Build a Wordpress Website
It's true. Our Beyond the Basics course now includes WordPress tutorials.
"Rich - say it isn't so!"
Look, I've always liked WordPress, but I went with Joomla because out of the box, it provides more flexibility. However this added flexibility comes at the cost of a steeper learning curve. For some people that cost is too high and they abandon their Joomla journey. So although I remain an advocate for Joomla, at the end of the day all I want to do is help people get a website online fast and if that means using a different tool that I still like, then my outcome has been achieved.
So if you've been wondering which software is best for your website, or you simply want to learn both platforms, I have great news. Our Beyond the Basics members now get the best of both worlds. In addition to getting access to our library of 150+ Joomla tutorials, members now have access to 20 WordPress tutorials. These lessons take you through the essentials of installing and building a WordPress-powered website.

We're moving to a subscription model - act now to lock in for life
Not a member yet? There has never been a better time to join.
Right now Beyond the Basics is a single payment which includes lifetime access, lifetime updates, lifetime support and a lifetime guarantee. We're looking to change this to a yearly subscription model. So instead of charging $97 for life, it would become $97 a year.
So if you're not yet a member, I suggest jumping in now while the lifetime offer is still available. Beyond the Basics recently changed and now includes all of our Joomla tutorials in one complete package. And now WordPress tutorials too. Act right now and you'll still get lifetime access, lifetime updates, lifetime support and a lifetime guarantee. There has never been a better time to learn how to build, maintain and grow a Joomla (or WordPress) website.
