    Wordpress is a content management system, not a design management system. If you want to develop designs for wordpress you have to build custom themes with html, css, and php templates.

    There are so-called page builder plugins but they mostly suck. There is no official standard wordpress page builder.

    For the most part to build websites as a non-developer you buy a theme and install it, and you work within the layouts and options that the theme has provided for you and you can’t do much beyond that.

    There are tons of courses on Udemy on WordPress, html, css, and php.
    Here’s one for example: https://www.udemy.com/course/css-tutorial-for-beginners-style-your-wordpress-templates/
