Creating a WordPress Post

Hope this article finds you well.

Today we will learn, how to create a Post in WordPress.

so keep connected and before i proceed, i would request you to do SUBSCRIBE at ShoutMe360.com so that you can get regular updates.

So lets start…..

When you land on the Dashboard after login in the WordPress admin. You see a left menu bar. In this menu you will find a menu item “Posts” just below “Home” menu item. You can either hover over the “Posts” link or click to expand it to display the submenu.

The Add New Post page can also be found from the +New link in the WordPress Admin Bar, also.

Click the Add New link and you will redirected to a form below where you can create your first post.

The first box is where you will have to enter the title of your post.

Next is the Post formatting section or called as post editor. This is section where you have to enter/type the content of your post.

If you take a look on the right side of the box, you will see two tabs. There are two modes of editing posts: Visual and Text.

The Visual tab is the tab which brings up the visual WYSIWYG editor. WYSIWYG just means “what you see is what you get.” Here you will see a formatting toolbar with lots of options for formatting your posts. If you are familiar with any of the word processing software like Microsoft Word etc., most of these icons should look familiar and you can use them easily.

Now comes to Text tab, if you click the Text tab, this will show a plain-text HTML version of the post editor. This version of the post editor is for editing the HTML code of your post. If you are familiar with the HTML then only, you will be able to use it perfectly. For most users, the Visual editor is the easiest way to write posts.

At the top of the right column on this screen you will see the Publish box. Here, your can save your post as a draft if you’d like to save it for later or can Publish the post directly. Also you can preview of your posts by clicking the Preview button, you can get a preview of how your post will look once it is published. You can also preview your posts which were saved as draft.

The Status of the post will show if the post has been published, saved as a draft, pending for review or if has been scheduled for later date.

The next two links show the visibility of the post — or what visitors will be able to see your post. The Publish line shows whether the post will be published immediately or at a later date.

The next section are for categories and tags assigned to your WordPress post. We’ll cover these two topics in more detail later.

If you would like to change the screen options for your post editor, just click the screen options tab in the upper right hand corner. Expand this to display all the options that can be displayed on the post editor screen.

Again from the post editor, you can also drag or drop the order of these boxes to customize how you want them arranged on the page.
Hope this explains you enough about Adding a Post.
