    1st Time Wordpress Usage

    I signed up with the Deluxe Managed WordPress Plan  thinking it would be easy to use. I thought it would be a simple drag and drop type building but that's not the case. It's very overwhelming. I want to pick a theme and click and drag my edits to make the theme my own but I guess that's not an option? Is there a guide from downloading a theme to simple edits in layman terms. Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Some themes do include a drag and drop editor (Visual Composer or Others) but these are all paid themes. If you are looking for more of a click and build / drag and drop system. I suggest looking at the GoDaddy Websites + Marketing - While you may not have as many options when it comes to design & functionality - it is much more click and drag and drop.

     

    If your site needs WordPress for more advanced functionality, I suggest trying to find a local developer who can work with you on the initial buildout and then give you the flexibility to work on it moving forward. 

     

    One of the biggest things to keep in mind with WordPress is to make sure you are updating your theme  & plugins regularly as often times these updates are overlooked and that is when security issues crop up.
