In this video, I go through the step by step process of making a website using WordPress (the most popular content management systems). This WordPress tutorial is perfect for beginners who want to create a business website, hobby site or even can be used to start your own freelancer business.

The biggest difference from this video and others, is that we go through how to choose colours, fonts, where to get all our images from, how to edit your assets, prototyping on Adobe XD and even how to rank your website on Google!

This is the Complete WordPress Course 🙂 If you have any questions, drop it in the comments section below or email me at [email protected]

  1. Once again the fantastic world of Hogan strikes again, great Video mate, but what I find, is YesI can create your sites but alas I would like a DEDICATED example of "How to Actually put it on to the web", for us less skilled please, can you help, (I use
    Nice to have you back buddy.

  2. Hello Hogan, is there a way I can work on my website without making it public everytime I make a change? In other words, I'd like to have a private rough draft version and then make it public when I decide to. Does this work with Themify Builder? What I want to avoid is people going to my website and seeing a work in progress instead of a finished ready to use website. Your advice would help a lot. Thanks 🙂

  3. Hogan, I updated my themify with this new file and I didn't realize it wasn't the themify shoppe theme. Do you have an updated version of the themify shoppe theme because the old themify shoppe theme stopped working. Appreciate you!

  4. Hi Hogan..I have a doubt..When I choose 'Header Stripe' as Header design, these is a red background colour appears on the logo background…how do i change that?

  5. Hogan, thank you for the awesome tutorial. I am trying to follow you in the Milanote app, but I can't open the icon to see the lists. It says read only, are we not able to see these? Thank you!

  6. Hi Hogan. Great vid as always. Quick question. I am having issues with making my site cell phone compatable. I have adjusted the content for size, then hidden it accordingly using the Visibility tab…however nothing changes. It seems setting somethings visibility to mobile only, has no effect and is not recognizing the size change….Any idea why its not working?

  7. trying to follow along with your video but the video doesn't seem to line up with actually doing it. 1:38:00 in the video to alter the heading 1 font. Using the theme it doesn't alter the heading 1. Inspected the element and it doesn't say its heading 1.

  8. Hi Hogan, I am planning starting a new website for blogging. I will have pictures and videos on it. How does Themify compare to other themes with regards to downloading speed which I have been told is VIP?

  9. Thanks for the tutorial 🙂 I have followed your previous tutorials but I'm stuck in the section where I should modify the website to make it mobile responsive, the issue is that whenever I change something in the mobile mode it also change the laptop view! any help?

  10. Hi Hogan! I hope you are well? I just had a quick question about themify. For some reason my home page displays normally, but every other page on my website has margins/white space on the top, left, right and bottom. It happened all of a sudden, and I can't find any solutions to the problem. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks so much Hogan!

  11. Love your tutorials!! You have taught a person like me who is from a medical background, how to make websites. Thanks for making it simple. I am stuck at just one place. Social media login. I have tried everything even supersocializer. Could you please guide me?
