Getting Started with WordPress: A Series for New Users

If you are new to WordPress then the series on getting started with WordPress that is about to start on this blog should help you get up and running in no time at all.

WordPress is a highly versatile publishing platform that can be very easy to use once you’ve gotten the hang of it. However, as there is so much you can do with this software, new users can find the wealth of features, terminology, and the settings and configuration options, not to mention the user interface of WordPress more than a little overwhelming.

So to help all of you new users out, this multi-part guide to getting started with WordPress will lead you through your first time logging into the admin area of WordPress, help you to understand the settings that govern how your website works, through to learning the names and properties of the most used elements of WordPress.

Once you’ve got the basics down, we will then move onto creating the essential pages for any website, before helping you publish your first blog posts, through to explaining how to get visitors to your website by harnessing the power of content marketing, and promoting your website on social media.

  1. Just read your post about WordPress and creating navigation. However I still have problem I can’t resolve. I have set up menus with a heiracrhy of parent and children menus which are showing and active on the side bar. My problem is the the same menus are showing in the horizontal navigation bar but these are not functioning or active, they are not picking up the categorised posts – can you help please? My theme is lovecraft.

      Hi Niki! This sounds like it depends on your theme, that should not be happening any menu should allow links to work. I’d suggest getting in touch with the theme author for support.

      Thanks!
