Video Course Learning ExpressionEngine
It's basic training for ExpressionEngine. In more than 2 ½ hours of HD video, this 7 part course shows how to build a website, from beginning to end, in ExpressionEngine. If you're new to ExpressionEngine and are looking for that "lightbulb moment," this series is for you.
Completely redone course now covers ExpressionEngine 2.8+
Follow along as we build the “Channel University” website on ExpressionEngine. We’ll start from the very beginning by installing ExpressionEngine and then configure our site, working all the way through until we have a basic, working website.
This course will get you up and running quickly–including how to install ExpressionEngine–and put you on the right path to becoming an ExpressionEngine pro.
Part 1: Introduction and What We’re Building
We kick off the course with a short introduction to the course by your instructor. After that we’ll review the site we’ll build during the course.
Part 2: Installing ExpressionEngine
Before we can start building any ExpressionEngine site we need to first install the CMS. We’ll walk through all of the steps of installing ExpressionEngine.
Part 3: Configuring the Site
With ExpressionEngine installed, we start to configure the site in the ExpressionEngine control panel. We add channels, field groups and fields, and statuses, and more. We wrap up by writing some code to start building out the Channel University homepage.
Part 4: Templates and Template Layouts
Digging much deeper into templates, we’ll build out the majority of our templates, and learn the powerful layout and embed features. Layouts and embeds make it easy to reuse template code across the entire site.
Part 5: Creating and Using Categories
All content must be categorized! We will cover how categories work in ExpressionEngine and set up related entries using the Related Categories Mode.
Part 6: Static Pages with the Pages Module; the File Manager
We’ll address the needs for one-off pages, like About, and how we can manage images uploads and manipulations or our news articles.
Part 7: Creating Relationships Between Entries
Finally, we’ll wrap up our site by exploring the relationships field (including the new multi-relationship field) and by looking at some homework for you to do on your own.
