UNDER CONSTRUCTION – - -
When you decide to make a website the first step should be to define what its purpose is. Then you should decide what functionality it needs to have to fulfill this purpose. Our specialized themes and state-of-the-art plugins can make it jump through almost any hoop you design for it.
Think of your new OneEarthSystem website as a starting point for you to customize in any way you want. Many people make the mistake of thinking first of the ‘look’ of the site, the images and the colors of the fonts and backgrounds, but these are actually the easiest elements of a website to change to your requirements! That’s a bit like choosing a house based on the paintings hanging on the walls and the color of the walls, and ignoring the actual style of the house and its features such as swimming pools and fireplaces.
It is important is to pick a starting point that works well for the core functionality you need, and also has the sort of layout you require, as these things are more difficult to change (but not impossible). Your website will not really be your website until you add the content and functionality to make it do what you want it to do.
The one thing we cannot do is decide for you what the purpose of your website should be! However, it is worth looking at some of the major possibilities…
Wordpress has two important components called Themes and Plugins. Generally a site can only have one theme active as this decides the layout, the colours, and some of the core functionality of the site. Plugins are easilly installed addons that extend the functionality of your site in almost any way you can imagine. We are very proud of our range of OES Themes and Plugins!
Lets start with the Themes. There is a huge commercial theme industry that will try offer you a range of millions of themes to choose from. We have collected and offer our members a wide range of WordPress themes. Some of these focus on the look of your site, but many of them offer radically different core functionality that needs to be built into the theme rather than being supplied as an afterthought by a plugin.
VideoPress – a Youtube lookalike that is optimized for creating a video library
Actionpress – effortlessly creates gorgeous sales pages & email capture pages
Authorpress – creates a superbly organized multi-author blog for allowing contributors to your site to be properly showcased
Pinpress – creates an image site with built in social networking links, similar to the hugely successful social network Pinterest
Facepress – links in to your Facebook account
All our plugins can be installed on your site for free. Some of them are very powerful and add as much functionality as a theme does. Some of them are simple little addons that make some aspect of your site work or look better.
For instance MemberRocket and Video Rocket combine to make a very user friendly membership site for selling content, downloadable or streaming video, digital products and more.
Not all of of the plugins will work together, and not all of them will work with all themes – but if it can be done by a plugin then they will often blow your sox off with how easy they make complex things!
If you look under ‘Supercool Plugins’ on the top navigation menu you will find we have over 100 state-of-the-art plugins sorted into categories – or click here to browse the whole collection in a new tab
So once you have chosen your OES theme and the plugins you like, how do you get help with changing everything to be just as you want it? Easy!
Its worth learning just the basic WordPress functionality like creating posts and pages. This and anything else you would like to learn is easily found by Googling ‘Wordpress tutorials’ plus a description of the problem.
But for more complex things, or if you really dont want to do it yourself… then what we recommend is to very cheaply hire people top do it for you.
One website you should know about is www.Fiverr.com. At Fiverr you can shop around for people who will fix any WordPress problem for $5, or even skilled programmers and designers who work for $5 an hour.
We also have our own recommended OES outsourcers who are available for $10 an hour.
You will find more info about both these options in your O.E.S. members area. What’s most important for now is to know that you can easily learn to manage your site yourself if you want to… and that it is very affordable to hire someone to change anything for you if you prefer to do it that way!
