I’ve returned after a long pause in studying...
I’ve come back to team treehouse after quite a long break from studying and am struggling to get back into the swing of things.
Previously I was part way through a couple of different tracks, mainly design based. I’m part way through a set of videos and questions but can’t really remember the stuff I was doing and can’t really work out where to start!
I’m looking now to understand how to manage Wordpress to a high degree of quality, speed and bug elimination.
I need to u defat and how to find and fix bugs and css changes specifically in Wordpress I guess Iain the development tools.
I also need to understand more about hosting, I have a lot of sites hosted but having recently lost the resource I use to manage everything, I want to learn how to do it myself. And quickly! Any advice on what to do would be very much appreciated.
Check this excellent CSSTricks article about all the 'technical' stuff about putting a site online. It's a good starting point.
As for the other thing, having worked (and battled) with Wordpress myself, sooner or later you NEED to learn PHP. You will come to a brick wall when you need to bypass a theme or even WP's own way of doing things.
