In this modern world, learning to code in order to design websites is now optional. I never knew this! I had to learn some HTML; CSS; and PHP. That is no longer the case. You can create virtually any website without having to learn code.

Introduction To Web Design
.
Some hours ago, I promised to give tutorials on web design. I reminded you that you can create eye-catching websites without writing a single line of code. Today, those who independently code their websites from scratch run the risk of being hacked. Plus, such websites are usually not visually appealing.
.
What Experts Say
Learning to write code is not necessary when starting out. A google search will surely convince you! No one has said that learning to write code is a poor decision. But it takes a lot of studies to acquire coding skills that will help you code websites from scratch.
.
What You Were Told
You were told that the best way to learn web design is by learning code. Take it from me, if you agree with that believe, then u'll have to spend at least 2 years learning to code. I will keep posting here to help you learn how to design good-looking websites! Keep reading!

Tools You'll Need To Learn Web Design
In order to learn web design, you don't need highly sophisticated tools. You won't even need to purchase any software. A handful of tools are freely available. Here are the 3 basic tools you'll need:
1. A Content Management System
2. A Local Server and
3. A Computer
I will discuss each of those tools separately.
.
How Long Will It Take To Learn?
You can never graduate as a web designer. There will always be something new for you to learn. I started designing virtual websites since 2011, but I can't say I've learnt everything.
.
Types Of Websites You Can Design
When you learn web design, you will be able to create websites similar to:
1. Nairaland.com
2. Facebook.com
3. Jumia.com/Konga.com
4. Jiji.com.ng
5. Etc.
.
Summary
In our subsequent discussions, I will explain the above-listed tools (one for each post). You can't afford to miss

Introduction To Content Management Systems (CMS)
Last time I mentioned 3 basic tools you'll be using to learn web design. So in this discussion, I'll be introducing you to the first tool - Content Management System.
.
What Is A Content Management System?
In simple terms, a content management system is a web-based software mainly used for developing websites or organizing its contents. Although there are different types of content management systems (some free and some paid), 3 have gained huge popularity over the years. They are:
1. Wordpress
2. Joomla! and
3. Drupal
Out of these three most popular ones, Wordpress has gained the widest popularity due to its ease of use. It is very powerful and with it, you can build just about any website. Best of all, it's free!
.
Summary
Let's pause! In our next discussion, I'll be telling you about Local Servers. I will also tell you more about Wordpress. See you!

Second Tool: The Local Server
In our last discussion, I introduced the first tool you'll need to learn web design - a content management system or CMS. Physically, the main difference between a CMS and most computer programmes is that a CMS works through a third party software. That third party software must either be running in a "real" web server or it must be locally installed in your own computer.
.
Here Is The Local Server You'll Need
There are different local servers you can make use of. However, my assumption is that you are using a Windows PC. If that's the case, please make a google search and download a programme called:
EasyPHP (approximately 18MB).
After downloading it, leave it in your desktop. Do not install it yet. We'll do that together, hur? Good!
.
Summary
I am trying to be synoptic. In our next discussion, I will explain the third and last tool you will need. See you!

Opistorincos, thanks for following. I visited your blog: grindaily.org. It's a potentially great blog, but it needs to be overhauled. The theme or template you used is not responsive.

Third Tool: Your Computer
.
In the last discussion, I introduced a local server as one of the three tools you'll need to learn web design. A CMS will run in either a real or local server. But the question is: where will a local server run? Ofcourse it will run in a computer. You need your "personal" computer. Forget about using a cyber cafe.
.
Summary
We have identified the three basic tools you'll need to learn web design. For a quick remind, they are:
.
1. A CMS
2. A Local Server and
3. Your Computer.
.
In our next discussion, we will be talking about Wordpress CMS.

Opistorincos, the truth is this: you don't have to create a mobile version of your website or blog. That's an old way of designing websites.
.
With modern solutions, websites can be designed to look great in all devices. Before I give you my recommendations, I will like to know which platform you used to design your blog.
.
Did you design your blog with your host's website builder? Or did you use blogger or Tumblr? Was it Wordpress you used? Let me know, and I will advice you!

I designed the site on blogger's website builder

Opistorincos:

I thought as much. But you don't have to continue with blogger because thousands of people have left that blogging platform.
.
I will recommend Wordpress because it gives you the power to design stunning websites or blogs. Blogger is owned by google. But even google currently recommends Wordpress.
.
There are two "versions" of Wordpress: and wordpress.org. With , your blog or website MUST be "hosted" by wordpress. But with wordpress.org, only you will decide where to host your blog or website.
.
In a nutshell, I will advice you to divert your blog from Blogger to Wordpress. If you have more questions, I will be glad to answer them. Goodluck!

Prospecmarley:

Prospecmarley, it is very possible! Wordpress has a lot of tools to help you design ANY website.
.
To design a website like konga.com, you'll need a premium theme for e-commerce websites. You'll also need to integrate a secure payment system to help you receive payments.

For secure payment gateway, i have been experimenting with voguepay cos its cheap and easy to set up (though havent known how to incoporate it into my WooCommerce plugin).
Would need more options that accepts Nigerian credit cards with lesser costs
