Buddha Z Needs Links

Which Links Should We Use?

Rich Connor Singing Webmaster of Shaolin Digital is deciding which links to go to from the BuddhaZ.com website for associate products.

Buddha Z has books for sale at amazon.com, itunes.com, and our own website shopping carts:

Over the last 20 years I have built product sales pages FIRST at the www.ShaolinCOM.com website.  This website had every product of every company of mine.

Now, I am considering posting and selling books at www.ShaolinCommunications.com  That is our book publisher.

Then, sell all the books and music videos at www.ShaolinRecords.com ?

Finally, movies, documentaries, and special visual products should be sold at www.ShaolinPictures.com ?

There are some product websites I built also:

If a record album by Kung Fu Cowboy is available at www.ShaolinRecords.com, Should I send them from KungFuCowboy.com to ShaolinRecords.com ?

Or should I sell the album right there on the KungFuCowboy.com website?  These are questions I need to answer as I move forward into these artist and product websites.

Website Completed

BuddhaZ.com is the first of ten WordPress websites being designed by Rich Connor Singing Webmaster of Shaolin Digital.  The goal was a simple site, with some edginess.  Buddha Z wants to avoid flattery and niceties to “get to the point.”  

The goal of this website was simplicity also.  The UPPER MENU is  only four items plus two sub-items.  Most of the links will utilize other websites already selling the products so I don’t have to build a shopping cart here.

 

Here it is. I have to open SETTINGS to create a title…

First Blog of Shaolin Digital Website

Using ELEMENTOR for page building in WordPress

I will add some more in a minute…

Interesting.  I added two HEADINGS under the ELEMENTOR created title.  I had to open the “SETTINGS” to edit the title.  The two subtitles I added look cool in the BLOG INDIVIDUAL PAGE.  But on the HOME-BLOG page of this site you can see the two sub headings are both lost as regular text in the BODY TEXT.

So I won’t add Headings?  I will just create them in the text body TEXT EDITOR?

I had problems before when I built websites on the GoDaddy servers.  I would build a page in ELEMENTOR but edit it without Elementor and I suspected that caused pages to crash.  I would rather not learn by error–but that’s the price of learning without a master.

In setting up these 55 domains (they COULD all be independent websites) at InMotion Hosting, I have striven to learn from my mistakes and by watching YouTube videos: learn some new information like going to school for web desing lessons.

Adam Preiser at WPcrafter.com gets a lot of credit for teaching me stuff.  I’ve watched almost every video he’s made in the past two years.  I just went back and found some videos by Adam that I’d seen but not learned completely from.  That’s why I want to put summaries at the end of my lessons.  One important point I missed was using the plugin MAINWP for managing multiple WordPress websites.  

In starting these websites I had to consider how I was going to build ALL my WordPress websites.  I needed to choose ONE builder program:  either Gutenberg or Elementor or Beaver Builder of Divi.

I used all of them.  Beaver Builder seemed the easiest but Elementor seemed to have more bells and whistles and so it was: ELEMENTOR is the official WordPress website builder program we’re using.  Now, I need to honor and respect them by purchasing the PRO version of Elementor.  I hope it’s cheap.

I’m still a little nervous about editing my ELEMENTOR pages outside of Elementor, such as when selecting “tags” and “categories.”  I’ve had one scary crash when a page wouldn’t load.  Somehow I rescued it… I look forward to being confident with the Elementor plugin.
