Add a title to your post in the first open box under “Add New Post”
A “Permalink” line will appear, if you click the edit button, you can change the page URL title of your post..
You will then see a Microsoft Word-like set of toolbars. This allows you to edit your text, you can set your text to bold or italics, make a bulleted list, set alignment for your text or images, set a color to your content, add a YouTube video, and more. Hovering over each icon allows you to see what each icon does.
Next, the box below the toolbar section is where you will post the content for your post. NOTE: Do *not* copy and paste your content from a Word doc into this box. WordPress has a hard time reading Word styles and your blog post may turn out to have strange formatting problems if you do this.
It is best to copy and paste from Word, into “Notepad”, and copy from Notepad into your post box. Notepad will provide an unformatted text for you.
Once your text is in, you can add images (optional). Click your mouse where you would like your image to be placed within your text. Go up to the “Upload/Insert” line (above the toolbars) and click on that first icon which looks like a box inside of a box. (If you hover your mouse over it, the text will say “Add an Image”.)
- Click the Select button to locate the image you want to insert from your computer.

- Alignment = None, Left, Center, Right
