Great vids…Iearned a lot. Thanks!
What I do not understand is why you kept the home pages and extra pages when exporting. I mean: arent the new page and the blogpage enough to provide theme layout? Your site now seemed to have a page just showing headers etc???
Writing the tekst of the pages in wordpress and using the layout elements when necessary from that one created page isnt that what is needed? Using the elements which are needed for every page?
As you notice I am fairly new and still trying to understand the difference between a theme and a final site. Between whether to build the whole site in Artisteer or whether to finish in wordpress and use the layouttheme of Artisteer.
I hope you can provide an answer and help me out of css-misery…
Glad to hear it!
There was no reason I kept the extras. I initially created them to make sure I liked the nav when it had multiple links, I just didn’t bother removing the extras because ultimately I’d be deleting it all anyway.
You are correct with your guess.
And I recommend doing as little as possible in Artisteer. I don’t ever export content from Artisteer to WordPress because it only creates headaches for me.
Hope that helps!
Hi Zach, and thank you so much for these great tutorials, it really helps!
There is only one thing I didn’t understand…. you showed the tutorial on a page without too much cells and such, and I can fix what you showed with images and such, but for some reason, the cell information looks quite different in wordpress than in artisteer, and I don’t know where to fix it….
please help me know how to fix cell information to show in wordpress like it’s supposed to.
thank you very much
Can you link to what you’re talking about? And I’d say to almost definitely fix it in WordPress if they look different, as the way it looks in WP is what really matters.
Really very good tutorial, although I am an experienced Artisteer user and have been using version 4 for a few months, I did learn some new stuff and given that this is a FREE tutorial, I would just like to thank you.
Awesome, glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks so much for your fabulous tutorials! I have been using Artisteer for a few years now but recently upgraded and was a little list with all the drastic changes! Plus, I’m no professional designer so it really helped me to hear your tips about design! I hope you create more videos, specifically on WordPress and/design in general! I will watch them all!
One thing I wondered after watching this last video…have you tried Templateer yet? I have had it for awhile and love the extra functionality it gives me in WordPress! The recent upgrade is so much easier to install and I love that the recent upgrade of Artisteer has incorporated many of Templateer’s old features, so Bud’s latest upgrade of Templateer added even more great extra features! I’ve yet to explore them all! Would love it if you used Templateer and created similar videos to demo it’s features, since Bud doesn’t yet have any…and I just love the simplicity and style of your videos! (And I don’t mind the dog noises, lol!)
Anyway, keep up the great work and I’m sure I’ll be in touch again!
Oh one last thing…even though I’ve been designing sites in my (very limited) spare time for 12 years…I’ve only scratched the surface of design. I’m a homeschooling mom first and foremost (my kids have even played around with Artisteer…my 7yr old just designed a new blog with Artisteer this week!) and have never found any really great series of videos that will help me learn more about the nitty gritty of good web design…wondering if you recommend any sites or videos (free, preferably)?
Hi Tina! I’ve never used Templateer, but I’ve heard good things. I’ll put it on my bucket list to look in to.
And for design, I think a lot of it really comes down to observing what you like and trying to re-create it. That’s how I got good at it, but obviously learning that way isn’t as efficient as a course. I’ll letcha know if I find one or create one.
