Creating a post in WordPress is simple, but making it right requires some attention to details. This simple tutorial should guide you to make your post on WordPress and make it right.
An Overview on How to Create A Post on WordPress
Sure, you can easily click the Add New post from the dashboard and enter your post on WordPress, but there are some things that you need to do to make your post more attractive and more readable to your subscribers. I will divide this tutorial into three parts.
- First of all. is how to create and publish a post, which will be covered in this post
- And the second part. which I will discuss on the next post, are the things that you need to consider in making your post which are:
- Formatting (including, paragraph formatting, heading and subheading, font formatting, etc…)
- Insert the ‘Read More’ tag and why you need to.
- Images and feature image
- Optimize your post for Search Engine

- SEO with Yoast
Part I. How To Create and Publish Your Post.
This is the easy part, but of course, a very important part.
- Login to your WordPress Admin page by typing http://<your-domain-name>/wp-admin. For example: http://jrlcentral.xyz/wp-admin.
- After logging in, you will directed to your dashboard. From there you have two options to create your post.
- Enter Your Post Title.- the post title should describe your topic in a single sentence.
- Enter Your post content. Under the Title entry box, are tool bars which contains formatting tools. We will go back to that later. Below the tool bars is where you enter your content.
In making your content, it is advised that it should be at least 300 words long but don’t bore your readers by making it too long.
- Publish or Save Draft. Assuming you have completed your composition, you are now ready to publish it then click on the “Publish” button located at the right side bar. However, you may want to proof read or improve your composition first. If you don’t want publish your post yet, then click on the Save Draft button.
For now, I suggest, save your post as draft because you still need to improve the formatting and add some images. I will discuss these and more on my next post.
