Post editing in Wordpress

Writing a Post

WordPress has two post editing modes, basic and advanced. The basic mode is the default one for writing new posts.

Basic Post Editing Screen

Your Drafts

Drafts are posts that have been saved for later publishing. If there are posts written and saved created as a Draft, they will be listed above the Write Post title. Click on the title link to open that posts' Write Post edit screen, edit the post, and when you are ready, click Publish and it will be released to your site and to the world.


This is where the title of post is set. Any words or phrases can be used.


The Discussion section has two checkbox choices. One for Allowing Comments and the other for Allowing Pings. If Allowing Comments is unchecked the new post comments to this particular post won't be available. If Allowing Pings is unchecked, no one can post pingbacks or trackbacks to this particular post.

Password-Protect Post

For keeping particular post private so that only those with the password can read it.


The list of categories on site are placed. By default, the uncategorized category will be checked unless the name of that category has been stated already.
