Table of Contents:

Posts are what make your blog a blog — they’re servings of content that are listed in reverse chronological order (newest to oldest) on your blog page.

To write a blog post go to WordPress Dashboard » Posts » Add New. You will see an editor area where you can write your first post.

On this page, you will see the WordPress posts editor. The most important parts of this page are:

Post Title – enter the title of your post in this field. On your theme it will be shown above your content.

Post Content – you can use the WordPress WYSIWYG editor to add the actual content of your post. Note that it has two tabs available in the tab menu on the right – Visual (use the editor to format your text) and Code (add your HTML code directly).

When you’re done, click the Publish button to publish your post. Publishing brings post to your actual website.

That’s it! You can press Preview button to check out the newly created blog post.

You can edit a post that has already been published. Click on the title of the post you would like to edit. This will open the post in the WordPress Editor, where you can add or remove content.

A published post will show an Update button where Publish previously was.

Click Update to push your changes live.

Adding Categories and Tags #

Categories and tags help you organize your content in a meaningful and browsable format.

They also help with SEO and make it easier for your users to find the content they are looking for.

The categories and tags meta boxes are located in the right-hand column, under the Document settings.

Read in more details how to create categories, assign posts to categories and adding tags.


Adding Excerpts (Article Summary) #

Excerpts are the summary of a blog post. Theme can automatically generate the excerpt from the first few lines of your post. However, this automatic excerpt may not always be meaningful or catchy. In that case, you may want to manually add an excerpt.

You can do so by adding it in the excerpt box located under document settings column on the right.

Turn Comments On / Off #

Theme comes with a built-in commenting system that allow users to leave comments on your post. You can turn off comments for individual posts from the Discussion tab under the Document tab.

You’ll also see the option to allow pingbacks and trackbacks. These allow you and other blogs to notify each other when they link to an article.

However, it is mostly used for spam, so we recommend completely disabling pingbacks and trackbacks.

Mark Post as Featured #

If post marked as featured, it will be shown at the very top of the listing in the category and archive pages:

If more than one posts marked as featured, only the last marked will be shown in the listing top (regardless of the post creation date).
