Learn How to Create New WordPress Post

By July 26, 2015 Documentation No Comments

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.

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.

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.

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.

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