NAVIGATE YOUR WORDPRESS DASHBOARD

1. Go to your Dashboard.

  • Posts – View your posts, add new posts, create and view your categories and tags.
  • Media – Your media library, where all your images will be filed.
  • Pages – View and add new pages.
  • Appearance – View and customise your theme, widgets, menu and background. I prefer to manage these settings in the Divi Theme Customiser.
  • Plugins – View and add plugins.
  • Users – View and create users.
  • Settings – Change settings for your website including image sizes and permalink formats.

2. Go to the ‘Settings’ tab.

  1. Under the common settings tab, select ‘Post Name’, so that the URL displays as www.yourdomain.com/sample-page-title.
  2. Click ‘Save Changes’.

3. Go to the ‘Media’ tab.

Adjust the image sizes to suit your preferences and save your changes.

Please note that this is a global change on your website. If you’re not sure, leave the settings as they are.

4. Go to the ‘General’ tab and edit your:

  • Site Title.
  • Tagline.
  • Email Address.
  • Timezone.
  • Date Format.
  • Time Format.
  • Week Starts on (Day).
  • Site Language.

Then save your changes.

5. Go to the ‘Reading’ tab.

If you’d like your front page to be a page and not a post:

  • Go to the ‘Front Page Displays’ section and select ‘Static Page’.
  • Select your ‘Static Page’ from the drop down box.
  • Select your ‘Posts Page’ from the drop down box.

You can change these settings down the track and will only have options in the drop down box when you’ve created your Website Pages.

  • Then select the amount of posts to display on your Blog pages and whether each article should be displayed in full text or summary.

6. Go to the ‘Discussions’ tab.

This is where you can update your settings for comments and link notifications. As this is a case-by-case preference, scroll through and select your discussion settings. You can also scroll down to the Avatars section and select your Avatar settings for your users.

Save your changes.
