How To Make A One Page Website With WordPress

Incredibly lax security – Started to sign up, but stopped immediately when I was asked to select an account password. Requirement is an all-numeric password, up to 8-digits. This is ridiculous. Complex passwords should be a REQUIREMENT, not DISALLOWED. For those who don’t know, all-numeric passwords, especially short ones, are easiest to attack. If your web site is compromised, it can be used to distribute malware, defame your reputation, promote other organizations, and more, all without your knowledge. No way I’d host my business’s web site on this provider!

    Hey Tom, great job with the video. Just one question. It's easier to implement SEO by adding pages but how would I implement SEO with the Yoast plugin within this theme since the only way to edit the design is through the appearance menu?

    Hi, Tom, you did a powerful straight forward teaching on the video, it was a big shave off time for me.
    But the theme ZERIT LIFE after l uploaded as a blog page to mTy site. i tried all l could at the backend
    it shows normal, but at the frontend, it appears with the word BLOG written on the theme.
    Would l do Tom?

    I was looking for help on how to create a single Web Page using wordpress. Simply a Web page that has 2 buttons for people to select a product tour of the my products or access the site as a potential business owner . I got lost in your video , it is great however outdated – i assumed the apps would not have changed but Sumo is one where linking to mail chimp is not free , that is a great tool to have to create a list , hower now i need to rethink my site and see if you actually show how to create a Simple Web Site !

    Posted at 02:17h, 13 July

    Hi Tom, Since Sumo is not free and I'm also having trouble because Goofle analytics isnt working for me….would installing Jetpack be the easiest solution since it has an email integration (i think thats what Sumo does) and an SEO analytics built in? Is it hard to use?
    I like being able to follow along with you. I'll subscribe . Thanks.
