Last month I began delivering a series of tutorials on the use of the Kadence Theme and Kadence Blocks in building WordPress websites. These tutorials form part of the local WordPress MeetUp where the project has been to build a website for a children’s playground safety organisation.
In the second tutorial, I cover the basics of designing layouts for the blog articles on your website:
sidebars – how and why to use a sidebar; “sticky” sidebars; widgets in sidebars
single post layout – how to design the best layout for for your single posts; featured images; titles; meta information; comments
post archives – how to best display the archives (or collections) of your posts; categories; search facility; etc.
Before each session is delivered, I create a video of the material to be covered and make that available on my website for the participants to review at a later time. The second session is now available and you are invited to check it out.
If you are considering a new website for your business you might like to check out a selection of professionally designed starter templates. These can be either just a source of ideas or they can be the actual template which is the starting point of your new website.
I was browsing through the range of starter templates built on the Kadence Theme and wanted to see just how effective they could be. I started with one and it actually became the starting point of what is now my website.
The pages listed below display starter templates for WordPress websites from two themes that I totally recommend:
The second edition of my newsletter with a case study on building a website to support a podcast; my new tutorial on building a WordPress website; availability of .au domain names and a look at CleanTalk – an antispam cloud service.
