Welcome to the third and last video in the video series, ‘How to Create a WordPress Website from Start to Finish‘! In this week’s final video, we’ll start by briefly walking through WordPress’s interface to get familiar with where everything is for editing purposes. Next, with the help of our friends at seoai.co.uk, we’ll find, install and activate plugins to improve our theme’s SEO, limit spam, offer downloadable content, and provide related posts at the end of every post to keep your readers engaged within your site. We’ll also walk through where to find your theme’s documentation to customize your specific theme even further. By the end of the tutorial, you’ll be up and running and feel confident knowing the little details in the background will be working for you with each new post you create. Let’s get started!

If you missed video 1 or 2, here’s a little recap with links to each post:

Video 1: How to Choose the Right WordPress Website Theme – we use Themeforest to find the right theme to meet our specific needs and we explore some easy buying techniques to limit risk.

Video 2: How to Put Your WordPress Theme Online – we download our theme’s zip file from themeforest, then get a free domain and sign up for hosting with Bluehost. We install WordPress to our domain, then upload our theme within WordPress. At the end of this tutorial, you’ll be able to preview the bones of your theme on your own custom url.

  • Your are awesome. Thank you very much! Also I wonder if you will do tutorial about drop down menu bar? I bought ‘hemlock’ theme and seem having difficult to understand on how to crate drop down menu. Again thank you so much for your time and sharing your knowledge.

  • awesome post per usual! thanks!! how about image tags once we upload images for the post? Can you talk a little on that perhaps? :]

  • Thank you so much Teela!! I will definitely follow your instruction and wish me luck 🙂

  • Thank you, Teela! This has been so helpful!

  • Hi Teela!

    This series of tutorials was insanely helpful. Thank you!! I am SOOO excited to watch your other tutorials. Question- you used a blog as your example in these tutorials. What if I wanted a website that could work with ecommerce and a blog like a regular website? Would this whole process be the exact same, except with a different theme that was compatible for both? Wondering too about wordpress.org and wordpress.com. I have heard so many confusing things about this, and I couldn’t tell which you were using, and if what you were using could be used with ecommerce. Thank you in advance!! 🙂
