Can someone help me with some design jargon..;)

Hey Everyone,

Hope you’re doing well.
I was hoping to get some advice on some search keywords to help building my dream blog/magazine.

Created 10+ wordpress sites, mostly by tweaking themes and adding logo’s. No design schooling or tool experience. But I want to ditch WP and start learn to design with the help of Webflow.

There are some many good tuts but to find the right ones you need to know some terminology… That’s what i am lacking (among everything else ;))

I was hoping someone could point me me in the right direction by telling me the best keywords to search for when building a blog like this:

Thank you very much!


Hey @jonastwt,

Welcome to Webflow! :smiley: :+1:

I also switched from WordPress to Webflow full-time in June 2014 and make a good living from it. The best way to find what you need is to firstly have a look at and examine how the template is built in designer mode. I highly recommend learning by self discovery, it’s okay if you make a mistake building your dream website, compare the source code or designer settings with a similar site and analyse the differences.

Speaking from experience, it’s helpful to know some basic html and css before you start designing with webflow / Very helpful tutorials

I wish you great success for the future.

All the best,

Thank you very much for your kind reply! I will try to follow your advice.
