Please Pardon Our Remodel
While we work to update our site with relevant content reflecting the advancement of WordPress and the Divi Builder over the last few years, feel free to watch the following WordPress tutorial. While watching the producer’s (Yoast SEO) video, bear in mind the WordPress block editor referenced is not the default page builder on NoSpin Web. We have chosen to offer the premium Divi Builder post and page authoring tool rather than the default WordPress block editor (AKA Gutenberg). If you must have the Gutenberg editor, that poses no problem. You may either make the switch yourself, or notify us and we’ll do it for you.
About the Tutorial Content
We recommend skipping ahead to Module 2.4 (33:03) to avoid the discussion on how to purchase WordPress hosting, a domain name and the installation of WordPress since NoSpin Web is fully managed WordPress hosting on cPanel servers. However, module 1.3, WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org (6:29) is recommended to shed light on the difference between these two basic WordPress hosting paradigms.
Modules 3.5 and 3.6 are also optional since they discuss what WordPress themes are and how to install and activate them. We do however recommend watching module 3.7 (begins at 1:26:10) which discusses the WordPress Customizer, also known as the WordPress Theme Customizer. While watching module 3.7, keep in mind we have pre-installed the two Divi Page Builder themes (Divi and Extra) for you; therefore, your available options will be different. Nevertheless, the author’s WordPress Customizer tutorial is a proper introduction to the WordPress Theme Customizer. Switching from Divi to Extra and vice versa; i.e, changing themes, is discussed in module 3.6.
Section 4 of the tutorial covers “How to Use the Block Editor”. We encouraged you to digest the material in module 4.1 (begins at 2:01:06) which covers the difference between Posts and Pages in WordPress. The remainder of section 4 will provide a foundation for working with the WordPress block editor (AKA, Gutenberg) and contrasts its functionality to that of the Divi Builder. An introduction to working with the Divi and Extra themes is available from within your WordPress Dashboard by navigating to either Divi > Support Center or Extra > Support Center, depending upon which of the two themes is active on your site.
Everyone should consume the material in Section 5, “How to Structure Your Site”, through Section 7, “How to Improve Your SEO”. Module 5.1 (begins at 2:42:08) introduces taxonomies and WordPress Categories and Tags. For a thorough understanding of how WordPress organizes content, one should comprehend WordPress taxonomies. A default, uncustomized, WordPress installation comes with the two default taxonomies: Categories and Tags. Bearing this in mind may prevent future confusion should you find a need to customize how your WordPress site organizes your content.
