WordPress For Beginners Tutorials and information. We source some of the best tutorials online to help you manage your wordpress website.

In this video I show you step by step how to create a WordPress website using the Divi theme. Since WordPress and Divi where updated it was time for a new and better tutorial. So I will show you how to create a website yourself from scratch using the amazing features that the Divi theme has got to offer.

We will get a domain name and webhosting if you don’t have that already, install WordPress, create pages, install the Divi theme, work with the Visual Builder, make use of pre made layouts, learn how to optimise our workflow, configure our theme, create a portfolio, create blogpages and blogposts, optimise our website for all devices and create a contact page.

But that is not all. We will work with the Divi 4.0 theme builder. With the theme builder we can assign custom made headers, templates and footers to any page, post and category. I will show you in the overview of the tutorial what is possible.
