How To Make a WordPress Website - 2018 In 24 Easy Steps

Hey there everybody, I thought I’d post a little video I just found, this is a great source for creating an awesome WordPress website using the Elementor Page Builder.  This guy clearly knows what he’s talking about.  Check it out.

 

He uses the Elementor Page Builder, which is a really nice one and one that I do recommend.  Elementor has been downloaded by over a million people and they find it to be a fast and user-friendly way to create a new website.  It’s fast, user friendly and you don’t have to know how to code to get the most out of it.

Elementor offers total customization over your website layouts. You can choose how tall and wide to make every section, which lets you get past simple and generic page designs. You’ll have complete control over everything, from the basic architecture of the page to the fine details. You can resize columns and tinker with the look and feel of those if you would like, you can also move columns and content positions to give the right amount of padding and margins to all of your sections. Unique feature that only Elementor or has, you can use pixels, EM or % of the page to have fine control over everything. It’s really handy.

You can choose column gaps, design something and save it to reuse it later. There’s a huge section of pre-made templates to help get you started so if one of them is close to what you want, it just takes a few tweaks to get the exact website that you want. This team is Pixel Perfect and requires absolutely no coding, which saves you time and money. The Pixel Perfect designs and over 400 awesome icons, not to mention the 800-plus Google fonts and unlimited colors to make a really great experience. This Elementor page builder is extendable and Incredibly developer-friendly, it offers web developers design freedom to customize and extend the theme. Elementor is open source and has high-quality code, it’s and. I think it’s one of the better page builders for WordPress and that’s thanks in large part to its open source code.
