He was up guys. This is Nair shake from blog.com and in this video I’m gonna show you how to create a beautiful and professional blog so let’s first see the demo website which we have already created.
So as you can see this is the demo website which we’ll be creating in this video at the top we have a low bow I’ll show you how to create this logo without using any professional softwares like Photoshop or anything like that. I’ll also show you how to you know put this favicon up there then we’ll create these different menus about us contact us page then at the home page as you can see there are different blocks at the left hand side and the right sidebar we have some recent post with thumbnails then we have categories then a facebook like page and then social icons.
Now let’s see how a post looks like so just click on the post okay so the post is obviously the most important thing in any blog because this is the main data this is the main thing you’re publishing at the top as you can see this is a title then some text then I’ll show you how to put this image then this image also then I’ll also show you how to put this block code these bullet points and I’ll also show you how to put this color to different font and then we’ll see how to put a permalink to or our custom link to any text or any image so let’s see how a category looks like for example when we click on make money online this is a category I have created so as you can see different blocks that depend or that belong to one particular category will show up.
So let’s see the about Us page now oh yes so this is our about Us page as you can see I have put some color to the title and to this thing also and then at the left side we have some text and at the right side we have a image I will show you how to do all these things so this is really simple and profession now let’s see our Contact Us page hey guys so this is our Contact Us page at the left side there is a simple and a very nice-looking contact form at the right side we have some text the get in touch message text then mean we have used some beautiful icons for the address phone and email then we have business arts obviously you can edit everything you want in this column but I just created this thing.
So I’ll show you how to create this thing and edit this thing oh you guys so this was our demo and also remember the website which will be creating 100% mobile friendly what I mean by that is it adjust to your mobile automatically you don’t have to scroll right and left to you know just to view that thing it is mobile friendly when you leave this thing in mobile as you can see the menu shifts over you’re the three lines when you click on that this is your menu all the images and the text automatically converts according to the resolution of the device you’re using so this is a mobile friendly website this is SEO friendly and we’ll be using WordPress which is the most easiest way to create a website so let’s get started oh yes so to create a website we need a hosting plan and a domain name for both hosting and domain.
I prefer the hostgator.com so you’ll find a link in the video description below which will redirect you to this particular page where you can select among the three different plans this is the hatchling plan a baby plan and a business plan basically we are going with the baby plan because it has got unlimited domains where as in hatchling plan you can only register one domain with the hosting account so select the baby plan and click on sign up now okay at the top we have to enter our domain name if you already own a domain name then click on this I already own this domain and put in your domain and so because I already own the domain name and putting my domain name over here blog.com then as you can see we have already selected the we plan now you have to select the billing cycle 36 month or whatever you want I personally prefer to go with 12 months so click on 12 month and select any username of your choice it can be anything you want and a security pin your security pin must be 4 to 8 character long may only contain numbers.
Now if you’re putting all your information your billing information your email address first name last name company name whatever it is if you want to pay with PayPal go with PayPal or you can pay with a credit card or a debit card put in the information of your credit card or debit card or you then scroll down and untick all this thing because we don’t need this thing and suppose you want or you need these things in future you can obviously buy this thing or purchase these things later on so we don’t need now so for now we don’t need all these things here we have a coupon code at present we are getting a 40% discount so if you’re getting a 40 50 percent discount a 60% discount you don’t need to put my coupon code just click on the link in the video description below to Hostgator and your work will be done here we have enter a coupon code so just go there delete this thing inputting web dude 45 and click on validate as you can see when you put in web dude 45 you are getting a 45 percent discount which is a great discount so after you are completed filling all the fields just stick on I have read and agree to the terms and conditions and click on checkout now so once you click on checkout.
You’ll receive email on your registered email address just open this thing and here you will find all the important things which are needed for the website for example your plan which plan your control panel link your user name domain password name service make sure you see this information somewhere because this is very important so first what you have to do is just click on the control panel link and open this in a new tab and now put in your user name and password and click on login so once you have click on login this is the cPanel this is your control panel from where you will be controlling your website so at the top as you can see it is what press installer just click on that because we want to install WordPress on our domain name oh yes so once you get this window select your domain name from your the domain name on which you want to install WordPress so my domain name is is is this one and make sure you leave this directory empty click on next now put in any block title you want for example I’m putting create website with new year admin user should be in a year first name in a year last name shake select your admin email make sure the add me email you’re selecting is active and you have access to that email address because all the information the important information like the password the user name you’ll be getting on this particular email okay so once you have done that just tick the terms and services agreement and click on Install Now.
Oh you guys so as you can see it says installation is completed or you’re getting the installer to domain username and password so just click on this link and open this link in a new tab it shows a 4:04 page not found don’t worry this is really common because the wordpress is not yet been installed on this domain so it takes some time around 4 to 5 minutes so just keep on refreshing giving page once you get it will continue oh yes so now our WordPress has been installed on our dough so what you do is just click on your and after your domain put in slash forward slash WP dash admin and press enter so once you do that just copy your username from here and paste it over here similarly copy and paste your password from here and paste it over here and click on login ok so once you’re logged in this is how your dashboard looks like and the first thing would and the first thing what we are going to do is change our password so for that this however here which is how denied it will say your name how do you whatever your name is and click on edit my profile and at the bottom here you will see new password click on generate password it will generate a new password for you but we want our own custom password so we delete this thing as it is very tricky for us very difficult for us to remember and put in our own password.
