Learn to Create WordPress Websites
Here’s the progression:
1. WordPress Power User
A power user is simply someone who knows how to use WordPress’s existing features, including some of the less obvious ones.
What a Power User Can Do
A power user is able to do things like:
- Create new Posts and Pages, and know what each is for.
- Choose and set good permalink structures for a WordPress site.
- Browse a post’s revisions, and restore an old version.
- Install, configure, and use a plugin like Autoptimize.
Overall, a power user can run an existing WordPress website, and can even make some improvements to it.
What a Power User Can’t Do
In general, a power user can’t do two things:
- Create a WordPress website. Relative to using an existing site, setting up a site requires quite a bit more knowledge about what WordPress is and how it works.
- Anything involving code. Most power users aren’t code-literate—which is the whole goal of a CMS like WordPress.
2. WordPress Implementer (or Assembler)
A WordPress implementer (or assembler, but we’ll stick with implementer) is someone who understands WordPress quite well—possibly very well—except that he or she generally has little or no code knowledge.
What a WordPress Assembler Can Do
A WordPress assembler can put together a custom WordPress site, using existing tools like hosting installation scripts, configurable starter themes, and page builder plugins.
