The first step is to pick a theme. Go to “Appearance” and “Themes”
There are TONS of themes. Some cost money, others are free…pick a free one.
Note: Themes are built by third parties. So, if your theme doesn’t function correctly, we may have to change it later. But for now, just change anything.
When you find something you like, click “activate.”
Ok, time to create your first post.
Go to “posts” then “create new.”
Then, put a title in, and choose the “text” tab (not “visual”).
Go head and write two sentences, split by a page break, which is:
And, add bold to something, which is:
<strong> (to start bold)
</strong> (to end bold)
OK, now to add pictures:
Click on “add media” on the post…NOT on the side menu:
Hit “upload file”
Then, just upload and insert. You can change the size, and also link the picture to something…these options are just above “insert into post.”
Now, let’s say that the options on the pic aren’t enough…you want it bigger than “large” but smaller than “full size.”
Click on the pic to highlight, and click on the icon:
You can enlarge/shrink the pic by 10% increments, change the alignment, and link the pic out to something, if you want to.
Ok, time to embed video:
Make sure you are on the TEXT tab of your post.
Make sure there’s a page break below your last line (or wherever you want to put the vid)
Then…go to youtube. Click on “share” then copy the “embed code.”
Now, drop that code into your post under the TEXT tab.
Now, switch to the VISUAL tab, and you should see a yellow box, where the space is being held.
Hit “Publish” and you’ve got a video.
