Creating a New Post

This video demonstrates how to create a new post (or article) in WordPress, using the built-in WYSIWYG editor.

  • Creating a new post in WordPress using the Posts > Add New > sub-panel.
  • Personalizing the Add New Post interface.
  • How to resize the editing area.
  • Formatting text and content using the WYSIWYG editor.
