‘How to build a website for a child’
We are all guilty of making mistakes, and this article offers a quick, simple, and free way to fix them.
The goal is not to teach the world to write better web design, but to show the reader how to make a site with no effort whatsoever.
So here we go:1.
Start with your first article2.
Write it down, then start with the design of the website.
It is best to start with your own website first.3.
Make it simple.
For this tutorial, we will be building a simple home page with a list of articles, but the same principles apply.4.
Keep your list of links to a minimum.
You should only include a handful of links per article.
This will ensure the user gets the most out of the content and keep the site simple.5.
Add a title tag, preferably something that looks like this: “This article contains”6.
Use the CSS for the sidebar, footer, and navigation bar.
If you want, include an extra button to close the page after typing the article title, but I’m not going to give it too much thought here.7.
Create a list called “About” and use it for your title tag.
Don’t forget to add the “about” tag at the end of the title tag and for your footer tag.8.
Add an “About this article” link to your footers.
For now, I will be using the image at the top of this page to illustrate the point.9.
Set the page’s background color.
I chose the “black” background color, but you can choose whatever color you like.10.
Set your layout to “header” or “footer”.11.
Use your default WordPress theme to create a single page layout with an image.12.
Set a “title” tag to your article title.
This is important for the title and the header tag to be displayed properly.13.
Add the page title to your “About page” and “About us” pages.14.
Create the “home page”.
Set the “header-image” to the image from the “About”.15.
Add another header-image and another “About image” to your home page.16.
Set up the page layout to display your home.
This can be done in the sidebar or by editing your “Home” and “.about” pages (you can change the default WordPress layout here).17.
Create an “about-us” page for your home, with a footer that displays the article’s title and author.18.
Add additional text to the “Home page” to tell the user that this is the home page of the article, and that they should “like” the article and “share” it with others.19.
Add your main logo and your “about me” page to your about page.20.
Add some content to your sidebar to tell others about the article.21.
Create another home page to display the article in a list.22.
Add several footers, to display different sections of the site.23.
Add one footer to your main header and another to your About page to create the “headline” section.24.
Create more footers and add more text to your header.25.
Add more footer and footer content to each of your “main” sections.26.
Add text to each footer section to show how the article is related to the article at the time of publishing.27.
Create your “title page” for your main content.28.
Add “about us” section to your title page.29.
Create additional “about page” content to tell people what the article does.30.
Create “About a” page on your About pages and “about a.com” page, to tell your visitors about the topic of the page.31.
Create separate “about the web” pages for each article.
If your content is too long for your About sections, create a separate “About the web,” “about.com,” and “the web” sections for each section.32.
Add links to your web and news pages.
For example, you can create a section called “news,” “blogs,” and so on.33.
Add image tags for the main article image.34.
Add other images for your article and for the related article.35.
Add images for the images in the links in your foot, sidebar, and about pages.36.
Add HTML tags to your pages to tell them what the site is about.37.
Add custom content for your site and the related sites.
This includes your own name and a link to an archive of your content.38.
Add information for each of the sites, to make sure that you can get them up to date.39.
Add relevant links to the relevant articles.
This may include an image, a link from the site’s homepage, a copy of the related articles, or a link that goes to
