How-to Make A WordPress Website 2016 – 10 Minutes & 100% FREE

At this point, I don't recommend people use the Tesseract theme. It's really a dead end theme.

A better alternative is the free Astra Theme, which allows you to edit the footer with ease.

Also, you may need to install and run a free plugin named Switch To Astra to make all your page builder built pages work out of the box.

And if you really want to see something amazing, check out the free Astra Sites plugin.

I have tutorials on all of this.

  1. Hi Adam, I’m so happy I found you! I’m rebranding/building my VA business. My current site is a DIY site on Network Solutions from 2014. I’m kinda new to WP and struggling with the cost of themes (Elegent / Divi) and page builders (Beaverbuilder / Elementor). Is this 2016 theme compatible with Elementor?? I have already used the free version of Elementor and love it!! Thanks so much in advance!!

  2. Thank Adam for all these great videos, I have learn a lot, God bless you and family, a big thank again from London 😀

      To change the color of the button you need to use CSS. I just released a video on CSS, it’s on my YouTube channel right now but I’m in a create a blog post on it sometime this afternoon.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Thank you for notifying me of this. It was actually a problem with me migrating to an SSL connection on the website and my platform that sends the emails out. It should be resolved now.

  3. Hi there,
    have a nice day. I want to create a portfolio website with the salient. Is it ok for beaverbuilder. Please help me for that.


  4. Hi Adam, would like to congratulate you for how far you came and successful you are. I would like to know i am starting a new site however i would liketo know if you have a template that i can use that has a menu on the right hand side

    1. Adam from WPCrafter

      You mean a horizontal menu on the right? Or the right in the header? If it is the right in the header, you can use this template for that.

  5. Thanks Adam for the great video and GREAT DFY WP Website 2016!
    The finished product looks great in Chrome and Firefox but less so in IE 11.
    Here’s what I’m seeing in IE 11:
    Your WPCrafter icon does not show on any page in the Header on the left side. It just doesn’t show at all.
    On the front page, the JOIN NOW button is underneath the top heading and the text blocks at the bottom of the Home page are jumbled up (it’s not laid out in 2 nice rows and 3 nice columns).
    On the About page, same as the Home page with the jumbled blocks. Those jumbled blocks also don’t do the nice fade in.
    The links on the footer of each page are not lined up in one row but are on two rows.
    The pictures don’t fade in on the Services page.

    Are these errors I have made or IE errors or errors with my hosting site. I have switched over to inMotion yet but I will be.

    Thank you!

  6. Hi. thanks for the tutorials that you are posting very helpful.
    I wanted to ask:

  8. I was looking for something quick built and also within my range but here you are provided absolutely FREE Thanks

    1. Adam from WPCrafter

      I would never use a free hosting account. You get what you pay for and free in the hosting world is a complete disaster.

  9. Hey Adam, Thanks for the educative video, it has help me a lot to build my brother website. I would want you to help me on how to add plugins for Online radio streaming , sound cloud and donation button; Please help me out.

    1. Adam from WPCrafter

      There is a really good donation plugin named Give. For soundcloud, the integration is already in WordPress, just paste the link to the content and WordPress handles the rest. As far as a streaming audio solution, I am really not that familiar so I can’t help there.

  10. Adam,
    The story…I started hosting with INMOTION a couple mos. back…got frustrated and GOT MY MONEY BACK BECAUSE THEY GARENTEED I’D BE HAPPY…I actually spend a lot of time being “frustrated” because I’m a 69 yr old no-techie ” fellow with Asbugers who has a lot to say but about an “UNSEEN WORLD” but forever having a hard time saying it….. THEN…..(drum roll….thick suspense!!!) … WHAM-BAM!!! I watched your videos… re-upped with INMOTION……downloaded your “beaver-frontload-fire work looking” DFY site and I really think it’s gonna happen!!! So Now I’ll learn more about Beaver’s free front-loader and start filling my new DFY site with the “never before imagined” ….keep an eye out cause I’m using it all to start my mechanicsofsalvation web site. (I’m really excited!!)

  11. Thanks Adam,

    I watched the vid and everything worked out fine.

    Thanks for all the work you do for us WP dummies…

  12. Hi Adam,

    Im very new to WP but am already learning a lot from you. Thank you very much for that.

    I downloaded the theme and try to install but WP gives an error saying it can’t install the theme cos it has no style.css stylesheet.
    Am I doing something wrong? I tried to figure it out myself but am a bit stuck.

    Can you please help me?

    1. Adam from WPCrafter

      Your issue is covered in the Help section of my site. But please, after you requested the resources file, you were put on a page that walks you though setting everything up. Please take some time to watch that video.

  13. Hi,
    I just filled out my name and email in order to download the new Tersserac Theme, but I have not received any email. Please help

  14. hi, I purchased the tessseract1 theme a few weeks back and still developing my site. Can this theme upgrade on top of the previous one? Also my biggest challenge has been being able to g
    Highlight the current page so the user always knows which page menu they are on. Does this update help with that?

    1. Adam from WPCrafter

      I don’t completely follow what the challenge is with the first version. I will say that the newer is much better in every way. That being said, depending on how you created your page content. If it was created in the SiteOrigin page builder, then your content is stuck in there.

  15. Caroline-Sakura

    Adam thank you for the free wordpress template. It’s beautiful, easy to upload, very slick and professional and a complete godsend for me.

  16. Looks excellent- especially for someone like me who is not much above clueless on these things. Have signed up for it and trying to get existing website clean or scrapped . Need to find out how to get fresh wordpress for my domain so that I can proceed.

    1. Adam from WPCrafter

      Hi Susan, do you mean that it is not playing straight through? The video is hosted on YouTube, perhaps there is an issue with your internet connection?

  17. Hey Adam,

    It seems this theme doesn’t support a sidebar when viewing a single post.
    Works great for pages but not for posts.

  18. Made for you : You say one can not put text on a picture Ok You should how to change the back colour for the text to green and red But why can one not use a see- throw sheet so that it does not colour the back picture Pleae

  19. I enjoyed the video, very informative.
    In the video you mentioned another video that explains how to install the site, is there a link to that video I was unable to find it anywhere.
    I also tried to open the zip files but they are wpress files and I am not sure what program reads this type of file, possibly ServerPress.
    Anyway I need some help locating the installation video.

    1. Adam from WPCrafter

      Just check the receipt that you were emailed. There is a link to the video right there. Also you can visit your user dashboard on this site.

    1. Adam from WPCrafter

      Yea that, I think, is generated by a WordPress plugin you can buy on CodeCanyon. I forget the name, but it was pretty cheap. A year ago I implemented it for someone.
