The WordPress installation flowchart follows a 24 step process where you answer simple yes/no questions regarding your installation and WordPress acumen, and get design specific tips from leading WordPress websites across the globe (including this one!).

For example, step 2 asks if you’ve chosen a domain name yet. If the answer is “yes”, you proceed to the next step. If the answer is “no” you are referred to an article from SEO Moz detailing a few tips for choosing a great domain name for your business.
