How To Create a Post in DIVI Theme
Please login to the backend of your website. On most websites it will be http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin
Enter your userid and password.
Depending on your user role, you will be able to create posts, add images, and publish. User roles that are allowed to publish posts are Administrator, Editor, and Author. Contributors are able to create posts, add images, but will need approval for publishing.
From the dashboard, please highlight Posts, and click on “Add New”.
3. Create a New Post
First, please enter your post title.
Secondly, please click the Purple Bar titled “Use The DIVI Builder” to customize your post.
4. Customize your post
The DIVI Builder allows you to build really fancy looking posts. However, for now we can keep it simple. We will just insert a text module.
Step 1: click on insert Column
Step #2: Select a full width column (The first one)
Step #3: Click on Insert Module
Step #4: Select Text Module (Second row, Second Column).
Now you have created a text module, and have a very basic post structure. You can do other fancy things like add images, videos, music files, and many other things. However, this is just a basic tutorial.
5. Write Your Post.
To Start Writing your post click on the three parallel lines on the Text module.
You will see the edit screen. Scroll down to where you can edit the text. Once you are done, please click “Save & Exit”
7. Set Your Post Category
WordPress allows you to group different posts into categories. This allows readers who are interested in a particular category to browse similar posts and also provides for excellent search engine optimization techniques.
8. Set A Featured Image for Your Post
One of the most powerful ways to make your post attractive is to set a featured image that will be automatically displayed with your post, and in post sliders whenever your post is shown. When selecting an image, always think about the idea that the image is conveying. Is the image describing what the post is about without necessarily using words.
Pixabay is a great resource for free images that you can use on your website.
To set a featured image
You can either select from the media library of your website, or upload a new image
If you see an image in the media library that you like, simply select it and click “Insert Image”. Otherwise you can upload a new image. Click on Upload files and simply drag and drop the image you want to upload. Once the upload is complete you can just press insert image.
9. Save a Draft or Submit for Review or Publish
Once you are done you can either save a draft to continue later, or you can submit for review or publish depending on your access level.
