When you’re setting up a WordPress-powered website for a client, you should customize the backend of WordPress to be user-friendly. If you don’t, you’ll be setting your clients up for failure and enabling them to mess up the site. So make things easy on yourself and easy on your client—customize the backend.
“Preparing a Site for the Client” is an 80-minute webinar that will show you how to customize the backend of WordPress and make it user-friendly (dare we say fool-proof?) for your clients.
