Publishing articles is one of the most important functions of a website’s backend. WordPress’s article publishing functions are relatively powerful. Today, I will introduce you to the system.

Visit the background-article-write an article, you can see the interface as shown below:

Note: Advocate checked all the default function modules by clicking the “Display Options” in the upper right corner of the page , and dragged them to arrange them (understand “Display Options”). And divide it into 11 small points, which will be introduced one by one below.

1. Editing area

1. Title -Type a title for your article. After that, you will see a permanent link address, which can be edited.

2. Article editor -type in the text of your article.

  • (1) Switch editor mode

The editor has two editing modes: “Visualization” and “Text”. Click the corresponding tab to switch. “Visualization” mode displays the WYSIWYG editor. Click the last icon in the toolbar to expand the second row of control buttons; in the “text” mode, you can enter the original HTML tags and article text.

  • (2) Insert multimedia files such as pictures

You can upload or insert multimedia files (images, audios, documents, etc.) by clicking the “Add Media” button. You can choose from the files that have been uploaded to the media library and insert the article directly, or upload a new file and then insert it. To create an album, select the image you want to add and click the “Create New Album” button.

  • (3) Full screen editing mode

You can use the “full screen writing interface” through the “full screen” icon (second from last in the first line) in the “visualization” mode. After entering the interface, move the mouse to the top, and the control buttons will be displayed. Click “Exit Full Screen” to return to the standard editing interface.

Second, the status of the published article

You can set the attributes of the article in the “Publish” area. Click the “Edit” button to the right of “Status”, “Visibility”, and “Publish” to adjust more settings. Visibility settings include password protection and article top ; by setting publishing options, you can implement the regular publishing function (how to publish articles regularly).

Three, select article category

Very simple function, select category for your article (how to add article category)

Four, fill in the article summary

Some WordPress themes will call the article summary on the classified archive page, you can manually add the summary to this article here (usually 50-200 words)

Five, custom columns

Please move to “Introduction to WordPress Custom Fields and Usage Examples”

6. Send trackback (rarely used)

Trackback is a way to notify the old blog system that you have linked to them. Please enter the URL(s) to which you want to send the trackback. If you are linking to other WordPress sites, you do not need to fill in this field, and these sites will automatically be notified via pingback.

Seven, label

In addition to WordPress can associate articles through categories, but also through tags. Some WordPress themes will also automatically call the tags filled in here as the keywords (Keyword) of this article. The length of the label is generally 2-6 characters, generally 2-4 labels are enough. (The “popular label” in the sidebar of this site is a typical call)

Eight, featured images

WordPress 3.0+ introduced this “featured image” function (requires theme support). The featured image set here is generally used for calling the thumbnail of an article. Now the more complete WordPress themes support calling featured images as thumbnails. This is especially true of foreigners’ topics.

Nine, alias

The alias here is the same as the category alias introduced by Advocate in “Creating and Managing Article Categories”: it will appear in the URL of the article, making the link more beautiful and concise. Aliases are generally recommended to fill in English or Pinyin, not too long. (Note: This alias will be called as part of the url only if the permalink is set to the style containing the /%postname% field. How to set the permalink)

10. Author

Here you can point the author of the article, the default is the user you are currently logged in as

11. Discussion

You can set the switch for comments and trackbacks. If the article has comments, you can browse and review the comments here. If you do not allow others to comment on this article, just leave it unchecked.

Note: You can set the global discussion settings in the background-Settings-Discussion (such as whether to open the whole site comments, spam comment filtering, comment review, etc.)

Manage articles

Open the background-articles-all articles, you can see all the articles:

1. You can open the “Display Options” in the upper right corner to set the items and quantity to be displayed

2. Allows you to perform article selection and batch operations

3. Move the mouse to the title of the article, and the menus “Edit, Quick Edit, Move to Recycle Bin, View” will be displayed. If you only need to modify the attributes of the article (such as putting this article on top), use “Edit directly” That’s it; if you want to modify the content of the article, you must use “Edit”.


The above introduces the functional modules that come with WordPress. If you have installed some other plugins or some powerful WordPress themes, there may be more extended functional modules here, so you need to understand and use it yourself. Up.
