ALL NEW 2019 VERSION IS NOW LIVE :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRUUMTPhLH0 WORDPRESS FOR BEGINNERS This how to make a WordPress website for beginners tutorial covers all the steps needed to create your own WordPress website from start to finish. This includes the steps for determining a good WordPress web host, purchasing WordPress web hosting, installing WordPress for free, installing themes and plug-ins for your WordPress for free, and then step-by-step walking you through everything you'll need to know to create your website from start to finish.

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.

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/

Since this video is in the 2018 and it is now 2019 can you please tell me the new codes if any?.
WebYoda (1 month ago)
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

pic monkey I have to pay, do you know a web page its free. force to pay
Emily Yin (9 days ago)
Try fotojet.com. It has premium option for payment, while it's has 100% free option even without registration requirement. :) Help share WebYoda tutorial to help more people, if you like it. ;)
WebYoda (2 months ago)
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

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]

WebYoda (3 months ago)
WordPress is an application that lets you build your website more easily
SYLVIA HALL (4 months ago)
What is the difference between getting "web hosting" vs. "wp hosting"?
WebYoda (3 months ago)
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.
