WordPress

 

WordPressLike every other post I make, this one (about the WordPress) I also write on my experience for which (as a complete newbie) I thank the Wealthy Affiliate.

A few years ago I heard for the WordPress and had opened an account, but I never gave myself a chance to figure it out. Now I know that it is the best tool for managing blogs and websites. And it is so simple when you have great teachers around.

It is a tool that we use for making websites and building an online business within the Wealthy Affiliate platform. 

 

 

Let’s see what’s inside of this great feature


Dashboard – a back office WordPress
Once when you log into your account, you will open a door of your back office. From here you will manage everything from technical to the creative side of your website/blog.

 

Themes WordPress Themes
There are over 2000 different WP themes in a store, which present a layout of your blog. You can always switch from one to another until you find the one that fits your needs. Each time I start with a new website I change the theme until I find some that perfectly fits my idea. For me, it is imperative that I love it! Of course, there are many options within each of them.

Plugins
They are small code programs that improve the functionality of your website. They can help you both in the technical part of your work and artistic side of your soul 🙂  Some of them are required (those are pre-installed by Wealthy Affiliate team), and some of them are there just if you want them to improve your work.

HTML
Even though there is a bunch of plugins to be used for free, it’s not recommended to have hundreds of plugins installed. That’s why HTML as a computer language is an awesome tool to be used within a WordPress. It’s very simple although it looks scary at the first site.

Media system
Besides typing text, a WP supports images and videos and audio which make it beautiful and open for creation.

Users
A manager of the site is by default an admin, but you can add other users as well:

  • Subscriber – an audience
  • Contributor
  • Author
  • Editor
  • Administrator – a partner

By now I’ve learned how and when to assign these two roles (Subscriber and Administrator) to other people visiting my sites. As you know, I am still learning, and I believe I will make an update on this topic very soon 🙂

Pages and Posts
Pages are the basic structure of the site. You can find them within the site’s menus.
Posts are an update of the blog from day to day.
I use them like this:
For example, this content that you are reading now named ”WordPress” is written as a page. I consider it as an announcement for the future posts related to it (“Using HTML in WP,” “What is the WP dashboard” etc.) which appear on my landing (main/home) page when you open my site. Some people call that BLOG.

Comments
One more excellent feature which allows interaction between site’s creator and an audience

WordPress

 


As you can see, WordPress is a great tool for building an online business. Some people use it just for fun, for sharing some ideas, life experience.

Whatever you use it for, it’s very straightforward and easy to navigate. Especially if you host your site here at the Wealthy Affiliate which you can do for free both as a starter member (2 free websites) and a premium member (up to 50 on your domain, and 20 on siterubix.com domain). 

The best of all is that Kyle and Carson (co-founders and owners of the WA) do all the hard work related to hosting and site’s protection.

Your job is just to KEEP SWIMMING in your creativity and imagination 🙂

    Hi Sunny,
    WordPress are such great websites to build, there are literally thousands of templates to choose from. It’s just a case of choosing which style you like the look of best and which will enhance your niche to it’s full potential.

    I like the plugin you have in your sidebar, what a great tool for checking who’s visiting your website.
    What’s that plugin called, I’ll have to check that out?

    What surprised me is how easy WordPress websites are to build, there’s hardly any technical knowledge required. Great for a newbie like myself.

    Keep up your good work and thanks again,
    Simon.

      There are 2 plugins ”Flag counter” and ”Live traffic feed”.
      They are great!!! I am checking them all day today lol

      WordPress is amazing! So easy – of course thanks to the training here at the Wealthy Affiliate.
      I would probably need more time if I was studying by myself.
      But still using the WordPress is much easier than other software.

      Thanks again for stopping by.

      I love using WordPress, it’s the easiest platform for blogs and for shop owners too who want to sell things. WordPress is very flexible and very easy to use. I really like the back interface to work on your blog, navigation is easy and millions of blogs are using it. 🙂

      Can’t go wrong with that many people! haha As well, Wealthy Affiliate helps you learn too if you’re really new to it. They have an extensive training program that takes you step by step to build your website to make money! It’s awesome!

      Love it!

        I am not sure that without them I would be able to run even a simple WordPress blog since I was a complete newbie when I started here.
        They are awesome! And you are awesome for sharing your experience!
        Thanks 🙂

        WordPress is on about 25% of the websites on the internet.

        That’s a MASSIVE number and nothing else is as big.

        I like it because it’s simple to use, mostly drag and drop and you don’t have to know coding to use it.

        Of course, if you can do coding, it is possible to implement tweaks to your site with that coding ability.

        Best of Both worlds, is WordPress, good for beginners or coders who love html, css, etc

        • Sunny says:

          I am not sure I know what’s CSS yet lol
          You are on an advanced level obviously 🙂
          Thanks for this information about WordPress, it’s good to know.

          I noticed James comment and I just had to add that
          Wordpress seems to be the most preferred site builder by Google, as well, another good reason to use it.

          Apart from all the easy accessible functions and all you can do with those sites, they are absolutely worth it, especially in combination with the Wealthy Affiliate. More thorough training on how to make your online business a fun game doesn’t exist.

          Thanks for another great article, Sunny 🙂
