How to use to build a website using WordPress: For normal people

  1. How to use WordPress as a basic CMS for your website Or “How non-geeks can use WP to make a website in a day”
  2. It’s more than a blog engine <ul><li>We’ve known WP can do cool stuff </li></ul><ul><li>Since 2.1 setting a Page as the “home page” has been built in. </li></ul><ul><li>Do you use it? </li></ul><ul><li>Why not? </li></ul>
  3. Why is this good? <ul><li>When the design & the content are together in the code </li></ul><ul><li>Updating can be less than fun </li></ul><ul><li>Result: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Websites aren’t updated </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Agencies charge arms, legs, first-born children, to make simple changes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A “simple change” breaks links and several pages </li></ul></ul>
  4. Is this the right solution? <ul><li>Need easily updated content </li></ul><ul><li>User control </li></ul><ul><li>Flexible design </li></ul><ul><li>Static info & a blog </li></ul><ul><li>SEO tuned </li></ul><ul><li>Fast initial build out </li></ul>
  5. First steps to your first site <ul><li>Decide that it’s the right way to do it. </li></ul><ul><li>Make two static pages </li></ul><ul><li>Go to the Reading section under Settings </li></ul><ul><li>Make two changes from pull-down menus </li></ul><ul><li>Save </li></ul><ul><li>Done! </li></ul><ul><li>Well almost </li></ul>
  6. Step one: Make two pages <ul><li>Home page: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Call it what you want </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use Lorem ipsum text if needed </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Blog page </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Static page </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I like to call it “Blog” it’s really up to you </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No content, just a title </li></ul></ul>
  7. Step Two: Reading Settings
  8. Step Three: Menus
  9. That’s pretty much it, for the basics <ul><li>Yeah, but that’s boring </li></ul><ul><li>What’s next? </li></ul><ul><li>Tweaks, Themes, and plugins </li></ul>
  10. Tweaks <ul><li>Make those Permalinks pretty! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Settings -> Permalinks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I like /%postname%/ for websites </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>.htaccess will have to be updated </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Not “Just another WordPress blog” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t forget a good title and tag line! </li></ul></ul>
  11. Plugins <ul><li>All in one SEO </li></ul><ul><li>WP Supercache </li></ul><ul><li>WP Backup </li></ul><ul><li>Google Sitemaps XML </li></ul><ul><li>Akismet </li></ul><ul><li>Cform </li></ul><ul><li>WPTouch & WP Mobile </li></ul>
  12. Picking a template <ul><li>This is the hardest part </li></ul><ul><li>Finding a non-bloggy template important </li></ul><ul><li>Newspaper style </li></ul><ul><li>Magazine </li></ul><ul><li>Navigation </li></ul>
  13. Navigation sometimes presents a problem… <ul><li>Templates build the navigation by listing all the static pages… </li></ul><ul><li>And sometimes they also hard code in a “Home” </li></ul>
  14. Here’s the trick <ul><li>Exclude listing some pages: </li></ul><ul><li><div id=&quot;navigation&quot;> </li></ul><ul><li><!-- Begin navigation  </li></ul><ul><li><ul> </li></ul><ul><li><li><a href=&quot;<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/&quot;>Home</a></li> </li></ul><ul><li><li><a href=&quot;http://ces.blogm2o.com/blog/&quot;>Blog</a></li> </li></ul><ul><li><?php wp_list_pages('exclude=2,10&title_li=&depth=1'); ?> </li></ul><ul><li></ul> </li></ul><ul><li></div><!--End navigation --> </li></ul>
