Alright, we’re now back at our dashboard. The next thing that I want to show you is how to add content to your pages. In particular, I want to start adding content to my About Us section, so what I do first is I navigate to the Pages link right here and click All Pages. Now, this right here is a list of all the pages you currently have on your site. I want to edit the About Us page, go ahead and click edit. Next we can start adding some text. What I like to do sometimes if I don’t have all the text that I want at a particular time, I go to this site right here, called Lorem Ipsom. Who knows what that even means? What it does is it creates some placeholder text. Right here, I go to, how many paragraphs do I want? Okay, I want five. Generate this Lorem Ipsom, here’s all of my filler text.

What I do is I just copy all of this, I know that this is just pure gibberish, but I’m using this as just like I said, as a placeholder, and then I go ahead and paste that into my text editor. I go ahead and update the page, and I go to the page itself and I click refresh, see how it all shows up? Now what about images, what if I want to add images to this page? Alright, good question. I’ll come back here and if I want to add media, go ahead and click this, and you can go ahead and select files from your hard drive, but I’m going to cancel out of that for right now. There already is some media on this, I believe. Let me see here, I’ll go ahead and click this right here, and let’s click update, let’s see how this looks. Click refresh, okay that doesn’t look the greatest in the world. Okay, let’s try to format this a little bit differently.

Let’s click this image, and you see all these little icons that show up right here? This is the alignment of the image. Right now it’s set to no alignment, instead I’m going to set it to aligned left so that the text flows around this image. Click update and refresh the page. There we go, it’s starting to take shape here. Alright, so that’s pretty much how you add just basic content and images to your WordPress page.
