COMPLETE STEP BY STEP TO BUILD THE SAMPLE SITE
What's nice is that you will be able to build our fully responsive sample site, WebDesignTrainingSchool.com, in a little less than two hours of web development time. Then you are ready to start building your own WordPress website where the only thing you'll have to invest is your time and the hosting is going to run anywhere from maybe $5-$10 per a month. Call this WordPress for Dummies if you like, but when you see the results you can create yourself, you will see who the real dummies are. :-)
While building our sample site WebDesignTrainingSchool.com, we’ll learn how to build a logo online so you won’t have to buy any software, we’ll learn how to create a menu bar, and we’ll learn how to do pull downs in a menu bar. Then we’ll learn how to make a meta slider of images, in this case it's some images that are glowing in and out. We'll also learn how to make call-to-action areas, we'll learn how to make a photo gallery, we'll then learn how to add social media to the bottom of every page. Next we'll build all the interior pages starting with an about us. We'll learn how to add links to a page as well as graphics and then we'll build a courses page which will have the courses with drill downs and then inside of each of the courses page will learn how to add YouTube videos to the page. Then we'll build a testimonials page where we'll learn how to do fancy little boxes around each of the testimonials. On the donations page we'll learn how to make a donation button, add more graphics, and more links. Finally on the contact us page we'll learn how to build a fully functional Contact Us page including a message area that will send an email to you or anybody you choose. Also it'll have a functional google map that will allow us to zoom in zoom out and left and right. You'll then be able to use any combination of these new skills in your current and future projects.

Thank you so much. There is an audio widget on the WP site but it is for short audios.Solved the CONTACT page issues, emails were going to spam; Overlap of Message center was related to attributes...now I know...many thanks dk
For visitor counts, I have used hit counter max 2.0 plugin in the past and it works nicely. You can find it here https://wordpress.org/plugins/hit-counter-max/, just download it m then add the plugin as you did the others. As for adding audio, I have not had a client request that feature so I have not tested any audio plugins, but the following link may be a good starting point. https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/audio/
the code webyoda give you 60% off and is valid. I also have a 2019 course both courses are different sites so you would want to decide which site best meets your needs. Both courses still work just fine. the link to 2019 course is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRUUMTPhLH0
WOW that really frustrates me that they have changed their policy. You could do the free trial using a gmail account. Then if the trial runs out make a new trial picmonkey account by altering your gmail for example [email protected] works the same as [email protected], but picmonkey will think it is a new gmail account. Also this site seems free but my instructions will not work here: https://www.fotor.com
Thanks Gail, great students like yourself make it all worth it. Be sure to view my 2019 WordPress course as it has lots on new great features like video backgrounds

Dear Yoda: Daily I tell myself to take a moment and thank you for this miraculous video that allowed me to create and work on daily to improve ....prayingwithteresaofavila.com....I am so appreciative to you and wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! I just can't thank you enough for your phenomenal teaching skill, quiet demeanor and generous spirit.I am implementing a French School of Prayer in Bordeaux France https://www.oraison-bordeaux.fr/les-enseignements.htmlbut they use all audio, they record the talks and then post them. I prefer the pwr pt and handouts to allow people everywhere to create a school based on my work. With the French I have to listen, translate, etc.....BUT....Could you help me know how to do what they are doing. You sent me a link with info but my level is so elementary that I don't know what to do with it. If it is not a widget on my site I don't know how to add one....anyway with that information and recordings added to my site anyone anywhere could create their own school of prayer based on my work.....any time maybe after the holidays to do a short video on it....how to add an Audio widget to my site widgets already installed.Anyway enough of me...hope you are well and all my best for the New Year 2019....Dawn Keeler [email protected]
WP hosting is a web host that supports WordPress. In many cases they try to sell you WP hosting at a higher rate and they install WP for you. In this video we purchase regular web hosting and manually install WP ourselves. It is an one-click install with hostgator, very easy.
Facilities for business continuity may include alternate workspace equipped for continuation of business operations. Alternate facilities may be owned or contracted including office space, data center, manufacturing and distribution.
Systems for emergency response may include detection, alarm, warning, communications, suppression and pollution control systems. Protection of critical equipment within a data center may include sensors monitoring heat, humidity and attempts to penetrate computer firewalls.
Every building has exit routes so people can evacuate if there is a hazard within the building. These exit routes should be designed and maintained in accordance with applicable regulations.
Business continuity resources may include spare or redundant systems that serve as a backup in case primary systems fail. Systems for crisis communications may include existing voice and data technology for communicating with customers, employees and others.
Equipment includes the means for teams to communicate. Radios, smartphones, wired telephone and pagers may be required to alert team members to respond, to notify public agencies or contractors and to communicate with other team members to manage an incident.
Many tools may be required to prepare a facility for a forecast event such as a hurricane, flooding or severe winter storm.
Materials and Supplies.
Materials and supplies are needed to support members of emergency response, business continuity and crisis communications teams. Food and water are basic provisions.
Systems and equipment needed to support the preparedness program require fuel. Emergency generators and diesel engine driven fire pumps should have a fuel supply that meets national standards or local regulatory requirements. That means not allowing the fuel supply to run low because replenishment may not be possible during an emergency. Spare batteries for portable radios and chargers for smartphones and other communications devices should be available.
