Step-by-step instruction videos for WordPress

Congratulations on your new WordPress website.  These videos will give you a guided tour of the administration (or back-end) section of your website and will show you how to create new pages using posts & pages, as well as inserting & editing media.

We are constantly uploading new videos & updating the current information as updates to WordPress are released.  If we haven’t covered something you are trying to do on your site, please contact us at so we can provide you with assistance.

Visual Composer

Most websites that we develop uses some form of webpage builder.  Currently (as the www continues to change & improve) our favourite is Visual Composer due to it’s ease of use & it’s ability to integrate with most WordPress themes & plugins.  More importantly, our clients love it!
