WordPress Dashboard Screen
Accessing the Dashboard in WordPress
Once you have setup WordPress on your hosting account, the first thing you will want to do is log in to the admin area. Logging in is fairly straight forward and the first screen you see is what is called the Dashboard.
The Dashboard is your welcome screen and it gives you so basic information and summary of activity and announcements.
From this point forward things become a bit tricky. As you begin to set up your WordPress Website this screen will become more and more unique to you and your website. It is this fact that makes it more and more difficult for you to find tutorials and guides to help you along. Many will never know this unless they have worked with a variety of websites that use WordPress. I have worked on dozens and each one has been different in its configuration and set up.
WordPress is merely a platform or framework. The Theme you select or create is what defines its look and basic functionality and I will get to that soon enough.
On the Dashboard, and every other screen, you will notice there is a vertical menu on the left hand side. Once again, from this point forward what you see in this area will vary and change as you setup and configure your WordPress Website further.
WordPress’s functionality and appearance can be further extended in a variety of ways. Plugins can be added, Themes can be enhanced and areas can be hard coded via straight programming. This is what makes WordPress so popular and it is really up to you. There is no one way to do anything which, once again, make it so difficult to find a How To Video on YouTube to help you out so bear that in mind if you plan to do this yourself for the first time.
Now that you have logged in to your WordPress site and reviewed the Dashboard what do you do next?
