This page is for the Mid Canterbury Shuttle Service person who administers the website. It is not for public view, but has some handy videos that can be used to quickly show how to edit/change/update various pages or stories on the www.midcanterburyshuttleservice.co.nz website.
You will notice the majority of pages use the Divi page builder to more easily create a different layout, rather than the standard WordPress system e.g. where columns are needed or special design elements. The homepage uses Divi Builder to create the layout. Below there are also some fundamental guides to how the Divi Page Builder works.
There is also a guide to the Woocommerce shop which goes through how to add, edit and remove products. Please contact Medlicott Design before making any changes to the shop area, as this section is a live shop and as such changes can affect sales.
Many of these videos and their descriptions may be older than what shows in your system as WordPress constantly updates but they still explain the fundamentals.
To make it easier I have tried to use simple naming protocols for the various sections on each page. My suggestion is that you have a tab open with the public view or preview when working on pages, as easier to see what section relates to which module.
You will generally click on the menu icon in each module to edit it. Once you have seen a section and want to make something similar, you can replicate it. Click either the module clone tool to replicate the settings (then just change the text). You can also replicate rows, and whole sections. There are also numerous layouts already stored in the Divi Library including designs by Divi as well as layouts I have used already which can be imported.
Also these days there is a visual builder which may suit you rather than the way I do it via the back end. You can always create a test or demo page and have a play, as long as you don’t add it to the main menu, or just save as a draft so that Google doesn’t add it to their search database.
As always if there are any questions contact Mark @ Medlicott Design

Shopping Cart Guides – How to use the Woocommerce system installed on your website
This video covers the various functions of the shopping cart installed on your website. As this video is about an hour long it is suggested that you use the timestamps listed below to jump to a particular section you need to know more about.
The Simple video guide above showing you how to how to add products to your shop using the Woocommerce system has the basic fundamentals for adding products to your shop.
If you are relatively comfortable with using WordPress then this video will point you further along the right direction, but for more in depth detail view the main Woocommerce video.
This is a demo shop in the video that was used as display only, hence the strange product setting. I suggest setting your products to the “Simple Product” setting if it only comes in one size and price. If you have more than one size, colour or price options then you need to use the ‘variable product’ option.
