This week on the blog I wanted to share a few simple screenshots of what WordPress looks like. A lot of bloggers who have used other platforms hear that WordPress is complicated and requires a lot of customisation – so I wanted to break down the barriers and show that it’s not all that hard!
What WordPress Looks Like: Posts
Today I want to show you the interface where you write and schedule posts. When you log into WordPress you usually end up on an overview dashboard. All you have to do to get to posts is click on the posts link within the left hand menu. You can then click on all posts and see an overview of what you have. You can always then narrow it down further with the scheduled, drafts and published links.
Once you’ve added a new post or chosen to edit an existing one, you’ll see a page like the one below. As you can see, the title field is clearly sepearte at the top, and the body area is distinct and with a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. No code required to do things like bold, italicise, strikethrough or create links. Adding photos is done through the “add media” button.
Off the the right is where you can schedule the post, save it as drafts or publish it immediately. Below that is where you choose a category for the post.
See how easy it is to put a post into WordPress?! What do you want to know about WordPress 101?
