A Makeover

Hello family and friends!

During this week for work, I decided to do some reconstruction of my domain. To begin this process, I simply watched a youtube tutorial for beginners. This video was very informative and I was inspired to redo my domain. It started with adding another plugin to my domain. A plugin is basically an installation that adds features to a domain, and there are a lot of plug-ins to choose from. I choose a plugin called “Elementor.” This plugin allows you to edit pages more easily.

While this plugin was super easy to use, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t encounter difficulties. My home page used to have a banner and my most recent blog posts. This is setting that I used in my theme’s settings. However, I couldn’t figure out how to keep that setting while editing the home page. I had to make a new home page and make it static. A static home page means just that, it’s stationary. I couldn’t figure out how to make my most recent blog posts appear on this page without my new home page disappearing.

I enjoy playing around with my blog’s look and being able to improve each page! Being creative with my domain is fun!

Thanks for reading!

    Great use of your work from home time Ruthie. Learning more about WordPress and it’s many plugin’s is always a good thing and it changes so fast that there are always more to learn.

    Combining a blog and a home page can be difficult but I would recommend a link on your menu to the overall blog in case folks want a timeline. – my 2 cents anyway. Awesome makeover and I bet you learned a lot.

  2. I appreciate your willingness to explore, Ruthie. I am interested in the youtube video you watched. Can you share those links with me?
