You’re live! Nice. We’ve put together a little post to introduce you to the WordPress and get you started. You can manage your content by signing in to the admin area at “your-site.com/wp-admin/”. When you arrive, you can go to Posts to either add new post or edit existing one from the list.
WordPress uses a text editor which is similar to the one in MS Word. Essentially, it’s a user-friendly way to manage your post formatting as you write!
Writing in the editor is really easy. In the panel above, you will see a row of buttons that can be used to format the content. Where appropriate, you can use CTRL+I or CTRL+B as formatting shortcut.
There’s a list feature too. For example:
- Item number one
- Item number two
- Press Tab to create nested list
- A final item
or with numbers!
- Remember to buy some milk
- Drink the milk
- Make sure it’s not expired
- Finish in one gulp
- Tweet that I remembered to buy the milk, and drank it
Want to link to a source? No problem. Paste in url, like http://wordpress.org then click the Link button – it’ll automatically be linked up. But if you want to customise your anchor text, you can do that too! Here’s a link to the WordPress website. Neat.
What about Images?
Images work too! Click “Add Media” button which is above the buttons row. Simply drag-and-drop the image from your PC to the popup box.
Want to add caption? That’s easy too. Click on the image then click the Pencil icon, you’ll find the Caption field in the popup box.
Wisdomous – it’s definitely a word.
Sometimes a link isn’t enough, you want to quote someone on what they’ve said. It was probably very wisdomous. Is wisdomous a word? Find out in a future release when we introduce spellcheck! For now – it’s definitely a word.
Ready for a Break?
Click the Line (-) button and you’ve got yourself a fancy new divider. Aw yeah.
That should be enough to get you started. Have fun – and let us know what you think 🙂
