Your First Page…

pagewriting-oldstyleWhen is a post not a post? When it’s a page! So what’s the difference and how do you create one in WordPress? With the latest version of WordPress a blog can have the same structure as a classic HTML web site with a selection of easily navigable pages.

These stand free and proud of the blog aspects (i.e. posts) of your site. I explain more in today’s audio and the first video tutorial takes you through the process of building your own page, the first of many I’m sure ( how about a Privacy Policy? Google loves those)!



I’ve created a separate video for making your Home page a static page over here

Got a question about any of the info above? Let us know in the Comments section below….

      Hi Kimberly,

      Well setting up a blog, whatever it’s content or purpose, is what this site’s about so certainly I can help. I think you need to take pencil to paper, if you haven’t done so already, and work out the structure of your blog – Pages and Categories. Are you just going to write about your personal experiences and hope other women in similar circumstances reply in the comments? Or maybe you want to offer advice for specific issues?

      To start with I’d suggest an ‘About You’ ( or the credo of the site) and a Contact page (that can be anonymous) – get that done first then think about your main content later. You might look at creating forums too or maybe a Social Networking site and then promote it on Facebook.
