To write a post, or to edit a post, first open your dashboard.
The left hand side of the dashboard shows all the tools and functions of your site. Here’s a half-shot of your dashboard zooming in on what’s on the left column
To write a new post, click on POSTS and choose ADD NEW
This will take you to the writing area.
Write a title, write the post and choose a category. Click on one of the check boxes to choose one of the categories listed
The Categories are over on the right hand side. You can scroll down in that little categories window to see all the categories which you have
Now we’re going to SAVE that post
Over in the right hand side, on top of Categories, is the PUBLISH area.
Click on SAVE DRAFT
Once it’s saved, click on the PREVIEW button. It’s easier to click on the Preview button over in the Publish area as that will open a preview in a new window, a new tab. After you’ve previewed, you can then close that preview window.
Now you can edit that post to add stuff, remove stuff, tidy up stuff etc
Happy with the result? PUBLISH
- Keep saving – by hitting the SAVE DRAFT button- as you go along
- Don’t forget to choose a category
- After a post is published, the blue button will be changed from PUBLISH to UPDATE
