How can a WordPress user create, edit, and manage pages and posts?
WordPress provides an easy and intuitive way to manage your website’s content. Regardless of whether you’re in Australia, Singapore, or anywhere else, you’ll find that creating, editing, and managing pages and posts on WordPress is a straightforward process. At Ribbon Gang, we’re committed to empowering our clients to manage their sites with ease.
Creating a New Page or Post
- Log into your WordPress dashboard and navigate to ‘Pages’ or ‘Posts’ on the left-hand side.
- Click on ‘Add New’. This will take you to the editor where you can add a title and start writing your content.
- You can add media, such as images or videos, by clicking on the ‘Add Media’ button. You can upload files or choose from previously uploaded files in the Media Library.
- WordPress uses blocks to structure content. You can add different blocks, such as paragraphs, headings, quotes, and more, by clicking on the ‘+’ button.
- When you’re happy with your content, click on ‘Publish’. You can preview your page or post before publishing by clicking on ‘Preview’.
Editing a Page or Post
- Navigate to the ‘Pages’ or ‘Posts’ section in your WordPress dashboard.
- Find the page or post you want to edit, hover over its title, and click on ‘Edit’.
- Make the necessary changes in the editor. Once done, click on ‘Update’ to save your changes.
Managing Pages and Posts
- You can manage all your pages and posts from the ‘Pages’ and ‘Posts’ sections in your dashboard.
- From here, you can view, edit, or delete pages/posts. You can also search for a specific page/post using the search bar.
- You can organise your posts into categories and tags, which helps visitors navigate your content.
- WordPress also allows you to schedule posts for future publication. This can be done in the editor under ‘Publish > Publish Immediately > Edit’.
