    • Creating Your Online Presence with Wordpress
    • What IS Wordpress?
      • Wordpress is a FREE (open-source) online publishing, blogging and content management system (CMS) for creating, editing and administering user-friendly websites.
      • Wordpress powers hundreds of thousands of websites all over the web, including commercial, non-profit, news/magazine, campaign and many other types of sites.
    • Two ways to get online with WP
      • Wordpress.org
      • You have FULL control:
        • Ability to upload themes
        • Ability to upload plugins
        • Complete control to change code if you’re technically minded
      • Runs on your own domain & web host
      • More customization to build a more powerful and dynamic website
      • Wordpress.com
      • It’s free and much easier to setup
      • Everything is taken care of: setup, upgrades, spam, backups, security, etc
      • Your blog is on hundreds of servers, so it’s highly unlikely to go down due to traffic
      • Your posts are backed up automatically
      • You get extra traffic from blogs of the day and tags
      • You can connect like-minded bloggers using tag and friend surfer
    • Getting Started: Wordpress.com
      • Go to http://www.wordpress.com
      • What you’ll need :
        • Valid e-mail address
        • Name for your blog/site
      • Check your e-mail for your account confirmation
      • After you’ve signed up, you can begin building your site in a matter of seconds!
    • The Wordpress.com Dashboard – This is the back-end control for your entire site
    • The WP Dashboard
      • From the Dashboard, you can :
      • Create/edit Posts
      • Select your site’s theme
      • Create/edit Pages
      • Upload media (audio, images, video, & more)
      • Install upgrades
      • Edit site settings
    • Managing WP Themes
      • With a Wordpress.com website, you can select from over 100 free themes to give your site the appearance and functionality you want!
    • Site Settings
      • Editing your site settings allows you to customize the front-end of your website:
      • Posting & Reading settings
      • Blog title & tagline
      • Comment settings
      • Home page
      • And more !
    • Creating a Page Pages (unlike posts) are static – which means the content won’t change unless you manually edit it. Most Wordpress websites include a combination of dynamic posts (blog) and pages to help guide or inform visitors.
    • Pages (cont’d)
      • To create a new page, select “ Pages ” from the left-hand toolbar on the WP Dashboard, and click “ Add New .”

      • Posts are also displayed in the RSS feed of the blog.
      • You can control how many posts are displayed at a time in the Reading Settings .
