As you may have noticed, this is a WordPress website, using the excellent Avada theme, which I’ve been using since start of 2013.

This page of WordPress resources may be useful to other WordPress website users and also those who are thinking of getting a WordPress website created – such as my WordPress Website All In One package. These resources include my WordPress guides and posts, links to useful websites all about WordPress, WordPress communities, forums, theme sources and more.

I have also added resources on moving a WordPress website from http to https.
