We’re starting a new series today called “Creating A Better Website”.
Naturally all our designs run on the WordPress platform and we’re excited to be able to help improve your site design, speed and much more in our new series!
The first thing we want to make important is a simple one, hiding comments on your web pages. Why is that important? If you’re using one of our site designs or in fact any WordPress site design, then you might know that WordPress was originally a blog platform. WordPress over the years has melded into a platform built for any kind of site you desire, merging a blog into a website.
If you’re using a design like ours which is not only a website but also includes a blog design, it’s called a “blog site”. When the two are made together you’ll want to keep your blog posts, blog archives and categories, etc separate from your “main” site. Your WordPress pages won’t need blog comments or trackbacks. It distracts from the page, doesn’t help your SEO any and makes your site look unprofessional when your main site pages are supposed to be for portfolio purposes. There’s no reason a person should comment on say, your about page.
It’s a good idea to turn those comments off for your actual site pages. To do that we’ll start by logging into WordPress and checking out our tutorial HERE. There you’ll find the full tutorial in detail with step by step instructions!
