WordPress has focused on providing people with an easy way to publish online content.
Individuals and businesses have found that they can quickly and easily upload content to their website including content such as blog posts, guides, white papers and many other forms including video and audio content.
As WordPress has grown, it’s improved the aspects of content publication. Users can easily make changes to existing website content. It’s easy to paste content from other sources like Microsoft Word. And it’s easy to check the HTML markup to make sure the formatting is correct before publishing to a live website.
Here are a few more details about WordPress content and how easy it is to manage a website using the system.
Fill In The Blanks
Many content management systems require you to go through numerous screens just to upload a single post. It’s hard to know which fields to fill in and which to leave blank. WordPress is basically a fill in the blank system. When you need to add a new post, enter the text you need, use the editor buttons to upload different types of media, choose when to publish, enter your categories, choose your tags and schedule your post.
In just a few short steps, which are all on the same page, you’re able to upload, optimise and publish your post. Even if you install plug-ins, such as WordPress SEO, the same fill in the blank format is there to make it easy for even beginners to understand and use.
Similar To Word Processors
One thing that sets WordPress content apart from other site creation tools is the familiar word processor style post editor. Most users are already used to the icons in the editor. For instance, users already know to press B to bold text or press the U to underline text. Instead of spending hours trying to find the options they need, they already know what all the buttons do and can focus on simply uploading and formatting their content.
Upload Anytime, Anywhere
You’re not forced to wait for a professional to upload your content. All you have to do is add a new post or page, enter the content you want to appear, format it and publish it. Users prefer WordPress because all they need to do is log-in to their dashboard and choose what type of post to create. They then fill in the editor, choose a publish date and their site is updated.
Plus, since WordPress is web based, you can manage your site from anywhere. You don’t have to sit at a specific computer. Your site is accessible anywhere with an Internet connection. Whenever you find something you want to post, log-in and post.
More Than Just Text
Uploading more than just text on many blog posts is difficult. WordPress even simplifies adding audio, video and images. From media friendly post types to following the prompts using the Add Media option in the post editor, you can quickly add tutorial videos, graphics, podcasts and much more to your website. You can even embed media to share content from YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud and more.
Plus, it’s simple to manage media once you’ve uploaded it. The media manager lets you add tags and descriptions to every media item and organise them into folders to use later. WordPress takes you far beyond just text and is a full content management system.
Create A Full Site
WordPress themes make creating WordPress content even easier. With everything already laid out, all the user needs to do is manage the content side. When you create pages, for instance, you can easily choose where they’ll show up on your site with just a few clicks. Posts are categorised and added to different elements, such as recent posts or most popular posts, all by you choosing a category and publish date.
All of this makes it easy to create more than just a blog. When you’re able to add content this easily, you have the power to create full-fledged websites. With no coding experience necessary, anyone is able to create a highly professional website for their business or hobby.
Uploading and updating website content is the most basic need for most individuals and businesses that have websites. WordPress has always and continues to make it easy to manage your website’s content.
While other content management systems continue to struggle with user experience, WordPress remains the easiest to use. It’s one of the main reasons people are loyal to WordPress and a reason so many new users join WordPress every day.
