Navigating the WordPress Dashboard

Once the installation is complete, the first thing you want to do is log in to the WordPress Dashboard. Administrator Usually, there is a link on the login page on the front of the WordPress blog. However, some themes do not have this link. In this case, the easiest way to log in to WordPress is to add a WP-admin at the end of your website address like this:

This URL will direct you to the screen counter, the screen where you will be asked to enter the administrator username and password. Remember, you entered these details during the WordPress installation. If you’ve forgotten your password, click Forgot your password? Link. More detailed instructions on how to count a login on WordPress can be found here.

After logging in, you will see the Administrator Dashboard. It’s designed to give you an overview of your entire website and includes 3 main sections:

  1. A toolbar at the top of the page. It contains links to the most commonly used administrative tasks and resources. For example, if you hover over your website’s name, you’ll find a link to your site’s public view. It also displays simple instructions like updating and counting new comments.
  2. The main navigation menu on the left. It contains links to all the administrative admin screens in WordPress. If you hover over a menu item, a submenu with additional items will appear.
  3. The main work area.

The first time you log in to the WordPress admin panel, you will see a welcome module that has some useful links to help you get started. Once you’re comfortable with the dashboard, press the Dismiss button to hide this module.

Other modules:

  1. At a glance, the box tells you how many posts, pages, and comments you have. It also shows the WordPress version and the theme you’re running.
  2. The activity box gives you a little more information about your latest posts and comments. It shows the status of all comments and a shortlist, of recent comments.
  3. Quick Draft B .x. Entering content in these boxes will start a new blog post. However, you can’t publish one here because these boxes are only for blog post ideas to come back to later.
  4. WordPress News. This module displays the latest WordPress news.

Each of these windows has a little arrow that you can use to quickly hide the keys. You can drag and drop them in different positions.
