How to Build a Website With WordPress
Building a WordPress blog has been a lot of fun for me. It is a good idea to have a few tricks up your sleeve so that you can quickly build a WordPress blog in minutes. Do not use the same mistakes I made though. Keep reading.
Choosing a web host: Since you will be doing most of the content management, you need to know if you need to use one or two. One is usually more expensive and has more options and features, but it is important to do some comparison and make sure that you get the best. Once you decide on which hosting service you would like to use, you can go ahead and get your domain name ready.
Choosing the right hosting service: Most hosting companies offer two kinds of plans. One is free with a limited amount of space and the other is basic with unlimited space and domains. The most popular is the free plan and it has some limitations.
Adding content: When you have decided on how to build a website, you are probably looking for some tips for making a complete new blog or a conversion blog. If you are going to go this route, it is a good idea to know how to add content and create a widget that shows a short description of the post and also what the post is about. You can create posts using the widgets available at the WordPress site.
Setting up your settings: If you want to add ads, plugins, pictures, videos, you can do that using the settings area of your hosting site. Just make sure that you don’t go over the limits of your bandwidth. If you need to edit these settings, you can use the ‘advanced’ option.
Editing themes: Now that you have your content created, editing themes and images are easy. Many hosting sites have a web page to help you customize the appearance of your website. Just click the ‘theme’ tab in the upper right corner of your screen.
Your domain name: The domain name is the address that you will see on the top of your website. It is important to choose a name that is unique and easy to remember.
Forums: If you have some links, you can add them to your forums by using forums. The hosting service will provide you with a set of forums for free. Just go to the main link and go to the ‘options’ section.
Creating different sections: You can use various types of software to create your blogs. One of the good ones is Markdown editor, which can make your job much easier. Another option is Dokuwiki, which is a very easy to use community-driven template that you can upload into your WordPress site.
Embedding codes: You can use some of the many plug-ins available for your WordPress site to add those in post titles, footers, and even embedded codes in the site. Some examples are Squidoo, Script Buddy, or NoScript. You can use these tools to add extra functionality to your blog.
It is possible to have your own blog. By following a few simple steps, you can have a fully functional blog up and running in just a few minutes. But before you start building, you should read the guide written by Mr. X (me) above.
