Make a new PAGE – ignore ‘Posts’:
– Login to WordPress > Dashboard Menu > Pages > Add New
– Give it a title
– Type in content in the text editing window
– Project pages: Make title of work bold, followed by year
– If a Photography project, select ‘photography’ as a ‘parent page‘ from right hand side of the dashboard and ‘order‘ where it should appear in the pages list
– Click ‘Publish‘ on right hand side of Dashboard when done and Update each time you edit the content
– Link page to an image on the Photography index page: Click Link icon on toolbar > click ‘link options’ > select page you want the image to link with. Press Update
– You can keep the site page open in another tab to quickly view the changes look OK after updating. Remember to refresh the browser window after each update to see the changes

No need to format type in any way if simply written in. If copy-pasted from another site, you may need to ‘clear formatting’ with eraser-tool from the text-editing toolbar.
No need to change type size. Small type only used in ‘back to index’ link on Photography project-pages, which you can simply copy-paste from an existing page
Left-alignment used throughout.
Use bold for titles


Adding Images to Pages
– Click ‘Add Media’ above the text editing window
– Click ‘Upload Files’ in the Media window > select the file from your computer you wish to bring into the Media Library
– Click ‘Insert into Page’
– Click image > click pen-icon to edit the image or to add a caption
– Caption appears on index page but delete caption when image is on the main project space
– Sometimes image goes to the top of the page after making a caption. Content easier to re-order in ‘Text’ mode of the editing window (top-right corner of editing window)
– Horizontal images, max out size to 1000px: Click pen icon after placing image on page > Display Settings > Size > Custom size >type in 1000px for width, height adjust proportionally
– Copy ‘back to index’ link from an existing project page and paste at the end of a page

Technical info on a caption
– On a project page, click the pen-icon to edit the caption
– After the name type in short code <br> and continue immediately with the format, add comma, then dimensions. This places the techincal info on a line below the title but still keeps it within the caption
– Index page captions only have the title, no technical info


Adding Pages to the Menu
– Dashboard Menu > Appearance > Menus
– In the Pages box, click the page you want to add, click Add to Menu
– In Menu Structure box, drag the grey bar to arrange the menu order
– Make a Project page a submenu item by nudging the grey bar a bit to right, while it’s under ‘photography’. Drag to correct location in menu

> click ‘Share’ on the video screen (paper plane symbol)
> Click small type ‘show options’ next to Embed field
> bottom of the box, unclick all boxes in ‘Intro’ + unclick ‘Show text link underneath this video’
> copy the iframe code from Embed field
> go to Video page in Dashboard
> Click ‘Text’ tab on top-right corner of the editing field
> Paste in the iframe code + click Update
> Add the video title on top of the video field + Update

Housekeeping to avoid hacks
If WordPress hasn’t automatically updated, always update if one is available – red dot by the dashboard tells you this. Also update plugins.
