This post is actually a series of posts that are designed to help you get the process down to building a site with Headway Themes. Each post will walk you through about 10 minutes of video filled with everything you need to get a site up and running. Each video only takes on specific parts of the whole site design so that you are working on pieces for 10 minutes at a time.
Before you get started you need to get WordPress installed. There’s several ways to get it installed but we recommend these as the best. Once you’ve got WordPress installed, you need to get Headway installed. If you haven’t purchased Headway Themes, make sure you go check out our pricing page and choose the option that best works for you.
And if you need help installing Headway, we’ve got you covered for that as well.
Once you have got WordPress and Headway running you are ready to check out this steps.
This first step is all about laying down the foundation to the site. We’re going to move fast through this, so feel free to pause the video as you are going through it. If you have questions about the video, please make sure to leave a comment on the blog post and we’ll try to help you out.
The second step is sort of a continuation to step 1. Here we’re going to take a look at adding more to our foundation.
In this video we’re going to take a look at borders and fonts of other areas to help really make the design start to come together.
In this video we’re going to take a look at working with the post meta and finding an icon for the comments post meta area.
In this video we’re going to take a look at working with the post thumbnails and getting those into a place we’re satisfied with.
Your Next Steps
When you’ve completed each step, you should have a working site that you could use. Of course we only covered one page. There’s definitely some refinements you can now make on your own to handle the inside pages of the site. But the design should mostly be there. If you have questions, please let us know!
