Tips and Tricks for your ‘WordPress’ Account

Future Bloggers!

Here you have a basic ‘help sheet’ to aid you in your quest of a blog.

Creating Your Account

  •    This is the easiest part so I won’t Say much
  •   All you have to do is to log on to the WordPress home page, enter your details and Sign Up!
  •    Make sure you use your regular email so that if any future issues arise regarding logging in and passwords you know where your new password will be emailed to!

Changing Your Appearance

  •     Click on the ‘Appearance’ on the left sidebar
  •    Here there will be various themes
  •    Once you have chosen one simply click ‘Activate’
  •    On most of the themes you can change the ‘header image’
  •    You can then upload an image and crop it to fit

Adding Widgets

  •   Widgets allow you to add handy links to your blog
  •    To get to the list of widgets click on the ‘appearance’ button –
  •   Click on the ‘widgets’ button than a list of handy helpers will appear

Tip:

  •    Adding ‘recent posts’ is especially helpful for those who are readers of your blog

 Headings

  •      To change the tagline, blog title and date format, click on ‘settings’ and then ‘general’

Tip:

  •    I recommend changing your tagline as soon as you have logged in otherwise you will have the default wordpress tagline

Posting a Blog

  •     Go to ‘Posts’
  •    Select ‘Add New’

 Adding an Image

  •     Click on ‘Upload/Insert’

Goodluck!
