This tutorial will show you how to write a new post to your weblog. Start by creating a title for the new post. Now enter the content of your post. You have
several options to configure when creating the new post. Decide if you world like to allow visitors to post comments and/or pings. If you password protect the post, visitors will need to enter a password to view it. You can enter a
slug. This will apply if you are using Permalinks to create a link to your post. Essentially, it will remove all non-HTML-friendly characters, and it will add a hyphen in between each word of your title. You will need to assign the post to existing category, or enter the name of a new one.
Draft will save the post in draft mode, while Publish will actually publish the post when you save it.
Private will (obviously) keep the post private. By default, at the time the post is saved, that will be the date and time of the post. Alternatively, click the checkbox and change the date and time. All future posts will not appear on the site until that time has passed. And finally, select the author from the drop down list. You can optionally upload a file to include in the post. You can add an
expert, or a teaser that is displayed on the front page of your blog as well as on archive and category pages.
Trackbacks let other blogs know you're referenced one of their articles. To send trackbacks from this post, enter the URL or web site addresses in the box, separating each one by a space. You can also add custom fields. For instance, you can add a field called
Mood, and as a value you can enter Grumpy and tired. At this point, you can save the post for future edit. In this example, we are done so we will immediately publish it to the weblog. Let's take a look at the results. As you can see, the post has been successfully added. Well, that's it! You are now able to write posts in your weblog.
