How can I manage my site using the WordPress Admin Panel?

The WordPress Admin Panel is where content on a site is created and maintained; it’s where you write what everyone else sees.

The Welcome to WordPress! block at the top will tell you all about WordPress. The At a Glance gives you some statistics on your site, like how many posts and comments you have. On the right, you can see a block concerned with drafts of posts that you’re writing.

The left-hand menu contains the most useful parts of the page.

The three items you should know about for producing and editing content are Posts, Pages, and Comments. Learn more about creating and editing content on your site.

The most important items for customizing your site’s appearance can be found under Appearance and Settings. Learn more about adjusting your site’s appearance.

Plugins allow you to add extra features to your site. Read about available plugins and how to use them in our plugins guide.

Finally, Users allows you to open your site to other contributors. Follow the guidelines at the end of our Group Roles tutorial to help you determine how and when to invite other users.
