MAKING BLOG POSTS.
In the top navigation window, go to New and select Post from the dropdown menu. Once the new post is created, give it a title in the top field, then check the Blog box in the Categories section on the right. Next, click the Save Draft button at the top right under Publish. Now you can add text, photos, etc. for the new blog post.
First, make sure the Toolbar Toggle is on (it’s this button):
You’ll find most of your standard text formatting options here (bold, center, etc.) as well as some pre-formatted styles from the style dropdown menu. You can add links here as well. You also have buttons at the top for adding forms, galleries and shortcodes. These can add some extra options to your blog posts like external videos (like YouTube videos), specialized formatting and styles, and a bunch of other cool stuff.
Click the Add Media button to add photos to your blog post. You can choose from photos you already have in your Media Library or you can select the Upload Files tab at the top of the page and upload new photos. When your photo is selected, look at the option on the right of the screen. You can give it a title, caption, etc. (which helps with SEO) as well as place the photo on the left, center or right, and pick how big you want it displayed (which you can easily change later if needed). Click the Insert into post button when you’re done. Once your image is on the page, you can click on it to change the alignment or the size (click the little pencil icon to change the size). You can select Custom Size from the Size dropdown menu to make the photo whatever size you need.
PUBLISHING YOUR BLOG POST:
Before you publish, go down to the Featured Image section at the bottom right and click the Set featured image link. If you added any photos to this blog post, select it (or any other photo you want) from the Media Library and then click the Set featured image button at the bottom right. Without a featured image selected, there will be no picture next to this blog post on the main Blog page.
Once you’re ready to publish, go up to the Publish section at the top right. You have some options there to publish it privately or password-protected, as well as whether to publish it immediately or schedule it to publish whenever you want. Once you’re ready, just hit Publish. Once it’s published, click the View Post link that appears at the top of the page to see the post.
