Learn How to Create New WordPress Menu

By | Documentation | No Comments

To get to the Menus area of the backend of WordPress, you need to navigate to Admin -> Appearance -> Menus. This will take you to the primary menu management area where you can create a new menu and manage existing menus.

Menus in WordPress may contain links to pages, categories, custom links or other content types. You can also specify a different navigation label for a menu item as well as assign other attributes. There’s no limit on how many menus you can create, so if your theme includes more than one menu location, you can choose which custom menu to associate with each location.

How to Create a Custom Menu in WordPress:

Learn How to Create New WordPress Page

By | Documentation | No Comments

Creating a WordPress page is very similar to creating a post. Just remember that pages are intended for static content like About Me or Contact Us page.  A page is also helpful if you want to have a page that looks completely different than rest of your blog but still runs on the WordPress CMS.

Add-New-Page

1) Select the word "Pages" and then "Add New" on the dashboard.
2) When the page form appears, type a title and any content that you want to be posted to your page. Then click the "Publish" button on the right to post it to your site.

The key differences between posts and pages:

WordPress post is what makes up the blog aspect of your site.

  • These are generally news or informational updates about a certain topic or talking point.
  • Posts are listed in reverse chronological order and can be tagged, categorized and even archived on your site.
  • Posts can be found in the Archives, Categories, Recent Posts, and other widgets.
  • WordPress posts are what make up the RSS content of your WordPress blog. So, when someone subscribes to your RSS feed, your posts will be the content that’s delivered to them.

WordPress Pages are similar to posts in that they have a title and body text, but they are different because:

  • they are generally reserved for static content or information.
  • Examples of this would be an About Me or Contact Us page.
  • Pages are not listed by date and can’t be categorized or tagged like WordPress posts,
  • Pages can have a hierarchy, which means you can nest pages under other pages by making one the “Parent” of the other, thus creating a group of pages.

Learn How to Create New WordPress Post

In this guide we will show 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. And you can begin composing your first WordPress post.

Add-New-Post

Between the title and content fields, there is a large Add Media button. You will need to click on it when you want to upload an image or any other media to your WordPress post. The WordPress Insert Media pop-up will appear. Click on the Select files button in the middle of the screen.

Insert-Media

For images there are two things you should take care of. First, describe the image itself - enter its Alt tag, title for the link and optionally a caption. The caption will appear under the actual image on your front end.

You can assign and/or add new categories to posts before you publish them using the Categories module to the right of the post editor. Categories provide a very convenient way to group related posts together, and to quickly tell readers what a post is about. If you would like to add a new category to your blog and associate it with the post, click  Add New Category.

categories-module

A nice feature is the ability to Preview the post — this shows you more closely how it will appear once live on your site.  And, importantly, you can Publish the post once you have previewed, made any necessary edits, and are ready to go live.

publish

That's it! You can now go to the front page of your site to check out the newly created blog post.
