1. Login to WordPress
Once your site has been complete, we will give you a login URL, a username and a password. Go to your URL (usually www.yoursite.com/wp-admin) and enter that username and password and you’ll be logged into your WordPress site.
2. Navigate the dashboard
Once your logged in, you’ll see a variety of options on the left hand side. In the picture below we’ve pointed out where you can access your ‘Posts’ as well as your ‘Pages’. The difference between ‘Posts’ and ‘Pages’ is easy – Posts are articles that go inside of the blog section, while Pages are the main pages in your site – usually things like ‘About Us’, ‘Contact Us’, etc.
Add a new post or navigate to an old post
Once you click on ‘Posts’, you’ll come to the page below. To add a new post you can click ‘Add New’ at the top of the page. To edit a previous post, you can just click on any of the blog titles to edit that post.
Add content/edit a post
Once you get a single post page, you’ll see the screen below. First and foremost you will want to pick a creative and relevant title for your blog post. Directly below that is where you will add/edit content for the post. On the top-right of that content section are the buttons ‘Visual’ and ‘HTML’. You’ll want to make sure that ‘Visual’ is selected unless you know how to write code.
On the right are two sections called ‘Category’ and ‘Tags’. Category is going to be just that – the main category for the blog post. Tags are more specific to the post itself. For example, if you had a car website, the Category might be ‘Muscle Cars’ and some tags might be ‘Mustang’, ‘Yellow’, and ‘V8′.
Once you’ve completed your post, you’ll want to either save it as a draft or publish it. Both of these options can be found to the right of where you edit your content.
