Web design is all about the little things. There are a number of things that you can forget while creating a website.
To make sure nothing is missed, we use checklists. This checklist includes items from years of hard-earned experiences, mistakes, and lessons learned.
All the websites that we create we go through our checklist to ensure nothing is forgotten.
The Prestart Checklist is getting the website ready to start work, it is important to set everything right and have all the correct tools to do the website right and efficiently.
Important to use a different username other than admin / password
There are absolutely no SEO benefits of choosing one over another. Even Google has said that it all depends on your preference.
It is important that you stay consistent with the one that you chose at the time of starting your website.
From the WordPress dashboard, just click Settings > General.
By default, the front page of your WordPress site will display latest posts from your blog. If you would like to create a more traditional website, you can set a static “home” page instead.
Remove default content in Post and Pages, also empty trash.
Permalinks are the permanent URLs to your individual pages and blog posts, as well as your category and tag archives. A permalink is the web address used to link to your content. The URL to each post should be permanent and never change — hence the name permalink.
The Settings > Permalinks Screen allows you to choose your default permalink structure. You can choose from common settings or create custom URL structures. You must click the Save Changes button at the bottom of the screen for new settings to take effect.
A good setup up is:
Post name – An example of the post name structure is http://www.sample.com/sample-post
Make a list of plugins that the website will require and install these such as
Easy Google Fonts
Site Origin CSS
WP Show More
Kadence Theme Pro
It is important to set the Theme colours and fonts throuout the website. It is important that everything is consitant and flows through.
The Pre Launch Checklist is checking all the website design details before making the website live on the internet. It is important to have everything set up right so there are fewer amendments later on.
A favicon (short for “favorite icon”) is an icon associated with a website or webpage intended to be used when you bookmark the web page. Web browsers use them in the URL bar, on tabs, and elsewhere to help identify a website visually. Also, it is used as application icon of mobile device.

Within the plugin Yoast SEO
By default, Yoast SEO does not enable XML sitemap functionality, so you will have to turn it on. To do that go to SEO » Features and check the box to enable XML sitemap functionality.
Alt text (also known as alt tags and alternative text) are attributes of an image in the HTML of your web page. Alt text are words that describe the image.
Navigate to your Media Library and access “Attachment Details”.
In WordPress, this Title is used within the content management system to help organize your media. It is not the same as the Image Title attribute more commonly utilized on the web. An Image Title is displayed as a popup when a user hovers over the image. We don’t recommend investing in this field for SEO purposes, but it is nice to use it should you wish to add the hover state functionality to your website. To access the Image Title in WordPress, edit the image and select advanced options. Add your image title to the “Image Title Attribute” field.
Check the menu and all links are working within.
