The Architect’s WordPress Website Launch Guide

Step Three – Customize Your Website

Good job, now your site is live! Here is where you will use the username you wrote down from above. To access your new site, go to [username].wpengine.com . This is what your clients will see when they visit your site.

What you see here is the default WordPress “look”. Now we need to customize your site; here’s how:

Open a new browser window and put it on the right of your new web page, like this:

New WordPress Site

Your New WordPress Site

Direct the new browser window on the right to http://[username].wpengine.com/wp-admin. Login using your username that you wrote down from above and the password you chose.

This will take you to the WordPress “Dashboard”. On the left-hand menu, hover over “Settings” -> “General”:

Wordpress Dashboard

For “Site Title”, enter the name of your firm [ex. Best Architects]. For “Tag Line”, enter a brief description of your site [ex. The Best Architects on the Planet].

Go back to the left browser window and reload the page to see the changes. Looking good. And that’s it!

Congratulations! Your new WordPress web page is now live!

And now the fun part begins – making your website truly yours. When you are ready for this, click here to begin.
