– BUILDING WEBSITES –
When you search Google for a topic related to technology and the internet you usually only want to see the most recent results. Results from 2013 might as well be from 1913, it changes so quickly.
If you don’t like the default heading sizes that come with Divi you can change them at module level. For example if you use a text module you can choose what size to make your H1’s, H2’s etc.
However, if you set your Heading sizes in the Divi theme customiser you’ll obtain a consistent look throughout your whole website.
Sometimes you’ll visit a website and find the text is too big, or too small.
You don’t have to put up with it, you can easily and quickly adjust it using the keys on your keyboard.
It’s really important to optimise images before you upload them to your website.
If you upload photos straight from your phone or camera you’ll make your website slow, which means your customers will click away before it even loads.
If you want to retarget people who visited a specific web page you firstly need to create a custom audience. In this tutorial I cover how to do that.
Alt + Tab is a cool trick for moving quickly between the things you have open on your computer.

A devsite, or development site, is useful when your site is not yet in the final place where it’s going to rest. Here’s how to do it properly.
It’s essential that you know how to backup your website and do so on a regular basis.
A lot of people are incorrectly adding alt text to Divi websites because it’s a two stage process. It can seem like you’ve added your alt text correctly but it’s actually not working.
The Divi Blog Module is not very intuitive when you first come across it.
Once you understand how it works though, you’ll love it!
The recommended size is 795 x 447 but I find the image is cropped left and right. 795 x 500 works better.
A selection of Divi fonts laid out so one is the header and one is the body…
It’s difficult to pick a font when all the fonts are written in the same font! This page lists each font in upper case, lower case and more.
Work with the options that come built in, or use the workaround if you want more, such as Instagram and YouTube
Change your login URL away from wp-admin or wp-login to help make your site more secure

There’s a struggle we all experience when we’re building a new business, where we need to figure out how much time we can allocate.
I was pretty rapt to see that even though I have only uploaded one video in the last two months, views have continued to grow.
New content needs to be uploaded, or the figures will suffer. Beware of big projects overtaking everything!
It seems astonishing that back in November I had just over 3000 channel views and now, only 5 months later it’s up to nearly 16000 views. It seems like such a lot of growth in such a short time.
The monthly review is so important. It provides encouragement about aspects that are going well, and a reminder about areas that need attention.
