WordPress Tips And Tricks Everyone Should Know
Do you want to create an hyperlink in your post that references an older post?
Rather than having to type out the URL or look for it in another window/window, use the search for other content arrow in the link box. Choose the link you’d like and click ADD LINK. There is no reason to check off the box “open in a new window” when you are referencing your own site. In fact, that can get super annoying for mobile readers. Only use that when you want to take someone to a webpage off of your site.
The screen options tab at the top right of the screen will give you more options on your post screen
Do you want to change the author or adjust the commenting ability? Enable all the options in the screen option tag. Then they will appear as options below your post to turn on/off or edit.
Your theme may support a format option on the right hand side
These options change the layout look of your post. The WordPress default themes use formats. Pick from the options to change the format of the page to match the type of media you want to display.
You can create “private” posts that are only available to a specified population of users
On WordPress.com, you can choose to make your entire blog private, but on self-hosted, the easiest way to hide content is to password protect it. In the publish box, click on visibility and change the setting. A box will pop up that allows you to write in a password. Click ok.
Pre-schedule your posts if you think you will be away for a while
Just be sure your timestamp is accurate to the time zone you are in! To change the timezone, go to Settings > General.
