Actually; this post is meant for our internal clients; however any other person may find it very useful.
Have you read my previous article on Updating your WordPress site, it’s an introduction to Posts and Pages. if you haven’t. I strongly insist you do so. Afterwards head back here to digest this.
You are quite aware that to keep your site upto date, you need to keep creating new articles.
The first step is to login into your WordPress backend dashboard: Here is how it looks like.
Afterwards; navigate to the Post menu, hover or click to reveal the sub-menus
There you are, the sub-menus are self explanatory. Now lets create a post:
Creating a post is easy and involves only three things:
- Your Topic or Title
- Contents and images
- Featured image if available.
See below and follow the notes
Now lets add an image to our article. Images are important for various reasons; to enhance the beauty of your write-up or for further illustration. Now I’ll show you the same way I added the screenshots so you can understand the tutorial better.
The Add Media button immediately before the editor bar is your Go-to-tool.
Now you have clicked the Add Media button. Your WordPress site stores images you have uploaded into a folder. that folder will be displayed to you with the option to upload more files. You can either select an existing image or upload a new one.
Afterwards select the the desired image, check the details section too.
You have the option of editing your image and performing other actions. When you are done. Click Insert into post. Remember you can easily re-size and select whichever alignment option on the image. Simply click the image and the alignment options will pop up.
And that is all about inserting an image into your article.
Basically we have just created a post; how about for more options. The widget section by the right side of you page contains some extended features which are explained below:
We are done.
And in-case your WordPress Post layout is configured separately; we call it Custom Post Type. Not to worry, simply click on the custom Post e.g. News and repeat the same process.
Most of the times, Zion peers at the computer screen, tweaking codes, analysing and calculating figures, manipulating the screen and digging deep into the World Wide Web. A combination of many different things in one thing. You don’t have to bother understanding that.
