How to Create a WordPress Post and Page

WordPress is built around two basic concepts. Posts and Pages. Both have their respective uses and can add very dynamic elements to your site. Posts and pages can be used to publish the same kinds of content. Both can include text and media presented in a range of layouts.

A Posts are news or informational updates that have a published/updated date and is displayed on the blog or news page. It appears in the reverse chronological order on the news or home page. Due to their reverse chronological order, your posts are meant to be timely. Posts usually use tags or categories to organise them

A page, in essence, are usually static content – the “About” and “Contact” pages can consider as an example. Unlike a post that will move towards the bottom of the pile as more posts are is added, a page will stay exactly where you put it. Instead of being organised into categories, pages are usually part of a hierarchical structure that you create yourself using hyperlinks and menus.

Adding a New Post

To add a new Post, hover over the Posts menu option in the left-hand navigation menu and in the fly-out menu, click the Add New link. Alternatively, click the Posts menu option and then click the Add New link underneath, or the Add New button at the top of the page. You will be presented with a page similar to the image below.

  • Post and Page Title – This first part of the post or page that is visible to your visitors on the site. enter the title of your post in this field.
  • Post and Page Content – you can use the WordPress WYSIWYG editor to add the actual content of your post. Note that it has two tabs – Visual (use the editor to format your text) and Text (add your HTML code directly).
  • Publish – once you have filled in all information you can preview the post on your site and you can change the date of publication, for example, on future date if you do not want to publish the post immediately. when you are ready to publish the post, click on the Publish button.
  • Format – choose the format of the post. formats, you can choose here how the post looks, otherwise you should leave this option as “standard”.

  • Tags – tags work similar to categories. However, you can assign posts from different categories to the same tag. Visitors can display all posts with the same tag by clicking the tag link. Choose a tag for your post or create a new one by clicking the “Add” button.
  • Featured Image – choose the image for the post. This is a representative image of a post. If your theme supports the featured images, probably it will be displayed, for example, on blog pages or on other pages for which your theme has enabled support.

Creating a New Post

Posts are blog entries—or articles—that are displayed in chronological order on your homepage, typically with the newest post at the top. Unlike pages, posts usually have comments fields beneath them and are also included in your site’s RSS feed.

Covered in this video:

  • Creating a new post in WordPress using the Posts > Add New > sub-panel.
  • Personalizing the Add New Post interface.
  • The new, auto-resizing editor.
  • Formatting text and content using the editing tools.
  • Assigning categories and tags to your post.
  • Adding a Featured Image to your post.
  • Postdating or scheduling a post for another time.
  • How to save and publish posts to your site.

Using Categories and Tags

This video demonstrates how to use categories and tags in WordPress to better organize your posts and make it easy for your readers to find related content.

Tags are essentially keywords that you assign to each post. They are typically displayed underneath each post. Someone viewing your blog can click on one of those tag links, and an archive page with all the posts containing that tag will be displayed.

Every post in WordPress is filed under one or more Categories. Categories allow your posts to be classifieds into groups and subgroups. If a visitor to your site clicks on a category link, an archive page with all the posts belonging to that category will be displayed. Unlike tags, categories may be assigned to a parent category, enabling you to set up a hierarchy within the category structure.

Covered in this video:

  • Understanding the difference between tags and categories.
  • Using categories and tags in WordPress to better organize related content.
  • How to add and edit categories using the Posts > Categories sub-panel.
  • Using category parents to sort content hierarchically.
  • How to add and edit tags using the Posts > Tags sub-panel.

Creating and Editing Pages

Page is another tool to add content to a WordPress site and is often used to present “static” content that doesn’t change very often. A good example of a page is the information typically contained in “About Us” or “Contact Us” pages. Pages should not be confused with posts. Pages live outside of the normal blog chronology, and as such, are not displayed with the rest of your posts, but are displayed individually.

Covered in this video:

  • Reviewing the difference between Pages and Posts.
  • How to create a new page in WordPress.
  • How to edit and delete pages using the Pages > Edit sub-panel.
  • How to bulk edit or delete multiple pages at the same time.
  • Using the Quick Edit tool to quickly change page details.

This commencing year there are many things in store that are going to grab attention worldwide. Technological advancements are going to transform the present lifestyle in a number of ways. Let’s take a look at the most anticipated tech trends of 2020.  

Technology Trends

Electronic Sims

This year is supposedly the year of commercial launch of e-sims and we can look forward to various applications and e-sim services which will be made available for the common masses. People will be able to use the facilities provided by the electronic sims and will not have to stand by until the new sim is sent to you through post or will not have to go out in order to buy one. Even though e-sims are already present however they will be commercialized and will be made accessible in general.

Sleep Technology 

The growing awareness and emphasis on the mental health has also led to the progress of tech trends that monitors the health of body and brain. Sleep technology will be in the limelight this year.

This has led to companies to try and make an effort to use machine learning to combat such fraud and protect their customers from such troubles.

Digital Twins and their Applications 

A digital twin is a model of a physical thing or entity. This digital twining makes it possible to combine the physical and virtual realities. With the help of such twins, for instance of a motor vehicle we are able to analyze the effects of certain conditions and factors over something (if an accident happens how much load or temperature body of a vehicle will handle etc.) Artificial intelligence and machine learning can also be a key assistance in the process of making a prediction about various conditions and what to do about it and allows you to choose the right course of action.

