Basic Steps to Add a Post in WordPress
Newer Posts Are at the Top of the Website, Older Posts at the Bottom
See video tutorial below article.
A post is different from a page. A post is an article that is added to a blog. A blog is a series of articles with the newest article at the top. When you scroll down you can see older articles or blog posts.
At the bottom you’ll see a place to click for “Older Posts” because they aren’t all showing at once. Some blogs have thousands of posts or pages. They are indexed by using categories and tags
Then when someone searches for a certain keyword or tag the articles on that subject show up.
Steps to Add Post
The steps are almost like sending an email message.
1. There’s a text box for you to type the information, icons above it to format the text, and above that a place to click to upload a photo or a video. If you paste in embed code such as adding a video from youtube be sure to click the HTML tab in the upper right of the box to switch from Visual view. After you are done then add the Category and Tags.
2. Instead of clicking Send you click Publish.
If you’ve been afraid to try to learn to set up your own website with wordpress you’ll see from this that adding a post is as easy as sending an email.
Of course you can always make a complicated advanced wordpress site but the basics are enough for the needs of many businesses and interests. Keeping it simple means you can save money by setting it up and maintaining it yourself.
