Free Preview: Calypso for WordPress Site Management



Calypso is the new interface for, built from the ground up as a JavaScript single-page application and optimized for a speedy, fluid editing workflow. Calypso promises to present a modern admin front-end to the WordPress back-end we know and love. It is available by default for sites hosted on, but you can also use Calypso to manage your self-hosted WordPress site.

In this Coffee Break Course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Rachel McCollin will teach you how to use Jetpack to activate and use Calypso to manage your self-hosted WordPress site. You'll learn about all the enhancements that have been added to Calypso, how it differs from the standard admin screens, and how to use it effectively alongside this older WordPress admin interface. She also identifies those aspects of WordPress site management that Calypso doesn't handle, and recommends which types of site would and wouldn't be best suited to management with Calypso.
