Build a More Dynamic and Secure WordPress Website

Posted Nov 06, 2019 02:42 PM
WordPress is a popular and powerful content management system that can do much more than just create blog posts; it powers 1/3 of all websites.
And with more than 50,000 plugins available to enhance your site, the choices can be overwhelming. Its popularity also means WordPress sites are more prone to cybersecurity attacks: in 2018, WordPress accounted for 90% of all hacked CMS sites.

Plugins work like smartphone apps that expand your website's capabilities; such as making it more interactive, connecting it to Google Analytics, encouraging users to subscribe to your newsletter, and improving security features.

Learn how to supercharge your nonprofit's WordPress website at this two-hour workshop, where we’ll cover:
  • How to choose the right plugins (including recommendations for some of our trusted favorites)
  • Securing your site against malicious attacks
  • Backups and recovery
We’ll tackle these topics using live demos. Attendees are welcome to bring their laptops and follow along as we go.

Note: Nonprofits that are already using WordPress will benefit the most from this session since we will not be covering the basics of installing and configuring a brand new WordPress site. No coding experience is needed.
