Starting to Blog and Building Your Community
n this chapter, I ll take you through some simple steps to enhance your blog and build your community. First, you ll look in a little more depth at posting to your blog, using both the standard and advanced editing options. I ll show you that you don t need to have any great HTML skills to make rich content for your site. Then you ll see how to manage categories, manage comments, add multiple authors for your site, and create blog pages. During the course of this chapter, you ll install and use two plug-ins, giving you an idea of what WordPress plug-ins can help you do on your site. Finally, I ll give you some tips on improving the search engine visibility of your site, to attract more visitors.
Using Basic Post Options
In the previous chapter, you created your first post and got a glimpse of the options available for writing posts. Here, I ll describe these options in more detail. You will need to go to the Write Post page to follow along with the discussion. If you are already logged in to your blog, click the Site Admin link at the bottom of the sidebar. If you are not logged in, click the Login link in the same place. From the Dashboard page, click the Write link.
Marking Up Your Post with Quicktags
As you are writing your post, you can use the quicktag buttons, as shown in Figure 15-1, to add some markup to your posts. Table 15-1 shows the functions of these buttons.
Figure 15-1. You can use the quicktag buttons to mark up your post.
CHAPTER 15 STARTING TO BLOG AND BUILDING YOUR COMMUNITY
Table 15-1. Quicktag Functions
Quicktag
b i link b-quote del ins img ul ol li code more lookup Close Tags
Function
Adds strong tags to some text for stronger emphasis Adds em tags to some text for emphasis Adds a link to your post Adds blockquote tags to your post Marks up text as deleted (usually rendered with strike-through) Marks up text as inserted. (usually rendered as underline) Adds an image to your post Starts an unordered list in your post Starts an ordered list in your post Adds an item to your unordered or ordered list Marks up text with code tags Adds a special WordPress more tag to your post Allows you to look up a word in an online dictionary Closes any open tags in your post (but you should normally close them yourself to achieve the markup you intend)
By using these quicktags, you are marking up the text of your post to describe its meaning. You can emphasize a word, set off a quoted block of text, type out a list of points, and so on. Unlike with a word processor, you are not directly styling your text. You will do that with the CSS of the theme you choose for the blog, as you ll learn in the next chapter. One way to use the quicktags is to select the text in your post you want to mark up, and then click the corresponding quicktag button. For example, if you have written a sentence and want to emphasize a word or phrase, select the words and click the b or i button. This will enclose your selected words with <strong> or <em> tags, respectively. The <em> tag marks up a word or words as emphasized. Your browser usually represents this by rendering the words in italics. The <strong> tag means a stronger emphasis and is usually rendered as bold. Another way to use quicktags is to apply them first, and then add the text you want to affect. For example, suppose you are writing a post about an article you read on another web site. You know you want to paste in a block of text as a quotation from the article, marked up with the <blockquote> tag. Click the b-quote quicktag button, and an opening <blockquote> tag will be inserted in your post. You can then paste in your quoted text, as shown in Figure 15-2. You ll see that the b-quote quicktag button has changed to /b-quote. This indicates that you have yet to close the opening <blockquote> tag. Click the button again, and the closing </blockquote> tag will be inserted. Another quicktag worth noting is the link quicktag. Click the button, and a little dialog box pops up, asking you to Enter the URL, as shown in Figure 15-3. Type in your URL, and then click OK. The opening anchor tag <a> is inserted in your post with the URL you specified. Type in the words you want to be linked (that is, the words the reader will click on). Click the button (which now says /link) again, and the closing anchor tag </a> will be inserted. Alternatively, if you already have the link words typed into your post, you can use a shortcut: select the words, and then click the link quicktag button. The same dialog box pops up, asking for your URL. After you enter the URL and click OK, the anchor tags for the link will be inserted around your selected words, creating the link in one step.
