The content of your site is managed by the WordPress publishing system. While WordPress is extremely easy to use and intuitive, it helps to have a basic understanding of online publishing and blogging terminology.
Every time you add a story, WordPress puts a time stamp on the story. WordPress will always put your most recent stories on the front page. Older stories can be accessed through the category navigation menu, the archives link, or the search feature. Stories are also referred to as Posts.
In WordPress, you can write either Stories or Pages. For your site, Pages are used for static content, like the About page. Your site is designed for you to use Stories for your regular content.
Categories are used in WordPress to group similar posts. For your site, categories are also used to create your site navigation. An example category for your site would be “Sports.”
Like categories, subcategories are used in WordPress to group similar posts that are part of a bigger category. An example subcategory for your site would be “Winter Sports.” Subcategories are also referred to as “child categories” and main categories are referred to as “parent categories.”
Every element on your homepage (with the exception of the Top Stories Scrollbox) is a widget. Widgets can be added/removed/moved by using the drag and drop interface that you see if you click on Widgets under the Appearance tab.
Tags are keywords that aid your visitors in navigating and accessing all the posts with a specific Tag. Not to be confused with Categories, Tags have no hierarchy.
Whenever you click on the headline of a story or on the “Continue Reading” tag, your site takes you to the Permalink page for that story. A permalink is simply the permanent URL for a particular story.
A gallery is a collection of photos. A gallery can be shown as a slideshow or as a list of photos.
Album: An album is a collection of galleries. You can use an album if you want to showcase multiple galleries at once.
