Last Updated on April 14, 2020 by Next Century

In this guide, we will show you how to create a Post in WordPress.

Posts are treated much like digital entries into a journal and are displayed in chronological order with the most recent post at the top.

Pages and posts are both key components of a WordPress site.

Follow these steps to create a new WordPress Post:

  • Click Posts on the left navigation menu

  • Click the Add New button on the Posts page

  • Enter a title in the available field. This will display on the top of your Post.

  • Enter your page content in the available field. You can use the Editor to format your text.  You can also click the Add Media button to add images, audio, etc.

  • Once you have entered your information in the Post, click the Publish button. (You can also click Save Draft to save your work without publishing the Post publicly)

Congratulations, now you know how to create a Post in WordPress.
