Create a website using WordPress (Step by Step)
Hey, what’s up everyone on this Blog. I’m going to show you how to build a WordPress website using Bluehost so this is a complete step-by-step tutorial. if you’re a beginner and you’ve never built a website this blog is for you.
So the first thing you’ll need to do is you’ll need to sign up for Bluehost you can do this by clicking the link that’ll take you right to this website and you’ll click get started now so you’ll choose your plan for just $2.95 a month you can host one website or for $5.45 a month you can host unlimited websites so once you select your plan.
Choose a Domain
you’re done with all of that go ahead and click next notice at the top it says WordPress is installing once it says installation complete click view your credentials here. so at this point, you should see your username and password displayed as well as the domain you just installed WordPress to go ahead and click on the domain that should take you to your WordPress login go ahead and enter the username and password you just created and click login.
I have so far now I haven’t actually done anything the reason it is already content here is that this content is part of the theme so the theme is what basically controls the design aspects of your website. so if we click on the site title again it should take us back to the dashboard and we’re going to talk about themes for a second you change your theme by going to appearance and then themes so as you can see I currently have the 2017 theme installed.
we’ll notice that it is a completely different design and that’s because we change the theme so before I talk about adding blog posts and pages and menus and things like that let’s get familiar with the customize panel you click on customize right here or if you are back in your dashboard you can find customize by going to appearance and customize that way so the first tab here tells us.
which theme we have installed and allows us to change it right here in the customize panel the next tab is the site identity. if you click on that will give you the site title and a tagline so notice my site title is nomadic household and the tagline underneath.
let’s try changing the header text color which is currently white I’ll set it to red so there it is it changed that quickly all you have to do is click Save and publish and it’s final and you can always go and hit clear and it will put it back to the default settings so if we look again at the colors there was background color.
if we change that it changes the white background there to red or blue or green or whatever we want and if we want to put it back to white we can simply click on default and click Save and publish so again.
we get any further in it I want to show you how to create custom pages and blog posts, so let’s exit out of the customize panel and go back into our dashboard. we’ll start by creating a blog post to do this you’ll go to post right here and you’ll click add new to create a new one or you can find posts. you’ve already created right here so let’s click add new and this is where you’ll enter the title of your post.
Setting up URL
we could go back to our dashboard but since we’ve already got the panel here we’ll just click on pages that are created the same exact way click add new to add the title of your page add the text media you’d like to add and click publish. so if we go back to pages we’ll notice there is the sample page and the page we just created. so now that we have at least two pages let’s talk about menus if we go back and look at our website this page has already been added to the menu but we can customize this we can take pages out add pages in and organize them exactly.
If we wanted to remove the sample page from showing up we can simply go to remove here and click Save now if you wanted to add a home page because your home page isn’t an actual page. what you’ll do is you’ll go to the custom link you’ll add your URL choose the text that you want the menu to display.
