WordPress Anatomy and How to Log In

In this screencast I will talk you through the basics of WordPress. I like to call it the “anatomy” – i.e.

  • Front Page
  • Header
  • Sidebar
  • Footer

I’ll also show you how to login to your backend and how to work with two browser tabs open at the same time. Enjoy!

  1. Hello – found you on youtube and DIG your teaching style. I am brand new to WP, someone started my page but didn’t follow through on “how” he set it up and why so I’m stuck with 15 pages from old website and trying to migrate them.

    One burning question about “LEAVE A REPLY”, why do I want this on every page? Honestly, I do NOT! and can’t figure out how to remove it.
    Any lessons on this?

    Please contact me regarding pricing for consultant fees to review, suggest enhancements and teach me or do them yourself.

    thanks much!

    1. Hi Robin, and welcome to the wonderful world of WordPress 😉

      Thank you so much for your feedback – I’ve been meaning to make some more workshops for a while, maybe this is a good encourangement to get started.

      To switch off comments on all your future posts and pages head over to Settings – Discussion and untick the third box from the top called “allow people to post comments”. When you write a new post, the Leave a Reply option will now be switched off by default. You can still switch this on for individual articles and pages. For existing posts, you can use the Quick Edit option and untick individual posts/pages quickly.

      Some premium themes have an option to override comments on pages (Thesis, Woo Themes and Elegant Themes) so so that box never shows on pages and only shows on posts (which makes more sense for static websites).
