I am interested in making an aggregate site like this: http://rushter.com/dsreader/
The list of https://github.com/rushter/data-science-blogs

Will I gather enough skill to make an aggregate website after learning Intermediate Front End Development?
How many courses in freeCodeCamp do I need to take to have enough skills to build an aggregate site?

Aggregate sites are ridiculously simple, but it’s mostly back end work. If you complete all of the certificates, you’ll have a good enough understanding to make one.

This seems like it might be a good place to start: https://github.com/danmactough/node-feedparser

Couple hours every night for a week at most, if you’re totally new to WordPress. XD

Zero.

You don’t need any web courses, just start doing it. It fill be hard, yep.

But I’d suggest to complete Basic Frontend & Backend to make your life easier.

I tried this plugin several years. It was hard to customize with my limited knowledge of PHP. Now they have paid version. https://www.wprssaggregator.com/extension/simple-feeds-bundle/

Single Site – $150.00
Up to Five Sites – $300.00
Up to Twenty Sites – $600.00

Very expensive.
That is the reason I quit WordPress. It is very pricey and hard to customize.

All certificates? Too many :sob:


#8

I did not have knowledge about web development in the past but I still did not know how to do it. The level of difficulty is too high.

The beauty of WordPress is you don’t need to code, at all. You should have a lot of free, easy to run, maybe bare bone, yet totally functional plugin options out there since it’s a relatively easy and old tech (RSS). You just have to give it try. Using WordPress is like click, click, click, click and oh it’s done! Good luck.

Google.com for any unclear things. Courses + making project in parallel - best recipe for success.

Click and it’s gone - only shit in output. Without coding you can create only shitty blog which will be looks like the same billion blogs and user will hate your website even not start reading your content.

Wordpress is many things, but beautiful it isn’t.

Unfortunately, @huyingjie, you can’t make websites without knowing how to make websites. Hard things are hard, I’m afraid.
