I have completed the theme cutover, from Extra to Divi, both from Elegant Themes. As a part of this, I have several article series that I will begin posting today. My biggest decision is to make them posts related by a “part of a series” index, or to make them sections of pages, each new page announced by a post. Why the dilemma? In decided the method, I need to consider the way that Google and other search engines will index and relate them to one another.
There are a number of plugins available that do this. They range from just adding a shortcode to creating custom taxonomies. Most are free, but some have paid options for more features. As I was looking through them, I had a thought – why not arrange them as courses? Course topics such as:
- what tools should you use for theme development?
- what apps are necessities on your phone for
- social media?
- what WordPress site management works?
And the list goes on and on. So, what I have decided to try is Coursepress Pro from WPMU DEV. New “courses” will be announced in posts, as well as from a central resource page. I will also put together a course about setting it up!
