Once you have followed the 'create' (link above) instructions and activated your blog from an email sent to you, the next email you receive will provide two options:
Login | Visit Your Blog
I would login first up
and take a look around the Wordpress 'DashBoard'
basically the tool for writing posts and creating pages on
your blog. It is not your blog its the site development work area
that only you see and use.
If you want to see
your blog after entering Dashboard than look to the top of the page
and next to the name of your blog you will see the link 'Visit
Site'. If you click on that link it opens you blog to whatever URL
you have created i.e.
Please note that
will also find your home
One of the first things people want to do after
making a few posts and perhaps creating a page or two is add images.
You can upload images to your library or directly insert them into a
post or page by clicking on the 'Add media' option that appears
above the write edit box next to Visual | HTML view options. Haven't
been there yet! The top menu item at the very top of Dashboard where
it saids 'Write' will take you there.
Alternatively we have included an option to link your Wordpress blog to an existing Flickr photo account you may have at Yahoo. If you don't have one its worth considering an account there.
To creatre a Flickr account at Yahoo to to http://www.flickr.com/
How do you link to my Flickr photo Gallery?
There is a plugin you can activate by
simply being in Dashboard and clicking on the Plugins link on the
top right hand side. Once you are there you can activate the various
plugins we have provided. The one that saids something about Flickr
is the plugin I am referring to to add images or rather to link to
your Flickr account. You have the best of both world a flexible
Wordpress Blog linked to a Flickr account.
Now what do I do?
say you want to add an image to your post or perhaps a page. While
in Dashboard click on the link 'Write' which appears at the top but
below 'Visit Site'. Select either Post or Page. What will appear is
an edit window which you can do visual or in a HTML format.
If you don't know what HTML is just use Visual. When you
come to a part in what ever your writing about where you want an
image look below the edit box, below 'Categories' if posting or if
writing a 'Page' directly below the edit area. You will see the
words, akWpUploder: Alternative Wordpress Image Uploader Using
From thereon its very straightforth. Enter your
Flickr ID and a way you go with all the images you have at Yahoo
ready for use within your post.
