to a replay? I’m interested in taking the course but I have previously scheduled things during two of the five sessions.

  2. Cool….. this is just what I need….I think….Two questions.

    I’m already a member, how do I sign up for this training…


    Is this OK for novice’s?

    I’m excited !!!!

    • Hey James!

      1. You can sign up for each day using the links above in the “Location” & Schedule Details section or from the WebDesign.com schedule page, here: http://training.ithemes.com/schedule

      2. We say the Developer Course is for intermediate – advanced users because it covers code-related topics/subjects (like on the Build Your Own Plugin day). But you can always listen in and make notes for things to review after the course webinar replays have been added to the library — there’s really something for everyone.

  3. Amazingly, I have commitments 4 of the 5 days of these webinars.

    Is there any benefit of doing the lessons live as opposed to watching them after the fact? Will I miss out on anything special like Q&A or anything else if I take all 5 days via delayed playback?

    Great idea. Looking forward to it.

  4. Hi,
    I have hired someone to help with my web site and would like her to have access to the course and other information as a member. What is the best way to set this up? I want the payment to go thru my account, not hers. Thanks, Meg

  5. Hi, I purchased PluginBuddy Developer Suite, that does not give me access to this training — does it… ?

    Other than the $147 price… in this email, is there other consideration for already being a client?
