This is the next video in the series I started with how to get WordPress installed and set up. I cover a small step to make sure you don’t get hit with a bunch of comment spam – and how to deal with it after the fact if you did get a bunch of spam.

This tutorial video takes you from having no website at all to having a domain registered, a hosting plan configured and WordPress installed along with a custom theme.

I walk you through signing up for A Small Orange web hosting, picking a hosting plan, getting your domain name, installing WordPress, configuring it properly and finding a custom WordPress theme. Then I walk through a few plugins I recommend installing, including how I recommend configuring JetPack from Automattic.

It’s the longest tutorial video I’ve put together thus far and I’d love your feedback on it. Is it nice having it in one big video like this where you can pause and skip around as you figure things out or would it be better to break it up into multiple (i.e. 3 or 4) parts? Leave a comment below or send me a comment directly.

Sometimes Facebook (or other social media sites) don’t grab the right image to display when you share a post or page. Here’s a quick fix to make sure they’re grabbing the images you want.

Thanks to Carla for letting me use her site and question for this video.
