Designing a website takes a good proficiency in graphic design, storytelling, and structure. Gone are those days when websites were just a collection of a few basic static pages filled with texts that remain the same year after year without changing. Today is the age of dynamic sites that interact with the visitors and present the appropriate content customized to their needs. Here in our web design company Seattle, we understand that, and we create the sites your customers love. You can check our portfolio for various website designs done for our esteemed clients on our site.
Web design class: WordPress editing
We did the image editing part in the last chapter, we will continue from there in this article. Once we’re happy with our about page the next page I think we should add the contact page. So we can just head back over to our dashboard page on the left-hand side and then click “add new” up at the top. Then we can give our page a title, so I’m just going to call it “contact me,” you can obviously name it “contact us” though. Then once again I’m going to paste some text into the main content area, and add an image – only this time instead of the image appearing in the corner, I want it to appear as a banner at the top of the page. So to do that once again we just click at the start of the text, click add media at the top, upload files, and select files – now I select an image that I’m going to be using here. Once you click on it, then click open, and here we can add our title and alternative text for SEO and change these options if we like. Now, I’m going to click insert into page, and as you can see how it takes up the full top of the page editor with the text underneath. We are going to come back in a little while and add a contact form to this page as well.
So this would be the page where you would write your contact details, like your address, phone number, email id, etc. along with a short standard message so that people might be able to get in contact with you. But we are going to come back later and edit this page further, but for now, you can just publish the page – so click publish on the right-hand side. Once you’re satisfied with your contact page, then once again we can click view page, and now you can see the image appears at the top like a banner. There we have our text, and underneath we are going to be adding our form. Now, the next page we’re going to be adding is where our blog posts will appear, so we don’t have to add any text or images to this page, it’s just going to be a blank page called blog or my blog or something like that. However, you can see that when we are adding multiple pages – we don’t always have to go back to the dashboard anymore. We can actually just hover over where it says add new at the top and click page, and that’s going to bring us into the page editor.
