How to make a website with WordPress and Divi theme in 2018

Now that you’ve completed installing the layout pack for your site, it’s time for you to customize its colors and content. The process is easy and is usually completed in the front end of your site. To start out, simply click on the enable visual builder’ and you’ll soon find options for customizing your site.

Installing Plugins to make the most out of WordPress

Now, even before you install your plugins, you might be wondering what these are. Well, I’ll clarify this doubt. Plugins are nothing but small extensions that are designed to enhance the capabilities and overall features of WordPress.

Plugins can be used everywhere- you can use them for adding new photo galleries, form submission pages or for even creating your online store. How to get a plugin installed? In order to start installing a plugin, simply head to the option called plugins’ and click on add new’. After you do this, you’ll find a host of plugins to pick from. Browse through the 25,000 free plugins to finally choose your preferred option.

Once you’re done with this, simply click on install’. To make things simpler for you, here are some of the popular plugins that I frequently use-

Yoast SEO for WordPress – As evident from the name, this is the plugin that makes your WordPress website more SEO-friendly. It is free and it lets you tweak with the title tags, meta-descriptions and many more features.

Google Analytics – This is the plugin that’s going to help track your traffic and their usual behavior. This one too is free and extremely simple to use.

Essential Grid – This is for those people who are looking to build photo galleries on their WordPress sites. It super easy and incredibly feature-rich.
