Early Challenges Setting Up My Kay Johnson Art Website!

Mar 31, 2019 | 2 comments

WordPress

Despite being a web developer setting up this website has been far from an easy task. I am not very familiar with WordPress for a start, and could have coded this site in half the time it has taken so far!
So why have I opted for WordPress? The answer is Plugins… When it comes to Plugins, this is where you score on time.

 

DIVI Theme

I chose the paid for DIVI Theme. DIVI provides a lot of features, flexibility and makes editing pages very easy. Again there is a learning curve with DIVI!
I was going nuts setting up just a very simple and basic Home page, despite some really good tutorials on the Elegant Themes website, until I came across www.diywithdivi.com I have no idea who this person is but I could hug them! Their You Tube videos have saved me hours and hours of frustration!

 

SiteGround Logo
Interestingly, www.diywithdivi.com also recommend SiteGround as the web host, as does Paul Foxton from www.learning-to-see.co.uk
Until recently I was using Hostgator, but have now moved to SiteGround. So far I have found SiteGround much faster both when loading websites and working in WordPress, and their support is infinitely superior by a mile.

    Once your site is set up you can focus on your art. It looks nice. Clean and simple.

      Thank you Cate. It has taken ages, mainly due to a lack of time.

Why Kay Johnson Art?

I have always wanted to learn how to paint, ever since I became aware of my uncle's wonderful landscape oil paintings.
I am very much a beginner. This website is a diary of my journey as I learn to become a decent artist.
