Get the most out of the new Twenty Fourteen magazine-style theme that ships with WordPress 3.8 with my new lynda.com course Start with a Theme: Twenty Fourteen. This new theme has a lot to offer if you know how to use it properly, and in the course I take you through all the features, functions, and weird side effects of using this theme.

From the site:

“All great WordPress sites start with a great theme. Twenty Fourteen is the default: a new, magazine-style theme with a heavy focus on images and content. In this quick course, Morten-Rand Hendriksen walks through the setup and configuration of Twenty Fourteen, and then helps you get the most out of advanced options such as the featured content grid or slider, custom menus and sidebars, and featured images.

If you’ve updated to WordPress 3.8 you have Twenty Fourteen installed already and it’s worth a good look. So go check out Start with a Theme: Twenty Fourteen and get your WordPress site started for the new year!
