How to Use WordPress When You Are Not Tech Savvy
by Saad Baig
WordPress is an excellent forum for both novice and experienced users. This post will look at how WordPress is ideal for beginners with minimal technical skills and how you can use it as a content management system.
You’re most likely an artist with unique crafts to show off, a tourist with a camera who wishes the entire world to see what you’ve experienced, or a writer with a story to share. What best option to do so than on the internet? Social media helps a lot, but having a blog or website makes the task far smarter. You can create your own space, style it however you want, and keep your projects on track while reaching out to the globe with a sound content management system (CMS).
The bottom line is that you don’t have to become a tech whiz to have a great website and do it on your behalf. If you have an adequate amount of content to display and essential file editing and managerial expertise, the only things left to do are finding and installing a good CMS, getting a domain name, and hosting your excellent site. Starting a new project can be intimidating, particularly if you don’t believe you have the required skills to complete it. Fortunately, no technical knowledge is needed to use WordPress
Login in the world of WordPress
WordPress installation is typically easy since most web hosts have a one-click installation process that makes it simpler and quicker for you. It’s also completely secure.
To update a website, create a blog… To begin, you must first log in. Generally, you will find the login form on the domain connection to which you have added / wp-admin. You will be able to see and explore the dashboard after successfully logging in.
- Your dashboard can look a bit different based on the type and plugins you’re using. It can have various menus, styles, and colours. But there are a few things they all have in common. Person material navigation is available in the left column:
- Dashboard – You’ll find shortcuts, basic facts, and a link to updates here. This is where the true excitement starts. In the WordPress admin portal, you can add content to your site, configure how it functions, and add plugins to extend its versatility.
- Posts- Individual blog posts are referred to as posts. This menu contains a list of all blogs, groups, tags, and the option to add new posts.
- Media-Media is a library of all the photos, graphics, and documents you can upload to the website. This is where all the media is located, whether uploaded to this library, post, or page.
- Pages-Unlike posts, pages are those static parts of a website. These are individual subpages on the site.
- Comments- If you have allowed comments on your website, you can find all of the comments that have been posted on the blog under the comments section. In addition to the opportunity to accept, deny, and react
- Appearance- Under appearance, you can discover and edit a theme that is already built on the website.
Widgets are the individual components of a website that can be found in the sidebar, footer, or top row. The menu editing option is also available under the Appearance tab. You have the option of creating new menus or editing existing ones.
- Plugins- Under the Plugins tab, you can install, toggle, or deactivate plugins. These are website add-ons that provide additional features
- Tools- The Tools menu contains various options for importing and exporting content.
- Settings- you’ll find a plethora of options ranging from time settings to monitor settings, languages, and permalinks.
Pages in WordPress
Pages are the more passive sections of a website that vary in usability and type from the publications themselves. These will also adjust and be updated on a regular basis. Pages include the homepage, landing pages, email, about me, and services.
The most common way to add content to your web is to create pages and blogs. It is completely up to you how you show the material. Remember that any images, videos, or media you share through these pages and posts can be accessed and edited in the media library.
WordPress should also be updated on a daily basis. The WordPress website, plugins, and themes should all be modified. However, before each upgrade, I suggest that you make a backup to an alternative database.
The biggest reason WordPress is so successful is that it is an open-source platform, which ensures that anybody can use or modify the platform to suit the website it is being designed for. Begin experimenting with WordPress. You’ll notice that making improvements is adaptable and straightforward. You do not need any additional knowledge to build the website you want.
Take a bit of time to explore WordPress and become more familiar with the many features available via the Portal. You can also find a “Help” tab on each page of the WordPress Admin portal or use the comprehensive documentation offered by WordPress. Furthermore, in today’s modern era, you can find the answer to almost every question online.
