1 – How to login to your WordPress dashboard?
Just go to the top section of your browser where you see your URL. Over here write the following, “www.example.com/WP-ADMIN” and press enter. In the next page, add your username and password.
2 – WordPress Dashboard
The first page you see isn’t very useful after a while. However, when you’re starting out you may find some good information. You are able:
– Switch to a new theme
– See how many posts and comments you have
– Read the latest WordPress news, etc.
3 – Updates
In this section, you are able to see if you need to update your website’s plugins or theme.
4 – Posts
You’ll pass great part of your time over here, possibly creating new content.
5 – Media Library
In this section, you’ll be able to see all the images added to your website.
6 – Pages
You should use pages for every static page you want in your website. This includes: contact page, about page, etc.
7 – Comments
All the comments displayed in your website. You can manage and review them in this section.
8 – Appearance
In this section, you can do a lot of things, including:
– Switch to a new theme and customize it
– Change your sidebar widgets
– Create menus
9 – Plugins
I would say this is the most powerful feature from WordPress. Using plugins you can pretty much turn your website to anything you want. For instance:
– Akismet: blocks great part of your daily comment spam.
– Jetpack: add a huge amount of functions to your website.
