How To Use WordPress

Content -This is the “meat and potatoes” of WordPress. There are two major ways to publish content in WordPress, either using Pages (webpages in your website) or Posts (blog posts).

Alternatively, rather than linking out to other websites, you can bring content into WordPress using HTML embed codes. Here’s what using an embedded tweet looks like:

Appearance – You are welcome to customize your website as much as you like, time permitting. First, change the theme, then customize the theme further.
