WordPress For Beginners Tutorials and information. We source some of the best tutorials online to help you manage your wordpress website.
In this tutorial I’ll show you: ‘How to create a free WordPress website for a restaurant’. The only costs involved are for hosting and domain registration just like any other website.
To create a perfect restaurant website we will be using the fastest provider (update: 12 may), and the most installed Content Management System (CMS) called WordPress.
Furthermore, we will be installing the popular Astra theme, starter templates and easy to use Elementor Page Builder that accompanies these.
In this video you’ll also find an overview of all settings and possibilities with the contact form and booking calendar plugin to make appointments.
Perfect means: visually appealing with all basic functionalities in the hospitality industry. If you still have any questions after creating the website, don’t hesitate to ask.
