Managing WordPress Options and Settings

The WordPress software allows you to control many settings on your website. Click on Settings, and you will see seven links, within which you can change many options. Most are clearly explained on the control panels, but for extra detail we believe you may find useful see below:


General Allows you to set the title of your website, its tagline, URI (web address) information, user membership default information and date representation.
Writing Here you can set the various options surrounding how you can write posts. It also allows you to set the size (number of lines) of the textbox in the Post editor, as well as the default category used for newly created links and posts. You can also create a secret email address to which you can send new entries for
your site – this can be good if you need to update the site from difficult locations or via a smartphone.
Reading This shows settings for reading the website – for example how many posts will be shown at a time on a page. You can also select a Post or Page to be displayed on the front page of the site.
It also sets options for syndication – this is a system that allows people to use readers to access your information remotely via RSS feeds.
As of version 3.5 you can also now find a ‘Search Engine Visibility’ checkbox here. Before 3.5 this was in a separate section called ‘Privacy’.
Discussion Here you will set options relating to how people can make comments, for example whether the comments need authorising before showing on the site (advisable to prevent comment spam), the default comment settings for articles
Media Here you will be able to set the default sizes for images in Posts or Pages, the path to the ‘wp-content/uploads’ folder on the server and specify whether you want uploaded files to be organised into month and year based folders.
Permalinks Permalinks are a way of structuring your website so that the address to an article makes some sense to humans and search engines

NOTE  The version of WordPress used in our screenshots, has a plugin activated called ‘Native
Dashboard’, which has own settings listed in this area too. It’s worth bearing in mind that certain plugins may add different features and/or change the appearance of your site’s back end.

Appearance
In WordPress you have the facility to easily switch between different layouts for your site. Selectthe Themes option from the Appearance menu and you will see a list of available themes on your installation. Usually that will include the themes installed on your server, and usually the default theme (currently known as the “Twenty Fourteen” theme) that is supplied by default with WordPress.
To select a theme, simply hover over it – you can then select to view a ‘live preview’: this will then give you a preview of how your site will look using that theme in a pop-up window.

If you like the look, you can then activate the theme by clicking on the ‘Activate’ link in the top lefthand
corner of the preview box.
An expert can actually edit their themes from the Theme Editor tab. However, we don’t recommend doing it this way. You may also find that your webserver configuration will prevent


Widgets
A widget is simply a block, usually with control over what it displays, which can be moved around.For example, you can place in a sidebar a widget that displays the latest comments on your site.Some themes provide a large selection of widget spaces which allow you to place content in a widerange of spaces. Really advanced themes create widget spaces on the fly – for example, if you create a page according to a certain template. That can make for a very sophisticated website.
With the Twenty Fourteen theme we’re currently using, you have one ‘Primary’ sidebar and an additional ‘Content’ sidebar area, as well as a ‘Footer Widget Area’. Different themes will have other numbers/types of widget areas. If you have a fresh install and no widgets have been installed you will see that the sidebar is empty.



Right, now you know how to use widgets we can now turn our attention to getting the Page and Category lists to show in the sidebar by dragging the “Pages” and “Categories” widgets into the Primary Widget Area.
You can specify your own titles for the Pages and Categories widgets if you want and these titles will appear as headings on the site’s sidebar above the content generated by the Widget
