How to make a new WordPress post

  1. Once logged in to your website you will see the Dashboard. From here either go to Posts > Add New or find the + New button in the header and choose Post from the dropdown list.
  2. In the right-hand panel, make sure Post is highlighted at the top then find the Categories section and choose the appropriate categories for your post.
  3. Likewise find the Tags section and add any appropriate tags.
  4. In the Featured image section, click Set featured image then either upload or choose an existing image for your post. This may seem like an unnecessary step but all posts need a featured image, even if you have to use something which has been used before.
  5. In the main central part of the page give your post a heading, then add the text you wish to add underneath the heading.
  6. If you wish to add images within the post, make a gap between paragraphs using the Enter key then click on the black +sign and choose image from the blocks offered.
  7. Lists are also different blocks to paragraphs of text so if you have a numbered or bulleted list choose List from the +sign block menu.
  8. When you have finished your post, scroll down the page to the Ethos Post Settings and make sure Post Carousel Display is selected.
  9. Click Publish in the top right hand corner of the page, then click Publish again when asked for confirmation.
  10. In the right-hand pane you can now copy the web address of your post which is useful for pasting into posts on Facebook and Twitter. Instagram only allows links in Stories.
  11. Your post will now be published and will appear on the website.
