You will be presented with the various menus and sub-menus of the dashboard, such as the “Dashboard” menu, the “Pages” menu and the “Posts” menu, with a brief description of the features available in each menu.

We will explain how to customize the WordPress dashboard, choosing the widgets to display in the sidebar and rearranging the various elements of the dashboard so that the most used features are at your fingertips.

Finally, you will be presented with the “Settings” section of the WordPress dashboard, where you can configure various site settings, such as site title, site description, admin email address, and permalink settings .

At the end of this module, participants will be able to use the WordPress dashboard autonomously, accessing the different features and customizing the interface according to their needs.

Overview of WordPress Gutenberg features

In this part of the course, you will be given a comprehensive overview of Gutenberg’s features, introducing the main content modules available for creating pages and posts. You’ll learn about Gutenberg’s advanced features, such as creating your own blocks and using reusable blocks. In addition, some Gutenberg extensions will be presented, such as the “Gutenberg” plugin, which allows you to use Gutenberg only on certain pages or posts on the site.

By the end of this module, participants will have gained in-depth knowledge of Gutenberg and its features, which will then be used in subsequent WordPress content creation modules.

Difference between page and categories in WordPress

In WordPress, pages and categories are two different content types that are used to organize and present website content.

The pages are used for the creation of static content, such as the “About Us” page or the “Contact Us” page. The pages are not organized into categories and do not have a publication hierarchy, i.e. they do not have a chronological publication order.

Categories, on the other hand, are used to organize website posts in a logical and structured way. Categories are a kind of labels that are applied to posts to group them according to similar themes or topics. Categories appear in the website archive, where visitors can access all posts belonging to the same category.

In summary, the difference between page and category in WordPress lies in the function and use of each of these two types of content. Pages are used to create static content, while categories are used to organize content according to similar themes or topics and make it more easily accessible to website visitors.

How to create an article in WordPress

To create a new post in WordPress, you need to access the site dashboard and select the “Posts” item from the main menu. Here, a list of all the articles on the site will be displayed, divided according to the date of publication and the category they belong to.

To create a new article, you can select the “Add new” item from the “Articles” submenu. Alternatively, you can select the “New” item from the main menu and then choose the “Article” item.

Once the window for creating a new article has opened, it will be possible to insert the article title and the main content. Using Gutenberg’s formatting tools, it will be possible to customize the appearance of text, insert images, videos and other types of content.

Additionally, you can use categories and tags to organize your article by theme or topic. By selecting the “Categories” item from the side menu, it will be possible to choose the category to which the article belongs. Alternatively, you can create a new category using the “Add new category” button.

Once the drafting of the article and the choice of categories and labels have been completed, it will be possible to publish the article using the “Publish” button. Alternatively, if the article is not yet complete or ready for publication, it will be possible to save it as a draft using the “Save draft” button.

Furthermore, it will be possible to schedule the publication of the article on a specific date and time using the “Publication date” option in the article creation window.

In summary, to create a new article in WordPress, simply access the site dashboard, select the “Articles” item and then choose the “Add new” item. Here, you will be able to enter the title and content of the article, customize the appearance of the text using Gutenberg’s formatting tools, and use categories and tags to organize the article. Finally, it will be possible to publish the article or schedule its publication using the appropriate options.

How to edit a post in WordPress

To edit an article already published in WordPress, you need to access the site dashboard and select the “Articles” item from the main menu. Here, a list of all the articles on the site will be displayed, divided according to the date of publication and the category they belong to.

To edit an existing article, you can select the desired article from the article list. Once you open the article, you will be able to edit the title and main content of the article using Gutenberg’s formatting tools.

Furthermore, it will be possible to change the categories and labels assigned to the article by selecting the “Categories” or “Labels” item from the side menu and making the desired changes. You can assign the article to one or more categories and enter one or more tags to identify its content.

Once you have completed editing the article, you will be able to save your changes using the “Update” button at the top of the article editing window.

Furthermore, if you want to schedule the publication of the article on a specific date and time, it will be possible to modify the “Publication date” present in the article editing window. In this way, it will be possible to schedule the publication of the article at a specific time without necessarily having to publish it immediately.

In summary, to edit an article in WordPress, simply access the site dashboard, select the “Articles” item and choose the desired article from the list of articles. Here, you will be able to make your desired changes to the title, content and categories/labels, and save your changes using the “Update” button. Alternatively, it will be possible to schedule the publication of the article on a specific date and time using the “Publication date” option.
