Settings

 

I never knew that you could change almost everything so easily and quick.  In settings you have all the way from general to import. Right now as a beginner you are going to work in general setting and as we get more involved into WordPress we will move onto the other settings.

In the general setting  you are able to change your site tag line, site title, site address, language, and visibility. I will most likely change and use the site tag line, and site title if I ever need to.

Like I stated before but once I get more into WordPress and getting to know it even more I will go into deeper detail about the other setting options.

Themes

 

Themes are important to a website for many reasons. First, having an eye-catching webpage draws your followers and readers in. Second, it makes your website different from everyone else. Finding a theme that goes with your webpage and that you like is difficult. You may like this theme but the theme over there would go better with your webpage.  You can never just find the perfect theme without customizing it a little bit.

While I looked through the themes every week because I am able to find something wrong with the theme I have and I end up not liking it.  Choosing theme can take from one day to a few weeks. You will know once you have found the perfect theme.

I’ve had many challenges myself with finding a theme. A few are those are, having my other pages show up as a link, being able to work the site, and the organization. Each theme is very different from the next and I have realized that there will always be challenges within a theme.

In a theme  I look for something that goes along with your site, but also that stands out. Needs some personality but not to much. Most of all make it you  and your site.

Here’s a joke if you need one:

Because they are lactose

 

 

 

 

 

 

Category and Tags

Adding category and tags is very easy.  I will first show you how to add a categories and then tag. In the picture below on the left hand side there is a panel with six tabs, one of those options begin categories and tags. Click on the categories and tags tab and then click add new category. Type in your category name and boom! You have a category now.  Now that you  have you can add a tag. Once again click the category and tag tab and click in the box below the word TAGS, add your tag (can be whatever you want it to be) and then press enter, and ka-boom you now have a tag. screenshot

 

Linking to other websites

 

Linking to other websites around the world can be very helpful. This is helpful because then we can get more information that we might not have been able to see if it wasn’t linked. Linking to other websites that are helpful helps if people don’t understand your own website.

How you insert a link

Linking websites to your website is easy. All you have to do is copy the URL for the website you want to link you site to. Once you have that URL copied then you go to the post or the page highlight the the words you want linked and then while those are highlighted paste you URL. Don’t worry it wont remove the words it will just add the URL to them.  If you need additional help don’t worry click here on inserting a link.

Personal Experience

Have you ever looked at a site wondering what the heck they are talking about or what they mean? Want an easier, more simple website to look at?  I know I have been in this position myself and I wonder what the heck they were talking about or what the heck their direction were telling me to do, but then I clicked on the word that was colored blue and said need more help click here. So I did and it took me to another website that made more sense. These links help so much and I feel like they are need if you are trying to explain something that can be confusing to others.
