Working with WordPress

Posted: November 28, 2013 in Uncategorized

Just done with all mandatory assignments, next is making my online portfolio. This weeks learning activity is:

“Firstly you   need to download and install WordPress using Dreamweaver. Then publish it to   your Noroff hosting account. Create a subfolder if you wish to avvoid conflicts with previous websites.

After all the   “admin” is complete, you can start having some fun.        Choose and download   a theme that best suits you and install it. Then customise this theme in   order to create a portfolio website for yourself.”

I didn’t use Dreamweaver for this activity but used FileZilla as what was used in the video tutorial from I have watched several times and downloaded WP several times too. The downloading itself was easy since I just followed the tutorial, If I hadn’t have the problem from the ‘host,’ I would have just downloaded it and got on with customizing my site. So I gained more from losing a little time. In fact, I have been behind my assignments but I have been using my time learning and researching…it is a gain!

Here is my customize wordpress site, nothing in there yet but a single photo, added pages, got my navigation menu and changed the background.


Amidst the chaos and tragedy that is happening in the Philippines, life must continue. So here is the next part of the dog food project I am working on…POS or point of sale. Since my dog food product is homemade and will not be found in your ordinary store, the POS will consist of brochures in pet shops, online ads and its own website and also vans/trucks.

While I was working on my point of sale materials, I realized that I have missed a part of infograph/brochure making part of the project. So I made another brochure last night and an infograph tonight. Also posting some of my sketches for the labeling and packaging.