Ok it says it’s a weak password click on confirm use of weak password and update your profile now what we have to do is change some general settings so clear at the left side you’ll see different menus over there you’ll see something called setting menu how our setting and you will see different options now click on general options now as you can see this is a site title and a tagline make sure you put in site title and tagline according to your website that befits your website for example when you see my website the site title is block dude and a tagline is a guide for all the bloggers when you however my website at the top as you can see you can see the site title and the tagline so you can also put in site title and tagline that befits your website so let’s put in something so for site title I’m putting blog dude and for tagline create a blog okay so this is what we have to do over here and click on Save Changes now again come to settings and under settings you’ll see something called permalinks just click on that and we have to select this post name permalink because this is the most SEO friendly because see we want our blog to be shown and to be indexed on Google which is the most important thing I guess so make sure you select the post name and click on Save Changes it says your site is currently displaying a coming soon page once you are ready to launch your site click here so because we are creating a demo I am creating our tutorial so I will always need to check the web site for the changes so I’m clicking over here to make my site life okay so once you have installed the WordPress let’s see how our website looks like now.
So how are you and open this page in a new tab oh hey guys so this is how our website looks like now but we want to create and make something like this so for that we need to install a theme so come back to your dashboard at the left side you will see something but appearances however appearances select themes a great thing about WordPress is that you get so many beautiful and professional themes for free now click on wordpress.org themes because we want to install a free theme and the search bar type in passage on POS e I do N and here as you can see this is the theme you want so just click on install so once the theme is installed it will ask you to activate so click on activate ok so we have successfully activated our new theme now let’s again come back to our website and see how our new theme looks like so when we refresh the page.
This is how the theme is it is really simple and very good but still it misses all this stuff so what we have to do is now start creating post sidebars menus Louis and all ok for that come back to our dashboard and first we have to install some plugins so how our plugins at the left side and click on add new now we have to install some plugins I have written all the names of the plugins in the video description below so you can check out all the plugins so these are the different plugins social icons by name Grady so first ok so this is our first plug-in social icons by theme drainage so click on install now it says it’s been installed now click on activate ok so it is activated again how our plugins and select add new because we want to add more plugins and the next plug-in which we want to install is side origin widget bundle so type in site origin widget bundle in the search bar and this is the one we want so click on install now and again click on activate oh yes so similarly you can install and activate all the plugins which are given in the video description below the list is given in the video description below so once you install all your plugins we are ready to create our first host or our first blog login and the left sidebar how our host and click on add new and here is the title here the title will come it says enter title oh yeah so let’s see how we have created this blog so the title is powerful page template I am just copying and pasting this you can put in your title that befits your you know content that is good for your content then what we do is click on top toolbar toggle it gives us more options now let’s copy this text because I don’t want to type everything and waste your time okay so once you have copied that oh you guys so now let’s see how to put in the image audio so all you do is click on add media and upload a new file so for that click on select files and select the file you want so this is the file or this is the image I want so click on open now click on insert into post so as you can see that text is coming down because this is not aligned properly.
So click on the image and as you can see you will see different alignment options below at present it is set to no alignment what we have to do is select align left so as you can see the image has come to the left side and the text is now on the right side now we have to add this image full width image that is for stretch across the post so for that again click on add media upload files select File so this is the image we want to add so select that image and click on open so once you have done that click on insert into post so as you can see this image is coming very small so what we do is select over here and drag it or extract it till we find the perfect size so we have taken this image also now what we do is add some more text okay so I’m adding all this stats this clicker this copy and paste it over here so now let me show you how to put the text into block code as you can see this text is block coated so for that what we do is select the whole text which we want to code and at the top click on block code so once we do that the text shifts towards the right which say which mean which confirms that D text has been now added to the block code okay now we have to add some bulleted points so let’s see how to do that this copy again and now suppose we want to put a bullet point to this text or to this sentence what we do is select this sentence and click on bulleted list or if you want to make it number list so click on numbered list okay similarly for all different text.
Okay so this is how you create a bullet point or a number list in WordPress now we have to see how to color the text and put a link to the sentence or to any particular word so again copy these things paste it or your so as you can see it is not colored so suppose we want to color this sentence red so what we do is click on text color and select red color similarly you can do it for all the different text and this is already linked to some different page so suppose we want to remove the link so what we do is just click on this link and here it says remove click on remove says you can see that link has been removed and suppose from here for example we want to link this thing this particular word we want to link this particular word to some different page so what we do is just select this word at the top we click insert or edit link and put in the link suppose I want to now rewrite this sentence or this word to my website so I put in my website and click on apply so whenever somebody will click on this sentence they’ll be redirected to my website.
So this is how it happens so once we have created the blog our post at the right side we have to select and category that befits in the post at present we haven’t created any category so what we do is click on add name category so we can create a category from here only suppose we want to create a category called make money online although this doesn’t belong to this particular category but just for the purpose of showing you eyes and press ENTER so the category has been created and this thing is already ticked which means this post belong to this particular category then coming down we have featured image option so click on set featured image now we can select a featured image for this particular pose what is a featured image for example let’s come back to our home page in the demo website so as you can see this is a featured image which shows besides the post so for that just click on upload file and select any featured image of our choice for example I’m putting this one so select this click on you.
