Screencasts - Learning ExpressionEngine by Ryan Irelan
It's basic training for ExpressionEngine. In more than 4 hours of HD video, this 8 episode series shows how to build a website, from beginning to end, in ExpressionEngine 2. If you're new to ExpressionEngine and are looking for that 'lightbulb moment', this series is for you.
The videos are even used by EllisLab, the company behind ExpressionEngine, to train their own new employees. Read on to find out what they cover.
Follow along as we build the 'Channel University' website on ExpressionEngine 2. We'll start from the very beginning of configuring ExpressionEngine and work all the way through until we have a basic, working website. The site will have an RSS feed, search functionality, commenting, a contact form, static pages and more. This series of videos will get you up and running quickly and put you on the right path to becoming an ExpressionEngine pro.
Episode Listing
Episode 1 Configuring the Site (39 min)
In this episode we get started setting up the site in ExpressionEngine 2. We learn the basics of ExpressionEngine tags, create template groups and templates, create custom field groups and custom fields and custom statuses. We put all of this together to bring the homepage of the Channel University site to life.
Episode 2 Enabling Comments and using Embed Templates (36 min)

Episode 3 Creating and Using Categories (34 min)
In this episode we learn about using categories in ExpressionEngine 2. We create category groups and categories, use categories to display related entries and use conditionals to check whether there is any content to display.
Episode 4 Static Pages and the File Manager (40 min)
We start off by learning how to create cleaners URLs by re moving the index.php. Continuing to build out the site, we configure and use the Pages module to create static pages. We also set up the File Manager for image uploading and editing and add images to our channel entries.
Episode 5 Creating a Contact Form and RSS Feed (22 min)
To make our site easier to navigate, we light up the main navigation. We also learn how to create an RSS feed to syndicate our site content. Finally, we create a contact form using the Email module.
Episode 6 Creating Relationships Between Entries (20 min)
In this episode we learn about creating relationship between entries using the Relationship field available in ExpressionEngine. We set up a relationships field, assign related entries and then display them using the Reverse Related Entries tag pair.
Episode 7 Adding Content Outside of the Control Panel (25 min)
We learn how to use the SafeCracker module in ExpressionEngine 2 and allow registered members to submit channel entries from outside of the Control Panel. We also learn the basics of membership in ExpressionEngine 2, including the default member registration and login pages.
Episode 8 Enabling Search and Search Results (21 min)
To wrap up the series, we add search functionality to our site using the Search module in ExpressionEngine 2. We implement a Simple Search Form, search results page and an Advanced Search Form.
