WordPress site development question

Hope this is the correct forum for this question. Apologies if not.

I am about to sign up for the AffiloBlueprint package, and would like to know how you do the WordPress web site development during the course?

Is it done 'live' on the actual web site, or do you advise doing the development locally after installing WAMP?

Hi,

With new sites, it is fine to do the setup on the "live" site as no one is looking at it yet anyways. No need for making it more complicated.

Hi apex2000,

I apologize for the delay in responding to your thread. We currently do not have support over the weekends.

Esolutions is correct. Everything is done one the live site. Some "techie" members can choose to set up their site on a testing server first, or if you have your site hosted on Affilotheme Lite Hosting, you can choose to work on the site while it is on Staging mode. But for most, everything is done live.

Hi Nancy,

Please email us with your site URL through the contact form in our support page so we can look further into the issue.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hope that helps. All the best!

I'v been having issues with wordpress, when I change and save the theme template it doesn't want to upload to website. It keeps the same header that I would like to eliminate. I un boxed all checkmarks and it still gives me the same result. Please advise.

Thank you,

Nancy

Hello, I'm new at this but I do know how to work with Wordpress, Dreamweaver, or just plain old html in Notepad++.

My question is, how do I know if I should build a website or use Wordpress? It seems I would have more flexibility with my ads if I design my own pages rather than use Wordpress. Is that true? I need to have a whole set of different ads come up on every page in order to keep them relevant to the service or product I'm promoting. Does anyone have any advice in the area? Thanks in advance, Sam

This is a new topic. Therefore, according to good netiquette, you should start your own new thread, not "piggyback" on someone else's.

That said, the reasons I prefer WordPress are many. Much like you, I'm expert in Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS.

1. Develop sites in 1/2 the time (and for client projects, 1/2 the cost).

2. Almost anything you can imagine can be done using one of the thousands of WordPress plugins (even stuff you wouldn't know how to do in a static site)

3. If you learn PHP and edit your WordPress theme's CSS, and also use inline CSS in your posts and pages, you gain back a lot of the flexibility lost to WordPress.

4. If you use a good theme, it will be rich in widgets, like the "plain text widget", where you can use ad hoc HTML and CSS to create stuff inside areas of your home page, sidebars, etc.

5. You can even sell themes or plugins you develop for WordPress

6. Mark Ling and Affilorama recommend WordPress and many of their courses and tutorials require it.

Hope this helps...

Thanks Jim, Sorry about the post I'm new at this type of thing. I'm still considering everything, but I think for now I'm leaning towards building my pages in notepad and using php. Thanks again for your advice.

Welcome to Affilorama!

I agree with Jim. We recommend Wordpress when building affiliate marketing sites because it has become the industry-standard. It is also easy to use and flexible. There are free plugins you can use as well as free themes to customize your site. :)
