Having Trouble With WordPress? Check Out These Tips!
Would you like to start a blog of your own? Maybe you are already blogging with WordPress, but believe you can get more out of it. There are a variety of tools and plugins that will improve the appearance of your blog. Put the following tips to use in order to make your blog amazing.
If your post’s title is lengthy, shorten the permalink. Avoid cumbersome URLs like “The Ten Ways Intelligent Parents Manage Their Children.” Alter the permalink to include only the keywords.
Sometimes you might think some changes you’ve made weren’t saved. This most likely is not true. To remedy this, try clearing your browser’s cache. Just press and hold your “shift” key while refreshing your browser and your changes should appear.
You must specify if you want your post to appear in other than chronological order. Rearrange your list by changing the date. To do this, locate the date in the upper right corner of an open post. Changing the date and saving it will re-position it.
Work on creating a better greeting for the top of your WordPress website. You will be able to understand how your user located your blog, and this will provide your user with a more personal experience. Your webpage will be less automatic looking, and will be accessible via the Greet Box plugin.
Ensure that it is possible for users to forward articles from your site to their email easily and at will. This is essential for sharing purposes, since not everyone uses Twitter or Facebook while working. You can use a plugin called WP-Email to help you do this.
Your username should never be “admin”. Words like “admin” or “administrator” often attract malicious bots who are seeking security breaches. This is a major security risk. If you see these usernames on your pages, delete them. Choose something else.
Security is of the utmost importance in WordPress, so never share your password. In addition, don’t download plugins from disreputable sites and always read the reviews before installing any plugin. Otherwise, you are vulnerable to hackers and malware.
There are quite a few things you must do to have a successful blog. Knowing what plugins and content to use can mean the difference between a blog that is passed over and one that attracts notice. Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of WordPress. Now start putting this knowledge to work on your site so more people look at it.
