First Steps With WordPress
« on: October 27, 2018, 02:02:10 AM »
You’ve just completed the 5 Minute Installation of WordPress or one-click install from your web host. Now what?

Let’s take a step-by-step tour through your WordPress site and see how the different functions work and how to make your new site your own. During the first part of this tutorial, please don’t change anything within the program unless it is part of the tutorial. After following these steps, you’ll soon be changing everything.

Log In



Begin by logging into the “administration area” or the back end of your website. Visit your site’s login page by placing “wp-admin” after your domain name. You can also place “login” after your domain as of WordPress 3.4. Some themes provide a “login” link or form on the front end as well. Now log into WordPress using your username and password.

Start at the Top



After logging in you are on the main Administration Screen called the Dashboard. This is the brain behind your website, the place where you can let your creativity explode, writing brilliant prose and designing the best and most lovely website possible. This is where the organization of your site begins – and this is just the start.

Test Drive Your WordPress Site



Take time to look at the site before you get into the changing of things and figuring out how all of this works; it’s important to see how the WordPress Twenty Seventeen theme is laid out and how it works. Consider this the test drive before you start adding on all the special features.

The layout you are looking at is called a WordPress Theme. It is the appearance of your website, styling the look of the site and the framing of the content. The WordPress Twenty Seventeen theme features a “header” at the top with the title and tagline for your site. Below this is your Menu. Along the side, you will see some titles and links. This comprises Widgets. Within the main middle section of the page is the content area. At the bottom of the page is the footer.
