How to Setup a new Sub-Site
It’s actually not that hard and we can show you how with pictures to illustrate just in case you need a visual. Just follow the instructions below and you will have your own wordpress site up and running in minutes.
There are two parts, one is your Account Registration the other is your Sub-site Registration.
Creating Your Account
Username: This is where you will enter a username for your account that you will login with.
Email Address: This is where you will enter the email that will receive notifications from WordPress and you can also use to login instead of Username.
- Give me a site! This is the default option that you will want to setup your very own wordpress sub-site (pick this!).
- Just a username, please This option will allow you to create an account but not give you a wordpress site (you can set one up later though if you wish).
After you have filled in the information click the “NEXT” button.
Creating Your Sub-Site
The next page you will see is this…
Site Name: This is where you will enter a sub-site domain name, you can put your name, your company name or whatever you want. No spaces, www, .com or pixelinity required, just a name that’s all
Site Title: This is where you will enter a short description of what your website is about.
Site Language: The default is English-Canada, however you can choose whatever language you like.
- Yes This is the default option that you will want to make sure your site is visible on search engines like Google (pick this!).
- No This option will make sure your site cannot be found in search engines
After you have filled in the information click the “SIGNUP” button.
The Final Result
After you have completed the above steps, you will be presented with a confirmation page like this…
