HELLO,  How Are you Doing Today? Great I Guess! ..

Today We’ll Be Going Through The Second Part Of The Tutorial—> How To Create A Beautiful Website And Make Money From It. 

Customizing WordPress Website

One of the best parts of a WordPress website is the quickly customizable options that it provides you with on the go. Check out the rest of our WordPress guide to see the various ways you can customize a WordPress site.

Installing WordPress Themes

A theme allows you to control the look and design of your WordPress website including colors, page layout, and fonts. You can get a free theme or you can pay for a premium one. In our guide we will mainly focus on the free themes.

To manage WordPress themes, choose Appearance and Themes from the navigation section in your dashboard.

To install a new theme simply click the Add New button. It will take you to a directory of free themes. Use search or filters to find a theme you want to use. Once you have chosen the theme that you like, click on Preview button to see how it looks on your site. If you’re happy with the result, press Install button.

You can further customize your already installed theme with the help of a theme customization tool in WordPress. Simply click on Appearance in the left menu, and click on Customize. From there, you can customize the current theme as per your needs by changing site identity, colors, background image, menus, widgets and so on.

That’s all it takes to change the look of a WordPress website!

Installing WordPress Plugins

Plugins are extensions that can be installed on WordPress in order to extend its functionality and add new features to your website.

There are plugins for almost everything. From social media sharing to improving the security of your site to giving you data about how the people visit your site and search engine optimization.

To add a new plugin, click on the Add new button under Plugins section. Choose from FeaturedPopularRecommendedFavorites or enter keyword in the search field to find the plugin you want. To install the plugin, press Install Now and then Activate buttons.

The Upload Plugin button on top allows you to upload plugins that have been purchased.

Most plugins will give you a new item on your navigation menu: this is where you will control your plugin from.

ESSENTIAL TIP

When choosing a plugin, it is best to check if it’s compatible with the latest WordPress version. This can be seen by checking the date it has been updated. Also, check how many ratings the plugin has. An out of date or a poor quality plugin may cause problems with your site.

Adding Widgets

Widgets allow you to change the layout and the content of your site simply and quickly.

Widgets can be accessed from the dashboard, under Appearance section.

You will see a list of available widgets. On the side, you have areas where you can place your widgets. By default you should have the Primary Sidebar, a Content Sidebar, and a Footer Widget Area. However, the number of widgets depends on the WordPress theme you are using.

To add a widget, you simply need to expand the area where you want the widget to be, drag and drop the widget there and click Save.

To remove a widget, simply click and drag it away from the widget area. If you want to add your own text to a widget, choose a plain text widget and then put the text or HTML code in there.

 

Updating WordPress Site

WordPress handles small updates itself, so you don’t have to worry about it. The larger ones will give you the option to update at your chosen time. Meanwhile you can look at the features of the update or put your site on maintenance mode.

There are three things you must always update on your WordPress site: WordPress itself, themes and plugins. You can update your site from the Update section in the navigation bar.

It is very important to keep your whole WordPress site up to date. That is because when a plugin or a theme is updated, you may get new functionalities and bug fixes. It is also a crucial part to keeping a WordPress website secure and fast.

Working With Widgets

In conclusion

WordPress is a very user-friendly and interactive way to host your website. And our WordPress tutorial showed how easy it is to install this CMS on 000webhost. One of the reasons why WordPress gained such massive popularity was its ability to customize and edit, as per the needs directly from the backend without hiring any professional or writing single line of code. Some WordPress features are so easy to grasp that they do not even need to be included in this 000webhost WordPress guide.

But, that’s not just about it. You can integrate your WordPress website with social media, and other third party APIs to further enhance its functionality. You can even add Google custom search engine and other related functions to it. That being said, one thing is for sure – with a few tips and tricks, a lot can be done using WordPress.
