Guide

Chris,

Here is a little tutorial on how to write entries in the wordpress blog system. Do not be intimidated by it – all you need to learn and use is the blogging stuff for now – but once you get the hang of it you will see that it applies to all the other pats too and that it is not that bad. Click around – you cant break it. SCROLL DOWN ON THIS PAGE – THERE ARE LIKE 7 SCREEN GRABS…

CLICK ON THE “LOG IN” LINK TO GO TO THE “LOG IN” SCREEN

OK – I KNOW THIS ONE IS KINDA OBVIOUS BUT I DIDNT WANT TO OMIT A SCREEN. OR A STEP.

 

CLICK ON THE POSTS LINK TO ‘VIEW ALL’ POSTS IN THE SYSTEM AND CHOOSE THE ONE YOU WANT TO EDIT

 

ALMOST EVERY LINK YOU ROLL OVER WILL GIVE YOU OPTIONS – TRY ONE STARTING WITH POSTS.

 

FROM HERE CHOOSE TO EDIT AN EXISTING POST OR CREATE A NEW ONE

 

THIS PAGE WORKS JUST LIKE MICROSOFT WORD – OR LIKE THE COMPOSE MAIL SCREEN OF YOUR EMAIL PROGRAM.

JUST TYPE YOUR ENTRY IN THE TEXT AREA AND HIT “PUBLISH” OR “UPDATE”.

ONCE YOU HAVE DONE YOUR EDITS AND PUBLISHED THEM YOU SHOULD GO AND SEE WHAT THE PAGE LOOKS LIKE. THERE ARE SEVERAL “VIEW POST” LINKS THROUGHOUT THE EDIT PROCESS – WATCH FOR THEM

 

AND THIS IS YOUR PAGE – YOU CAN ENTER THE EDIT SYSTEM FROM HERE AS WELL IF YOU ARE LOGGED IN. ALSO NOTE THE GREY BAR AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE – THIS ONLY APPEARS WHEN YOU ARE LOGGED IN
