Creating and Using Posts in WordPress

Posts are the entries that display in reverse chronological order on your home page. In contrast to pages, posts usually have comments fields beneath them and are included in your site's RSS feed.

To write a post successfully in your website using WordPress follows the following steps.

Step 1: Login in to WordPress Admin Panel or Dashboard

Step 2: Click on the ‘Posts’ menu option and select ‘Add New’

Step 3: Fill all the entries

Step 4: As needed Category, Post Tag, Format and many more, you can attach with posts.

Step 5: If you are ready to publish the post then click on ‘Publish’ button.

Let's see a brief demonstration on it.

Open the login page and login in to WordPress Admin Panel (Dashboard)

Post Tags:  You can assign keywords to your posts using Post Tags. Unlike categories, tags have no hierarchy, meaning there’s no relationship from one tag to another. Let’s see an example on how to add post tags?
