5Step-by-step: creating a basic model website

You’ve Planned Your Site and You’ve Set Up Wordpress. We’re Now Going to See How to Create a Basic Website.

This walkthrough uses the WordPress default theme. We can consider this a “starter recipe” from which you can move on to more advanced setups once you have mastered the basics. The current default theme has a clean, simple, and attractive design, and you may find this is the perfect theme for your website. Some of you may want to start immediately on something more complex; do follow the walkthrough in its entirety, however, as you will learn things here that you will need to know later on, when customizing a more complex template.
