In this video I’ll show you how to start adding content (text and pictures) to your website. Written instructions are below the video:
(I use and love SiteGround as my WordPress host. You can see how I start with them from scratch at this video.)
1 – From your WordPress dashboard, click on Pages -> All Pages. This brings you to a screen where you can see all the pages we created in the last video.
2 – Click on whatever page you want to add content to. This pulls up an editor for that page.
3 – Add whatever text you would like, just like you would in a word processor. In the video I used some pre-written text but of course you can take your time to write whatever you’d like.
4 – To add a picture, click on “Add Media” and then “Upload Files”. From here you can select any picture from your computer.
5 – After uploading the file, you can enter a description, alternate text, and also the size of the picture and its orientation on the screen.
6 – Click update to publish the page to your site! As you can see in the video, you can always make changes to your picture or text from the edit screen. Just click “Update” again to republish.
