Wow, thank you very much for the excellent instructions, in which everything is easy and understandable, especially for a person with little knowledge like me. I suffered from the second method for a long time, so it didn't suit me. And the first method seemed much more convenient and more accessible for me, besides there is a lot of information about it on the Internet. I have already created my website using the first method, and now I will connect plugins. I found WordPress theme development services, and I think that I will be able to do everything much better than I expected. Thanks for the advice and the help. I think that many will appreciate this work! Good luck!
