WordPress makes it easy for individuals to share news, ideas, events and just about any other thought you might have in mind with their community and anyone who is interested. This is done by creating a Post
A rundown of what a Post is:
In this short and basic tutorial we will show you how to create a Post so you too can begin sharing with persons from around the world! Sounds great right?!
After that you will be led to another page where you will enter all the information about the Post you which to share with the world.
Please keep in mind you can add images, videos and other media or documents to the Post if you’d like by simply clicking the “Add Media” button above the content area.
Proceed to look on the right side where you will find different boxes to add even more details to your Post such as a Category, Tag and Featured Image.
(You may be wondering why have both a Category and Tag if they both tell the viewer what the post is about, well put it like this Category groups a wider description of the Post while Tag groups it also but narrows it down more for example: A Post about Tigers, you may want to use “Animals” as the Category and then use “tiger(s)” as Tag)
A window will pop up after click “Set Featured image” where you can either upload or set an already uploaded image from your website.
Not to worry though if you have published it if incomplete as you can always go back to your post through the Dashboard and save it as a Draft by simply changing the “Status” to draft in the same area where you clicked publish.
You can also tell WordPress who you want to the Post to be visible to by clicking on Edit in the same line where Visibility is, this allows you to set it to: Public (by default), Password Protected or Private.
It also allows you to schedule when you would like the Post to be published just in case you did it early.
By the time you are finish all the steps above it should look something like this one here I did myself:
Head on over to the page where all your posts are shown and see how it looks:
Post Listing on the Blog Page:
Please note that every theme has its own layout of displaying post listings and the post itself, you can always customize how it looks but we will leave that for another time and they are also plenty of guides out there to help you achieve this.
And then below that will be the section where viewers can leave their comments.
We hope this helped you in creating your very own Post and look forward to see what you are going to share with the world!
