Before reading this one read the first part.

After successfully creating a WordPress blog as said in my previous post you would be greeted with the following screen.

This is the dashboard of our WordPress site.

In the dashboard we can,

  • Post blogs .
  • Change our static pages.
  • Change our themes and plugins.
  • Add new users.
  • And a lot more.

In this article lets discuss about working with post and pages.

Then post your content in the fields give in the page.

The big part here to add is the category. The categories can be added like below,

Without adding categories, our post would have a category called "uncategorized" which does not look good.

After adding category and content, just click publish and you can see your post with the url given in the dashboard.

You have successfully created a page and a post in wordpress now.
Congratulations!

That's all a beginner needs to know for now. There is a lot more to posts and pages in WordPress but right now play around this stuff.

In my next post I will discuss how to add page links to menu.
