Struggling With Wordpress? These Top Tips Can Help!

WordPress has been around for over a decade, and it has made blogging easy for many individuals. But, some bloggers feel too overwhelmed by the platform to use it. This article can help you understand WordPress better.

Choose a website design that is individualized for your WordPress site. You may be tempted to choose from the first couple of pages, but if you do, your blog will be very commonplace. Make a site that’s as unique as your business.

If your title is long, clean up your post’s permalink. Something like, “The Top 5 Ways Parents Discipline their Children” is a little too lengthy. Try using just the keywords for the best results.

When you are committed to post content, make up a schedule. You will increase your motivation if you know exactly how long it’s been since your last post. You may even choose to dedicate time to creating content and then letting WordPress publish it at predetermined times.

You must make adjustments if you do not want your posts to show up in the order published. Change the dates to rearrange the posts. To do this, open a single post and look for the date near the top right. Click right onto the date, make changes and then make sure you save your post so that the position is altered.

Do your posts get comments from lots of people? If so, it can be hard to weed through all of these comments. A plugin including page numbers will organize this section. This makes for easier navigation and a more organized site.

Make sure users can email themselves any of your articles at any time. This is essential for sharing since many people can’t access many popular social networking sites when at work. They may wish to share articles with friends, regardless. The WP-Email plugin is great for this.

Don’t use something boring, such as “admin”, as the name you use on your site. Bots will attack your blog if you make your username ADMINISTRATOR or ADMIN. This is a major security risk. Go to your account page and delete usernames that are generic. Choose a unique username to increase the security level of your site.

WordPress is known for helping people build blogs with ease. When you know how to use WordPress, blogging becomes a thing of joy. This material should help anybody who wants to get a blog going quickly.
