How can I edit my WordPress site?

Once you have installed WordPress, you naturally want to edit your own WordPress site. When editing your own WordPress site, however, I would like to go into two different ways of editing.

  1. Administrative processing
    The administrative processing of the WordPress site, such as installing and configuring plugins and themes.
  2. Content editing
    Content editing includes writing new blog articles, editing existing articles, but also other content adjustments.

How can I edit my WordPress site?

If you want to edit your WordPress site, you must first log into the WordPress backend “/wp-admin”. The difference, however, is that you should not use your admin login to write content, as content is typically owned by a regular user. You can also use this to log in as an administrator. However, you then have numerous other configuration options in the WordPress backend.

If you would like to edit your WordPress site, i.e. create new posts or edit existing posts, you will find the “Posts” tab in the sidebar on the left after you have successfully logged in. Here you can display all posts on your WordPress site and select one for editing, or create a new post.
