Posting Articles

Posting articles using WordPress is fairly straightforward. In the WordPress Dashboard, choose Posts and Add New. You will be presented with the screen below, albeit empty and ready for your genius.

Add New Post

Here's a checklist for blogging:

  1. At the top of the Edit Post area, give your post a title.
  2. In the text area, write an article. You may include text in a variety of formats, inline images, and even embed image galleries.
  3. Use the “more” button to create an article break. Any content above the break will appear on the front of the blog with a “more” link to continue reading; any content after the break will be displayed only on the single-post page, after a reader clicks in to read the complete article.
  4. On the right, assign your article to a category.
  5. Still on the right, under Post Tags, tag your article with keywords.
  6. Finally, on the right select a Featured Image for your post.

These things done and article published, you will end up with something like this as the featured post on your front page:
