Feb Days–WordPress #2

Now that you’ve created a piece of content for every catagory, it’s time to set up menus.

NOTE: Not every theme will support menus. If you’re having trouble, see me.

Go ahead and create a menu tab for each one of your categories. So, since I have a catagory called “Analytics” (for when I teach web analytics), I’m going to create a menu for all the “Analytics” stuff in that catagory.

Now, let’s talk about embedding media.

Remember all that stuff we did in Drupal? It’s about to come in handy.

If you get into the right hand of your content box, you can switch from “visual” to “text.” This will show you an HTML version of your post. Basically, it will look like your Drupal site.

You can now embed audio/video/etc.

Let’s start with youtube vids.

Be sure to use the page break before and after the vid/tweet/audio/etc.

so, it should look like this:



To embed a youtube video, click “share” then “embed code.”

To embed a tweet, click “more” then “embed this tweet.”

You’ll get this.

Now, embedding Soundcloud is a bit tricker. Make sure you grab the WORDPRESS code.
