How To Manage WordPress Content

Learn how to manage WordPress content. Our step-by-step tutorials show you how to add, delete, maintain, update, and protect your content using WordPress.

WordPress Maintenance System - Getting OrganizedThis tutorial is part of our WordPress Management tutorial series. In this tutorial, we break down all of the content sections that needs managing in WordPress and provide links to our tutorials on how to manage these.

How To Manage WordPress Content

With WordPress, you can set up categories, tags, links, and widgets to organize your content, add text and images, and embed media (e.g. videos, audios, online presentations, etc) and other content types into posts and pages, approve and delete comments posted by visitors and registered users, allow other users to add, edit, or delete content on your site, and more.

Where Does WordPress Store Your Content?

As WordPress is a content management system, all of your content is organized into separate features like Posts, Pages, Media Libraries, etc. and stored in your WordPress database and special folders on your server.

For example, here is how your posts are stored in your WordPress database …

Post content stored in your WordPress database

(Post content stored in your WordPress database)

If you store content inside your WordPress installation files (e.g. storing images in the WordPress media library), your content files will be saved to folders on your server (e.g.  ‘wp-uploads’ or ‘wp-includes’ folder) …

Content stored inside WordPress folders

WordPress Makes Managing Content Easy

Fortunately, with WordPress, you don’t have to work inside a database or server files to manage your content. As WordPress is a content management system, all of your content is organized inside easy-to-manage features like Posts, Pages, the WordPress Media Library, etc. and stored in a WordPress database on your server.

Managing content in WordPress, therefore, is done by going into different WordPress features (e.g. Posts, Pages, Media Library), selecting items from a table or list on the main screen of each feature and then adding, editing, or removing specific items or sections of content within the post, page, or media library itself, as well as managing additional content such as comments and custom post types.

WordPress Content Management Tutorials

We have hundred of detailed step-by-step tutorials that show you how to use WordPress to create, deliver and manage your content online. We recommend going to our WordPress Tutorials Index or visiting our site map to browse all of the tutorials on WPCompendium.org.

WordPress Content Checklist

Use this WordPress content checklist to help you prepare the initial content you will need to get your new website launched.

WordPress Site Content - ChecklistThis tutorial is part of our WordPress installation step-by-step training module, where we show you how to install a WordPress site or blog with no coding skills required.

***

Installing WordPress on your domain only takes a few minutes. Configuring WordPress settings after the installation takes a little longer (1-2 days or more), but preparing the initial content prior to launching your site is what takes the longest time. This is why we recommend that you start thinking about your content now before installing and configuring WordPress.

Launching A WordPress Site - Timeline

(Launching A WordPress Site – Timeline)

Whether you plan to create the content yourself, get it outsourced, or a combination of both, allow at least a week or two to source and create all of the content you will need for your website or blog. This tutorial will help you prepare this content.

Your New WordPress Site – Content Checklist

If you have been following our tutorials and have all of the technical requirements in place (i.e. domain name, web hosting and domain nameservers), all that is left to do before installing WordPress is to get your content ready and choose a WordPress Theme for your new site.

To help you save time with this step, we have created the Initial WordPress Content Checklist below.

1) Content

Make sure you have the following content ready to add to your site:

  • Business name and a brief description of your business.
  • Site Categories – Your main service/product categories.
  • Home Page & Company Pages. Content about your company, the problems and challenges that your business or solutions help to solve, benefits and features, pricing, etc.
  • “About Us” page.
  • Products/Services pages.
  • Images & artwork for content, product images, logos, banners, etc. Image format = .jpg, .png or .gif.
  • Media files (e.g. videos, PDF files).
  • Contact Details (business address, email addresses, telephone numbers, etc.)
  • 3 – 10 initial articles/posts (saved in Word document or plain text file).
  • Customer testimonials.
  • List of all links and URLs (e.g. social media accounts, resources, affiliate links, etc).

2) WordPress Theme (Site Design)

With WordPress, you no longer have to pay web designers thousands of dollars to get a professional looking website and then wait around for weeks until your web design is ready.

The WordPress community includes many professional web designers who provide WordPress users with thousands of high-quality WordPress Themes, and many of these themes are 100% free to use!

Now, all you have to do is select a WordPress Theme for your site, and follow our step-by-step tutorials to learn how to install any WordPress theme on your website in just a few clicks.

Useful Tip

If you refer to our WordPress Digital Business Blueprint which explains how to save time and money using WordPress, you will see that you can launch your website quickly starting with any WordPress theme you like. Then, as your site begins to grow and attract visitors (following our WordPress Traffic Automation Blueprint), you can choose from thousands of great themes and completely change the look and feel of your website in minutes … whenever you want!

  • Product/Promotion Banners. If you would like to feature rotating images or banners on your site, then you will need to create these and write down the destination URLs where users will be sent to.

Useful Tip

Please ensure that all rotating banners are of identical dimensions and that your vertical banners will fit into the sidebar of most WordPress themes. Use standard banner sizes, e.g.:

Banner format = .jpg, .png, or .gif.
