    Hi, PROs.

    I am a Physician, a Medical Teacher. I have some hardware training, but no programming or coding expertise. Can I create a website with what I have?

    Regards.

    1st you need to download the wordpress http://wordpress.org/download/ then extract the content and use this site for tutorial http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    For a Physician is known to research before asking questions lol just my opinion. I am also new

    Thank you, fireshiro.

    I don't want help on installation, yet. I am just wondering if being just a physician with no coding expertise is enough to be able to use WordPress. Research hasn't answered THIS question for me. The FAQ does not cover this.

    Thanks again for your time. You have my regards.

    Yes wordpress is easy if that is what you ask, you would have to install it and try it yourself. Everyone has different point of views. Creating pages and modifying them ain't hard just understand the English part lol. And yea no problem, glad to help :) Have a nice day.
    i help when i know something, but i hate when ppl know the answer and dont post anything, cough* my post has not been answered yet.

    Operating a WordPress website is simple. If you can use e-mail and Microsoft Word, you can manage a WordPress website.

    Building a WordPress site can be simple or difficult. It depends on what you want to do. If you want to hand-craft a completely customized website with complete control over every pixel and inch of the screen, it can become quite complex. On the other hand, you can find tons of free WordPress themes that you simply "switch on" and voila! Your website has a new look!

    To operate a WordPress.org website, you basically need a web host that meets the minimum requirements (PHP, MySQL, etc.). Upload WordPress, install, and you're online.

    From there, adding content or changing the look and functionality can be as simple as pressing a button or as complex as hand-coding custom database queries. Again...it's entirely up to you.
