    Hello,

    I am wondering how exactly I can design a website to how I want it.

    Is something like swagvault.com hard to design/create?

    What do I need to learn?

    Thanks.

    The website you gave as an example probably uses a CMS ( google it ). If you want to design an website from scratch you have to start with the design(Photoshop) and then code it using css and html.

    In video 1 I cover all the basics of setting up a domain, getting a domain name and installing WP.


    In video 2 I cover all the steps you should take to customize your WP site so it looks professional and not like a blog. And I have also included some resources that I use to get high quality things like web content, headers and logos!

    You must walk before you can run.

    This can do many things.

    Code:

    Depends on what you mean by design?

    Design can mean anything like

    - code
    - "draw"

    But I assume you mean something more like
    create.

    Your best bet is to start with Wordpress. Look
    for some free themes within the wordpress
    theme area once you have uploaded the frame-
    work to your site.

    If that still doesn't work, I'd check out a site
    like
    http://themeforest.net/ a lot of the themes
    are available for free download here on BHW
    but if you buy the theme there you might get
    support in setting it up, and it's the right thing
    to do (if you don't have the money, start with
    the free download and once you make a bit, go
    and buy the theme).

    Hope that helped,

    Sampler

    Learn the basics first before you could go for a high end one. Video samples can be helpful for you.
