The basics of creating and publishing a blog post in WordPress is relatively straightforward. However, it’s a good idea to get a thorough overview of all the components that make up a WordPress post. This should ensure that you are making full use of WordPress and all its publishing powers.
In this tutorial we will teach you the very basic thing you need to do with WordPress – creating posts. To begin, login to your site admin panel and go to Posts -> Add New.
On this page you will see the WordPress posts editor. The most important parts of this page are:
- Post Title – enter the title of your post in this field. On your theme it will be shown above your content.
- Post Content – you can use the WordPress WYSIWYG editor to add the actual content of your post. Note that it has two tabs – Visual (use the editor to format your text) and Text (add your HTML code directly).
Once you enter the content of your first WordPress post, you need to Publish it. Publishing brings your post to your actual website.
That’s it! You can now go to the front page of your site to check out the newly created blog post.
