First lets talk about the difference between pages and post.
Pages are your basic blog structure, they are kind of set them and forget them. Page titles show up on the menu of your blog, unlike blog post titles.
You want to seriously lay your blog out and think about your menu and what you want people to be able to access from anywhere on your website.
Remember, pages and post rank on the search engines not the entire website. So if there is information you prefer people to get when the visit, make sure it is a page and can be accessed from your menu.
WordPress Basics Adding Pages-Post-Pics-Videos & Hyperlinks
Lets start with basic wordpress content addition, for example to add pages or post without pictures or videos, just type in the title, type what you want to say below, click publish and your done.
Now that you have finished and looked at the final product, you feel it would look better with a picture, just go back to edit, put your cursor where you want the image and click on the little camera above the content box and the title. Select a file from your computer, choose the size, alignment and insert, done again.
You would think adding a video would be more complicated than any of the things we have already gone over, right, not!
Not when you add a plugin called “viper video quicktags”….it inserts your video, sizes it and generally makes it look nice.
Install the plugin, now choose a video you want to insert from youtube and copy the url.
Go to the post or page you want to add video, click on the youtube icon on right above content box, paste url and click ok….you are done.
Click save draft, preview and you will see your video looking fantastic on your new website.
You should be feeling pretty good now, so lets talk hyperlinks.
