Before you can add to your website you need to login to your Dashboard - the place where you manage all of your content. To do this, please use your browser and navigate to example.co.uk/wp-login.php replacing example.co.uk with your own domain name. Once there, please enter your username and password which have been provided for you.

You are now ready to add content to your new site!

On the left menu:

  1. Hover over "Posts" and click on "Add New"
  2. Add your Post title by clicking in the top block and typing.
  3. Add your content to the next block by typing. You are able to insert media such as a picture in this area and select its positioning (left, right or center)
  4. To add an additional block area either press "Enter" or hover your mouse over the bottom of the existing one to display a "+" sign and click on it. You are able to choose what type of content you would like to add to the next area (i.e. photo, video, text etc).
  5. Continue adding blocks for the content you wish to display.
  6. On the right hand menu be sure to choose or add a category for your post to be displayed within (the default is "Uncategorised", you may wish to add a new one, for example "News".
  7. Again on the right hand menu, choose a featured image for your post. This is quite important as this image displays within your Blog or News page and also is sent to Facebook and Twitter if you are using the Jetpack social extension.
  8. Once you are happy with your Post click Publish at the top right of the page (you can save this as a draft and return to it later if you wish).
  9. All done! You have now published your first Post.
