in this quick video you will learn how to create a website using weeks the first thing that you need to do is go to Wix calm and create your own account it is best to use your school's email address to create your account click on create your website once you created your account and the site will give you choices as to what is it that you want to decide do you want to design a website for a business an online store photography designer restaurant and so on it is best to select business if for the purposes of this exercise or this assignment you also get two choices do you want to design your website using artificial design intelligence or using the Wix editor we will select Wix editor once you selected that choice if the website will give you different categories to select from and these are the different types and whatever you choose over here it'll give you a different selection for templates for your website so I will just select a plain business and I'm going to select this carpenter template as you can see if right now you can see the website as it will appear on a regular computer but if you hover on top of it you will see the website as it will appear on a mobile device something important to know is that it is free it is a free template they do offer templates that are customized and they charge for them so select edit to start editing your website now once you are in an edited editing mode this is um this is your view this is what you will see so let's start with a quick tour so over here on the top you have what's called the pages menu you have also all the extra stuffs that you will be needing like the background to add things in here or elements it's over here on your left side to add up applications in here to upload anything that you would like to upload pick upload pictures music videos etc this is where you will start your blog as well on the left side your left menu and then booking bookings refer to to schedule appointment classes event and so on for your business okay so super important to know is that this menu that you see right here it's called a tool bar and every time that you select a specific element inside like this I'll select that you have the option to to select any of these tools to use your tools okay so and if you want this particular element to show in all of your pages then you need to you need to have that on but if you do not want an element to show in all of your pages then it's it should be off okay right there now what happens if this disappears if for some reason you click on the X and that and then you can't see your tool bar again super easy just go to your tools over here on the top menu and checkmark it again okay so your tools will give you access to the tool bar to rulers if I click on it I'll get out the rulers right here why would I want boilers in there well do guide my work for the layout so that I don't go out of a certain space same thing with your grid lines these are your grid lines right here and that's where where your view will be your your page this is where the page will end when you actually publish it so if I deselect it I don't see it anymore if I select that I see it again snap to objects that means that when you're aligning things they'll snap to em to your rulers to your guides or to any other object that you might have in there they'll get two very close to it and snap into it okay so the first thing that we're going to do is to start with the pages make sure that you are on your home page select your home page and we're going to click on this sub menu here and let's go to let's see permissions okay and on permissions we're going to pass protected too so that only certain people can see our website and we want to do this because you guys are students and this websites will be created for educational purposes so we do not want everybody to be looking at all everything that you put in here especially if you happen to add personal information so it is again for educational purposes so make sure that again you go to page settings and go to permissions and click on password protected so that visitors need to enter a password to view it and select your password everybody will have to select the same password so that everybody has access in this class to this website so we will select Summer Bridge plus our password and then done and we already pass protected our website now this assignment requires for you to have at least four different pages home about a blog that you don't see in here and a miscellaneous website whatever it is that you decide it could be services products gallery contact you know whatever it is that you decide you new team decides so again you're going to have to edit this menu of pages and super easy just go right here where it says where you have that awesome menu again and you can renamed appliquéd it mess with the settings so again you have home already by default so leave that one alone all you need to do is just play with the design over here the about website same thing just you have it so this should contain information about your company or your brand and again you already have two of the ones that are required the third one would be the blog so you can always add it from here you go add a page and you name it a blog or the easiest thing to do is you exit pages and you go to start blogging and add now you will add an extra page for your blog because it is required for the purposes of this assignment so let's wait a little bit and I owe you you kind of like have to go over the information in here add a new blog post or manage your blog if I exit out of this you will see my blog page now over here in my pages so you haven't so that's how you add it and all you need to do is again I'll play a little bit with the design once you're ready for it so again you have home about your blog and then you get to choose anything that you want for miscellaneous and if you do not want gallery you can go to the submenu of gallery and remove it or delete it or rename it if you want to so that's a pretty quick overview of how to use Wix remember that you upload through this menu right here and remember also that you would have to upload your logo into the website because it has to show on the website as well once you're ready you hit unpublish and you select a name for your website because you are using the free Wix editor um it is a free domain that means that you get a free name you have to you have to kind of like deal with the fact that the Wix website will add all of these before the name of your website so your website will have a very very long name and it usually picks up the first part of your email address and then dot Wix site comm slash and then whatever name you decide depending on the the brand that you're trying to promote so if you're trying to promote a restaurant and your restaurant is called delicious restaurants so then you would type delicious restaurant or you know whatever it is that you want to decide the website will tell you if if it is available or if it's not your own website and then once you're done save and continue and you're all done I hope this was helpful for you and be sure to write down your full website address so that you don't forget and so that everybody else can see the great website that you have created
