How to set up a Photography Website? Help Me!
How to set up a photography website using WordPress, that has a portfolio and a blog section?
Don’t be surprised, I am seriously asking for help here. Sometime you gotta help me too.
I am planning to set up a photography website. I have the domain, hosting and I know I will be using WordPress. So the basic understanding is there. Since I have set up several other websites earlier, so I also know how to install WordPress and other necessary stuff.
What I need?
Everything I mentioned above is true. What I am not able to understand is how should the site structure look like – I mean from sitemap point of view. Here is what I have in mind…
- Make my main domain as my Home Page – say www.anuragbansal.com. That will be a home page showing latest images in a slider. There may also be some static content (feed) from the blog section.
- There will be links to other pages in the menu and one of them will be “blog”. Should the link be blog.anuragbansal.com or anuragbansal.com/blog???
- Now when I go to “Blog” section that will be setup like a blog where I can post various articles and update regularly.
- Rest all pages will most probably be linked to the home page and will be something like anuragbansal.com/portfolio, anuragbansal.com/contact and all. Is that right???
Question for the experts?
Now the real question I have for the experts out there is, “Do I need to install WordPress two times – one for anuragbansal.com and one for anuragbansal.com/blog. Or can I just install it once and have all blog posts linked to anuragbansal.com/blog? Please help. This is the main point I am kind of lost.
I really appreciate your help. I know Internet is the best place to ask such a question. Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that before I pull the plunger someone will try to answer my query. I have also put this question on Quora, if you wanna post the answer over there.
Thank you in advance.
