website before app?

  1. Hello everyone,

    I downloaded the wordpress application. I wanted to create my site directly there but it doesn't seem to work.

    Does anyone have an explanation please? Do I have to go through a computer to create the site before I can modify it via iphone? because mine is unavailable at the moment.

    Thank you.

  2. Hi there!

    Through the app you can create a WordPress.com site.

    To add a new site, first log into a WordPress.com account and then navigate to the My Sites tab and click on the + sign in the top to add a new site. Select the option to add a new WordPress.com site and this will take you through the steps to add a new site.

    Once you've added the site on the mobile app, you can log in from the browser at https://WordPress.com/login and select the site in question from the My Sites list. Here you can add a plan and domain to your site.

    Otherwise, you'll have to first setup a WordPress.org self-hosted site which will require you to first find a new host and get a domain for your site. There is a guide on how to do this which you can find here: https://www.wpbeginner.com/guides/.

    Let me know if you have any questions about this. I'm happy to clarify further if necessary. :)

  3. thank you for your response.
    I looked quickly at the link but I will take the time to read it carefully.

    In fact I'm still hesitating:
    - start with the blog and then create the site later according to the needs and the evolution of my business.
    or
    - create the site directly with the integrated blog
    My question: is it possible to go through the blog first? Will it be easy to integrate the site?

  4. Hi there!

    A website can both be a blog or more of a business site. It all depends mostly on how you configure your content and which theme you use.

    The first thing to do is to create a site, then you can create a blog page for the site and have different pages for it.

    There's a great guide with some tips on this for any WordPress.com site you might create here: https://wordpress.com/support/do-i-need-a-website-a-blog-or-a-website-with-a-blog/.

    I hope that clarifies things for you, but let us know if you're still unsure.

    Thank you!

  5. Thank you very much for your explanations. I'll go ahead with the project starting with the website then, and I'll come back here if I'm stuck again.
