Lesson Tasks CMS – Customizing a WordPress

As challenging as I find coding to be, CMS is the one that really gets me completely confused. It seems to be many different ways to edit the code, some more complicated than others. I ended up following one of the more complicated ways, in order to open it in dreamweaver. This project had to be abandoned, and instead i tried to find an easier way. I simply upgraded my one.com plan to include wordpress hosting and continued from there.

Here is the parent theme offered by elementor: «hello theme» I found it appealing and a practical start to the assignment.

I then proceeded to make a child theme, where I edited the some of the overall code, but also on specific items on the page, adding the hooks from lesson 3 and finding two of my own finding.

1. List hooks. I chose this even though it is a sort of hidden function that does not affect the user, it can be benefitial if in a collaboration.

2. Making it possible to mark comments as spam. As the page will have a comment function this is essential, as some people have too much spare time and hate to give.

Here is the result:

PS: I could not access/ find the underlying to remove the empty image icon to the right…..

I hope to implement this newfound knowledge to use it in future portfolio websites as it quite handy.

Thoughts on SEO: SEO is an alien term to me, but there are essentially two main areas to be wary off, the SEO on- and off page. Namely, what keywords you use in your code(metatags), the off-page part; «This part of the equation involves building relationships and creating content people want to share». You cannot be in complete control over this part, but with enough legwork, it will prove to be a «make or break» part of your website building.
