WordPress posts are where the bulk of your articles or blog posts live. Posts can be categorized, scheduled, and literally formated however you like.
In this WordPress tutorial I explain how to create posts, add excepts, how to publish them in various ways, and some basic best practices. You will also learn about some of the functions found in the main post editing screen.
