What we covered in the training

  • Installed and set up WordPress.
  • Installed a premium WordPress theme called Divi.
  • We give you DIVI for FREE with the course.
  • Anna already had a vision of what design she wanted.

In the first session;

  • We set up the home page, about, contact and blog.
  • Anna sources her own images.
  • We used to reduce the file size of the images.
  • Anna learnt how to use the Divi builder, which allows you to control the layout of each page.
  • So you can customise each page to whatever you like.
  • We had the site live after the second session.
  • We added some “must have” plugins including;
    • Security – to keep the site safe from hackers.
    • Anti-spam – to ensure no bad comments.
  • In session two, we fine-tuned the website.
  • Added Social Media.
  • Anna then learnt how to use the Yoast SEO plugin.
  • The Yoast plugin gives you a guide on how to set up your site for Google.
  • SEO  – search engine optimisation is an important part of building a website.
  • We can help you do SEO in this course – SEO Training
  • Anna also learnt how to keep the site up to date, i.e. plugins, the theme and WordPress.
  • Which is very important to keep everything working properly.
  • I’m very proud of Anna’s site, it looks amazing!!
