To begin this guide we will be setting up the site using BlueHost who we have negotiated a coupon that you can use by clicking the link below:
Once you’ve installed the site on BlueHost if it wasn’t set up with the SSL certificate you can update the URL using the Really Simple SSL plugin from the WordPress.org repository here:
The plugin will work with your SSL certificate to ensure anyone visiting the site will have the padlock icon next to your URL which confirms the site is secure and using https.
For setting up this site we will be using the Astra theme found here:
As well as the Beaver Builder page builder to help customize it. If you use a different theme then you may have different customization options available to you. Design the site how you would like it to display for your visitors, with the Astra theme and Beaver Builder you can create almost any design you’re looking to add to your site.
To set up the online course, we recommend using LearnDash to set up the course as you’d expect from other e-learning websites. The plugin gives you an easy method to accept/return payments, group lessons, and limit access to the courses. We have a link where you can get a discount for the plugin below:
