We used the Divi theme from Elegant themes again because of its flexible layouts and endless options. We built this website in 2 hours. It is only a small website but she just needed a nice website that the could set up quickly and allowed her to grow. Instead of spending thousands on a website with a developer, she only paid for 2 hours of training. Carolyne is confident enough now to go in and finish off the rest of the website.
What we covered in the training
- Installed WordPress on her hosting.
- Installed the Divi theme.
- We gave Carolyne the DIVI theme for free.
- Created a customised home page.
- Set up all the main pages.
- Created the main navigation.
- Set up a Blog.
- Added images.
- We sourced images from pexels.com
- And reduced the image file size in reduceimages.com.
- To ensure the pages would load quickly.
- We also created some basic images in canva.com
- Canva is a free editing program.
- We installed an anti-spam plugin,
- Contact form
- And a Sitemap [a link map for the users].
We built this site in only 2 hours. Carolyne saved a lot of money and can now manage the site herself and add more content as she progresses in her business. Carolyne just wants to be able to edit and manage her website to cut back on costs and have full control over her website.
