Categories and Tags

This is an introduction to categories and tags where I explain what the difference is between the two and how you might use them to organise content on your site.

Look out for the next two Press Ups where I’ll cover more on how to use categories and tags.

Excerpts

Today we look as excerpts. Excerpts are short pieces of text that describe what a post is about. I’ll explain how and why to use them and how they might appear on your site.

Screen Options

The Screen Options menu is a hidden-away tool in the WordPress Dashboard that full of things you probably didn’t know that you didn’t know.

The Post Editor – Part 1

OK, sorry for missing a Press Up while I was ill. Today I’m back – albeit with a slightly croaky voice – and looking at the post editor. Tomorrow I’ll cover in more detail the “Paste as Text” option that is mentioned briefly here, and the text editing mode and distraction-free writing mode.

Inserting Videos

I have no voice today, but I’m marching on. Here’s me showing you how to insert a video from a service like YouTube or Vimeo into a WordPress post or page.

Apologies for the lack of audio. ¬†You’ll need to read my instructions on-screen!

Dashboard Menus and Colour Schemes

Introduction to, and tips and tricks for, WordPress dashboard/admin menus. Shows how to change dashboard colour schemes too!

Apologies for both brain and voice quality. I sound a bit poorly – which I genuinely was!

Some advanced and/or hidden features of the WordPress post/page list.
