Media Ecology sessions ECA

Only one of these is sponsored by MEA but there’s stuff at the intersections out there and it would great if we all supported that.

2019 WordPress Step-by-Step

So here’s where you start:

Use your RWU Google Account to create a WordPress Account

Step 1: Fill in the form… put your RWU UserId in the first field and then use my suggestions below for the rest of the fields.

Step 2: Put your User ID in the first field and then scan down to the first FREE option and select that. NOTE: Do not choose an extension like .com, etc. That will put you into the paid options!

 

Step 3: Choose the FREE (Best for students) option.

Step 4: Create your wordpress account using your RWU email address, RWU UserID and a password you won’t forget (maybe your RWU password?)

Step 5: You will have to go to your RWU email account and confirm your address.

Step 6: Activate your account by clicking on the link in the email you received.

Step 7: You’re all set — create your first blog post… or do any of the other items in the list EXCEPT purchasing a domain name. You don’t need that now.


CREATING A CATEGORY ON A WORDPRESS SITE

There are a few ways to do this. The simplest way is to click on “Categories & Tags” in the right side menu.

Then click on “Add new category”. That’s it.
