    HI Jamie

    Hope you are well. Ive just seen your video on installing wordpress for an existing site – but i cant find it now. Can you send me a link?

    Im going to start building my new site. Ive checked (and you may remember this) my temp url link is already taken. so for me to install a new site do you still recommend the following or is there a better method now?

    1) create a new url – for example uistestsite.uk.com
    2) using xtend in heart install wordpress on to teh tempporary url associated with that name – in my case 217.199.187.71/uistestsite.uk.com/
    3) build the site there and then follow your video to change the dns a records of my site to that – plus the other steps in your video?

    I HAVE A QUESTION

    does this mean i have to host the uistestsite.com too? as well as uis.uk.com (my original site?

    will this make seo less efficient

    Hi Jamie

    I think thsi does make sense

    My domian uis.uk.com is controlled by Timico – for historic resaons and i have chosen to leave it there as that feels simpler – i can send them the information

    and just to check i understand

    when i clicked on the temporary url link in my new hosting package i get

    http://217.199.187.71/uistestsite.uk.com/

    so i would send them that information, correct?

    thanks and have a good easter

    Hi jamie

    thanks for this and today

    One question about domain mapping

    if i map my new site to my existing domain

    what makes the old site disappear and the new wordpress site appear instead?

    when i read Hearst explanation of domain mapping it doesnt explain that that will happen

    Thansk

    Hi jamie

    Hope you are well

    I have now got control of my web site hosting – uis.uk.com

    I have askled Heart if they can set up a temporary url for me but they tell me to do thsi

    Hi Austin,

    Thanks for your reply.

    You can set up a new WordPress website in a new folder in your websites directory.

    Once you have done all of this you could create a redirect to that folder so that when visiting the uis.uk.com domain it will redirect people to the new website you create.

    If you have any more questions please let me know.

    Jamie – can you tell me what is best to do. I am worried about making a mistake

    Thansk Austin

    If i click on install wordpress it gives me the following options in extend

    Installation Directory: /home/sites/uis.uk.com/public_html/
    Website Addresses:

    Home


    http://79.170.44.112/uis.uk.com/

    Thansk for your help

    Thanks jamie and i look forward to seeing the tutorial

    I guess Heart would be familiar with all of this as Im using them

    last question

    I will do the site in two stages. When im happy with stage one i would like to release it to the world

    but then i would like to do a woo commerce shop. How can i work on this shop in the background and only upload & release it when i am happy. Is there some way of keeping a development site in the background?

    Finally do you have a place left on your woo commerce course in london?

    Hi Jamie

    Thansk. I think teh full width is better

    Ive turned on full width slider in my setting but my slider is going full width like yours

    Is that because my pics are not the right proportions

    Last night when i was working on this site. It was incredibly slow. It would take 5 minutes approx to visit the site from WP and vice versa

    Heart said they had a problem but as a precaution i also turned off and deleted a couple of plugins. Can plugins cause tis type of slow down or do u think it was just the heart problem

    Thansk again

    Thanks jamie

    I want the menu to look like your menu in video 3 of your canvas masterclass

    ie an equal gap on the left and right side which seperates the primary menu from the faint line of the box layout. i dont want the menu to run full width as it is doing

    Hope this makes sense

    The easiest way of saying this is i want the menu to be the same width as the slider as that will give a good symetrical design also lining up with the left edge of my logo

    Thansk very much

    Thanks again
