Section-2: Install Wordpress

We start creating our website from scratch, as this course is designed for beginners. We show you how to get a c-panel account and install your Wordpress website. We also show you how the Wordpress back-end admin panel looks like. We take you through the navigation panel and show you the pages section, posts sections and website customisation section. By the end of this course, you have a working and hosed basic - out of the box Wordpress website.

The theme we will use for our course is called Neve. We install this theme in this lecture, we show you how to find it and install it.

We use one of the FREE default pre-built blog templates in this course to show you, how you can create your website from an existing free template. We take you step-by-step in the process of looking through the available website templates and installing a template we can use for our musical blog.

In this lecture we use the Wordpress Elementor website plugin to edit the template we downloaded. I take you through the process step by step, how to edit text, images and other items that appear on the home page.

In this lecture we continue building the website front page, looking in to the concept of Search Engine Friendliness. We discuss the low-lying fruits, things you can easily edit in the website design to assist your website Search Engine score. We use the Wordpress SEO plugin - YOAST SEO to guide us in improving our SEO score and readability. I also discuss some quick tips on improving page speeds, another crucial SEO metric. When designing a website, a good designer designs for both humans and search engines - and we look at these both in parallel.

In this lecture we wrap up the series by reviewing the website we built. I add some extra tips on how to get great images for your website and compress images to use on your website.
