People often say that it’s never too late to study. This expression works great with the web-development in particular. I have a lot of friends who started to develop websites just by taking as weekly online courses and dedicating themselves to this purpose for some time.

That’s why we have created a huge catalog of templates that you can build a website with! It doesn’t matter whether you are building it on WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. We have plenty of top quality website templates here and everyone will find something to fit his or her needs.
However, while sitting and drinking coffee at lunch a few days ago we discussed the fact that we also want our customers to know where they can learn how to work with WordPress in particular, for example. So that’s why today I’m proud to show you this WordPress 101 article. It’s gonna be your guide in the dark woods of the courses websites.
