In this video I walk you through the Wordpress Editor and the functionality within it. Many people are confused by all of the "buttons" and I am going to be walking you through each and every one of them.

I also am going to explain the difference between a page and a post, something that is a unnecessarily confusing to many folks, so I will be adding some clarity to this.

If you have any questions about the content within this video, please do let me know and I will give you a hand.

I have a question but I'm hesitant to post it here as there are questions that I never get answers to.???
I have noticed on other people's websites that they have used an entirely different font, size, and color within a post or on a page. How do I accomplish this? The only thing that I caught in this video is how to change the color. I know about the different Htags and that isn't what I refer to when I asked about the font size though.. Thanks.

In the video it shows where it says "paragraph" on the left it also has a click down menu, that is where you can choose your font size. Hope this helps:)

No, I've seen the video and know what all of the HTags (that is what those different sizes and styles are called=HTags) do if used within my post or page. What I meant is that instead of a size 12 front in cambria, can I change it to a size 8 in gothic bold? Like you can do within a wordpad document?
I'm thinking that the only way to make these kinds of changes would be to make a screenshot of what you want in any given place and paste it into the spot where you want the changes to occur? I know this is alot of information to take in and understand if it makes no sense.
thanks.

Hi, did you get a response?

I watched an older webinar the other day that touched on it a bit by Jay. I'll find the link and put it here if you are interested.

I am very interested since looking at the same old font and size and color gets a bit boring. Thanks.

Kyle I have a question about all in one seo editor. If i have affiliate links attached to a keyword.Should I use the no follow link option.
I remember reading somewhere Google will punish a site if it sends their robots to affiliate sites. Is There any truth to that?

This video is good for a very quick lesson, but as one who has absolutely NO knowledge of WordPress, I'll need a lot more training, especially since this will be the foundation of building my website.

I borrowed "WordPress for Dummies" from the library recently; I may have to buy a used copy from Amazon.

Hi Kyle, I just wanted to comment about the "Align Full" button. You've mentioned in the video you've never really used it so it seems useless. I frequented the Word Document, and the "Align Full" is actually called "Justify".

Now, what that does is it aligns the paragraphs from end to end so it doesn't have a trailing space on the right side of the page. Like how textbook paragraphs are aligned. It's from end to end, and to me it's really useful and it really helps get your page looking really neat and clean. Personally, this is neater to me than using the Align Center feature. If you want an example, you can visit my site thequibblerjournalist.com. All our posts there are aligned full (justified).

It's always helpful to have someone else walk us through how something works! I learned a couple of things.
There was one icon Kyle was not sure about what it does...the 3rd icon in on the second line...it's a justify button...if you select all your text and push this button all of your text will be sqare off...I think it makes things look a bit neater...it's a visual thing!
