What is WordPress?
WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (or CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It was started by Matt Mullenweg as a simple blogging software, but has since evolved into a powerful and flexible web development application.
You can create simple and powerful websites by using WordPress. Web design professionals use this software, but it can also be used by beginner users.
Steps to use WordPress
- Install it (CPanel or manually)
- Add a theme and customize it
- Add plugins
- Add content (Logo, photos, pages)
- Promote your website
Who can use WordPress?
WordPress is used by millions of people around the world, including individuals, small businesses, and large organizations. It is a very versatile platform that can be used for everything from a simple blog to a full-blown website.
How does WordPress work?
When you install WordPress, you are given a default theme and some sample content. You can also add plugins to expand the functionality depending on what you’re trying to accomplish with your new WP website.
Adding photos and pages is simple. After these steps you have a working website ready to be presented to your audience.
There are many great resources available to help you learn WordPress and get the most out of your website. The official WordPress Codex is a good place to start, as is the WordPress blog. There are also many helpful books on the subject, and don’t forget about the vast array of online support forums.
How to install WordPress manually?
First, download the latest version of WordPress from wordpress.org. Unzip the folder and upload it to your hosting account (via FTP). You can then point your web browser to yourdomain.com/wp-admin where you’ll be prompted to complete the installation right away or “run” WordPress locally for testing purposes.
You’ll need a database to store all the information, connect it to WP and that’s it. The installation wizard will take care of everything.
If you have CPanel, Plesk or any other web hosting panel, it should come with a WordPress installation option, which simplifies this process.
How to add a theme to WordPress?
If you want to change the appearance of your website, you can add a new WordPress theme. There are many free themes available in the WordPress Theme Directory, and you can also purchase themes from third-party providers.
To add a theme:
- Log into your WordPress Dashboard.
- Go to Appearance > Themes.
- Click the “Add New” and look at the available options.
- When you see something you like, click Install and then Activate, that’s it!
How to add plugins to WordPress?
WordPress plugins add extra features to your website. They range from simple contact forms and search boxes, to more advanced options such as e-commerce capabilities, photo galleries, and social media integration.
There are thousands of free plugins available in the WordPress Plugin Directory. Search for a plugin that meets your needs and then simply click Install Now, and Activate.
