In this video tutorial I will teach you how to build a WordPress website with custom widget areas the easy way. Even if you haven’t touched a single line of code before, this tutorial is simple enough to walk you through every code.
This tutorial goes hand in hand with Christian’s video tutorial on how to create a website from scratch using HTML5 and CSS3. The goal is to help you understand how easy it is to create the same layout (from Christian’s tutorial) in WordPress using custom widget areas. Although you will need to put the pieces together a little, it’s a fun learning experience nonetheless!
Resources for this tutorial:
- Canvas – (important) it’s a paid WordPress theme from WooThemes, but the video tutorial below can still be applied using other themes.
- Responsive Theme – a free alternative, really great theme with millions of downloads monthly.
