Install WordPress

I don’t provide guidance on how to do this as each host has its own method. Most good hosts tend to make it very easy to install WordPress, often at the click of a button. As I’ve already explained I will be using a sub-domain to create my Seed Site.

Consult your hosting provider to find out how to install WordPress.


Once you’ve created your default WordPress site, login to the admin dashboard.

Clean Up Dashboard

  • At a Glance
  • Quick Draft and
  • WordPress Events and News
  • Welcome

Next go to dashboard → screen options (you’ll find screen options is a tab at the top right of the page). Once there, uncheck the following options to declutter your dashboard.
