Wordpress Complete Set Up Guide
Hey! What's up guys!
In this guide I'm going to show you how to set up your WordPress website. I'm hoping this will be a one stop guide for setting up your new website. Whether you're a complete newbie, or a WordPress veteran, I'm hoping this will help you remember the basic steps
I'm going to assume you have already purchased your domain name, set up the Domain NameServers (DNS) pointing towards your host and have WordPress installed on your website. If you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate, you can install WordPress easily by using WordPress Express.
We are going to start with a blank website.
We are going to go over the basic structure of setting up a new website. This will include setting up a few pages:
- Home Page
- Contact Me
- About Me
Also, we'll go over some of the essential plugins needed for a new website, and we'll go over how to set them up. These will include:
- All in One SEO Pack
- Google XML Sitemaps
- WordPress Ping Optimizer
- Contact Buddy
Save you from looking up different guides for each, you'll be able to select which guide you want from the page selection section at the top.
Pleased don't be alarmed by that disclaimer. That's just there so IF a fault should occur, you can't go blaming me. If something does go wrong, it's always fixable and at this stage of site creation/development, not the end of the world.
So, without further ado... LET'S GET STARTED!
