once you get your hosting account your next step is to go to your control panel which I’m going to show you how to do that now okay now once your weapon your hosting account is all set up you went through the steps and you’re gonna get an email confirmation from iPage they’re gonna email you your username and your password what you want to do then is go to iPage comm and you’re gonna click on login okay now you’re gonna take that information that
you received in your email and you’re gonna type it in here okay once you type your information in there’s our username here’s our password we’re gonna click login we’ve decided on a domain name we’ve already set up the hosting account now we’re logging into our hosting account just show you how to do that okay and this is the page you get when you log into your hosting account okay next thing we want to do is you want to go to your control panel
and that’s where right now when you log into your account this is your control panel you can see it right there the next step we want to do is we want to look for the WordPress icon so let’s go ahead and find that out I see where that’s at where is the WordPress icon there it is right there boom just go down to your WordPress icon okay after that you’re gonna click explore explore Mojo marketplace you want to click there okay now once you click
on explore Mojo marketplace is going to take you to a page that looks like this okay and you’re gonna want to hit install now here is where your domain name should be we have several but you should only have one so we’re gonna go ahead and choose directory tutorial check domain name see if it’s available okay could take a couple of minutes depending on your server okay it looks like the process is complete so we’re gonna click I have read the
Terms of agreement and then you want to hit install now it’s gonna take a little time says you’re currently running one process there’s your green bar there so it’s moving a lot okay looks like our process is complete now once it’s complete you want to click view credentials and this is gonna give you all your information here click view and this is gonna tell you how to log in to your WordPress dashboard now here is your URL here is your admin
URL your username and your password okay so now in order to log in to your dashboard you’re gonna click on admin URL there’s a pace it’s gonna pop up it’s gonna ask you for a username and password you want to come and get this username here copy it paste it in username and then you want to come and get your password and you want to paste it there get login takes a little while now you are officially in your WordPress dashboard congratulations now
that you’re in your WordPress dashboard it gets exciting and it gets fun because this is where all the fun takes place what you want to do now you want to install the theme we’re gonna show you how to do that if you go here where it says appearance you’re gonna click on themes okay here’s all the different themes that you can install we’re gonna install the Vantage theme okay so we click on the plus button and we want to search for Vantage
facticity there it is and we’re gonna click install so that’s probably gonna take a little while okay there you go click activate and now you have officially launched the Vantage theme okay now the one just want to customize the theme we personally have bought this theme I want to encourage you it’s a nice thing it’s really nice I want to encourage you to buy it also so let’s go from here let’s go to customize and what we’re gonna do is we’re
going to get rid of this and we’re gonna make our theme just have these three buttons here widget line ladies pose and all that good stuff there alright but before we do that we’re gonna go and purchase the theme we’ve already purchased it where you see where it says Vantage premium you’re gonna click there we’ve already bought it you could buy it for $10 15 or any custom donation that’s the cool thing about the Vantage theme there’s no set price
what are you whatever you would like to give toward it that’s what you can do okay so we’re gonna click already paid and we’re gonna type in our password boom and we’re gonna hit enable upgrade update theme click OK and everything’s loading up alright so we’re gonna go to customize now remember our goal is to get our website to look like this right so let’s see how close we learn first we’re gonna do is get rid of this I don’t particularly don’t
use it hey I just like to go straight to this theme here like this you know now having this slider work for you it’s pretty cool but we’re not going to talk about that too all right so we’re gonna do now is we’re gonna go to theme settings to get rid of the slider so it says layout a home navigation law social general we’re gonna go to home see where says the most ladder you’re gonna click none and you’re gonna hit save settings okay so now let’s
take a look at how our site looks now since that we’ve made that change there you go we’ve got rid of this slider one step closer okay let’s see how far we’ve come along we install WordPress we just don’t install the theme now we want to design our homepage let’s go work on that okay maybe we could go for the header we’re gonna install the header now so I’m just order to stall the header then go back to your dashboard okay and you’re gonna go to
appearance and you’re gonna go to theme settings you’re gonna click on late logo and we already have a logo so we’re gonna choose image upload files select our file and we’re gonna go get our logo so let’s do that there is there this is a logo that we want to upload we’ve already had a design and your Casey with these on your own personal logo I’m gonna click there set logo and hit save settings so let’s go to website let’s see how it’s looking
now what kind of progress all right we’ve got a header now if you notice there’s some writing here so we need to get rid of that okay so our goal is to get rid of this writing here so we’re gonna go to our dashboard and we’re gonna go to appearance and theme settings okay see where it says call me maybe take that out you hit save settings now let’s go view our website and see how it looks now okay the writing is gone alright once again our goal
is to get it to look like this so let’s go back to our dashboard we’re getting there we’re taking steps okay the next thing that we want to work on let’s see where are we at we’ve installed WordPress when they start the wordpress theme and we’re designing our homepage why don’t we work on fixing this banner here so we’re gonna go to a parent and we’re gonna go to customize okay we’re gonna see if we could fix up our background notice how this one
is real tight but that ours has a lot of space see the spaces and then there’s white there but this was kind of grayish this is black that’s blue I see how we could change all that okay so we’re gonna start with our let’s start with our header we’re gonna change the distance of this or modified let’s start with the color first okay so you can see this color here we move this around see how it changes so let’s go ahead and move it to about right
there I like that okay so these select current color now it changed now what we want to do is want to get rid of some of this space you know this one’s really tight but this one has a lot of space so let’s go to page I’m sorry not page we’re gonna go to I think it’s menu and let’s see for sure which one this is let me see now menu let’s try general that’s in general okay right now your header spacing is 40 let’s take it to 32 see I got smaller
that’s still kind of big this blue the 27 last d7 is 421 okay I like that better see how remember it was 40 watch how big it gets see how big that is we’re gonna take it down to 21 lessons your space not only that let’s go to our menu here and let’s make that a little smaller so you go scroll down and see where it says 21 let’s make it 15 that’s decent huh alright whatever size is good for you you could do you could do 17 here whatever is best
for you let’s leave it at 17 you’re gonna hit save so now you’ve tightened your header you’ve tightened your menu bar let’s see what else can we do here to make it look oh let’s change this color here okay so we’re gonna go to once again that’s our menu see background color let’s try to go for some blue I like that right there let’s just leave it well it’s changed a little bit boom you can make again whatever color you want you could change it
you know whatever you feel we’re gonna make our blue okay so we’ll leave it like that and you hit save now if you notice what I come over the back it’s orange and that one’s orange too but let’s change that color so you got hovered background let’s change it to light blue so when we go here let’s give you like a Turk or let’s try to turquoise I believe that’s how you say so when you scroll over here it’s gonna be like a turquoise now our goal is
to get it to look like this but let’s be a little bit different okay so we’ll change our colors once again whatever color you like you could change it to that you could change it to red if you want so when you hover over here it’s gonna be your it could be burgundy okay but we’re gonna go with turquoise I believe that’s how you said turn color so okay and won’t even like that and we’ll hit save and publish it now the next thing we want to do is
we want to get our page to have these icons like that so we’re going to exit out of here and the way you’ve changed these icons you’re going to go to a parent and you’re going to go to homepage alright and see these three things here these are your circles one two three and you got circles one two three all right let’s so let’s change the first one and this is your writing see this writing here oh this is the writing here so let’s say what I want