VERIZON’S ONESEARCH ENGINE

Verizon is a known American company which provides wireless and other telecommunication services. The most prominent part of version communication known to us all are Huff post, tech crunch and yahoo mail. In the past few years Verizon and the related sub-ordinate companies have been charged with failure of keeping the privacy policy and were held responsible for releasing private and confidential information of the users whether through a leakage or disclosure of data. The company had to pay more than one million fine to the Federal Communications Commission because of their use of super cookies which made it possible for them to track the users online without them knowing or giving consent. Not just this back in 2013, an incident of data breach occurred where accounts of millions of users were hacked. After taking into account all this history Verizon communications has launched a onesearch engine with increased privacy policy. 

This onesearch engine will allow users to search without having to worry about the record. The company will not keep track of your data that you search or of  personalized information , the data will neither be stored or not shared with advertisers or sponsors .Which means this search engine does not track cookies and provide information to advertisers meaning we will not spot advertisements according to our previous search on the internet. The search of a user will be encrypted and not traceable. Moreover, another significant and compelling addition is the self-destruct mode which will cause all the links of search history to be deleted forever. In the opinion of the creators of Verizon, this grants an added privacy to the users or in certain conditions where one device is in use of multiple people. Also it keeps the link safe if it is shared with other people.

This search engine will be a breath of fresh air in the present day world , with news coming up every now and then about leading social networking sites  such as Facebook , Google , amazon misusing their users privacy policy and using data for several other activities for generating extra credits. People were not much vigilant about their privacy rights on social media until recently, however now users make it their priority to use a more secure and safe platform. This is exactly why the new search engines or websites with increased privacy imparting a sense of security in users are gaining popularity. This search engine is going to instill a sense of trust within its users and will definitely be something people would want to try and keep using.

Artificial Intelligence Taking Over Jobs

Technology

Twentieth century was characterized by marked industrialization and technology taking over the world. Technology started from modification of simple things such as using a computer or software for data arrangement to the advanced tech manifestation such as artificial intelligence and machine intelligence. Industrial revolution was distinguished by many technological changes which ultimately had an effect on all possible factors of everyday life whether directly or indirectly. The utmost difference that was caused by this revolution was the lifestyle change. It took the living standards to whole another level with advancements in every field including transport, nature of work, housing systems, communication methods, food availability, and mass production. Revolution brought a change including technological tools, machines and items to use in the fields, factories and industries and this is why nature of work life and how humans live in the present world is entirely different from old times.

Robotics and Its Role In the Modern World

A branch of knowledge which involves both science and mathematics to design and create machines (robots) that can be used as a substitution of individuals and mimic their actions and human behavior. Robots can be of various shapes and sizes with different functionality and accordingly used for different purposes. With the technological advancements in 20th century robotics has been one of the fastest growing fields and been paving its way into all aspects including industrial, household, medical, agricultural or military work. There have been developed robots of various types which are able to perform different functions and are of use in different fields. For instance major robot implementation in various fields and how they work is explained below.

  • Military Robots 

These are the robots used in the dangerous situations where lives are at stake they perform functions such as seek, evacuate, defend and attack. Many robots are used for military purposes especially by US military and many are in the process of creation. Such robots are a substitution for the soldiers who would be in a life threatening situation or battlefield. Various kinds of robots are being developed with different kinds of applications including patrolling, keeping an eye with cameras and attacking an intruder or for border assignment etc.

  • Industrial Robots 

The massive utilization of robots is seen in industrial field. Five years back the reported number of industrial robots performing activities was 1.64 million and has been growing ever since. These robots are auto-mated and programmed to perform certain tasks which include organizing, collecting, dismantling etc. robots have now replaced jobs that were too dangerous for workers to do such as in mines, on extreme heights, working with enormous weights, welding or other jobs which required working in extreme temperatures. Not only this in order to increase mass production the jobs such as of arranging, inspection of products, labeling of products are taken care by robots now in an increased speed and with more accuracy which previously were done by the laborers but at much lower rate in the factories 

  • Medical Robot 

Advance medical centers are now equipped with robots working alongside humans. The most used form of robots is ‘telemanipulator’ that is controlled by a person (surgeon) on the one hand and performs the required operation on the other. There are surgical robots created which if programmed can perform the surgery in the absence of a doctor.  Rehabilitators are built for the management, therapy and take care of patients especially the elderly or someone who has a disability. There have been robots developed and used to clean and disinfect areas and rooms as required. However, these robots are rare and need a lot of work on them before they will be used at a larger scale.

  • Domestic Robots 

These are used mainly for doing house hold activities but can also involve in performing education, entertainment or other relevant tasks. From doing dishes to cleaning floors or even ironing clothes robots are performing all activities. There are robots made specifically for providing security and alarming in the presence of an intruder. The jobs of house cleaning, dish washing, ironing all household chores are now also done by robots instead of workers.

  • Agriculture Robots 

This is one of the major fields where robots have been used. Taking care of harvest, providing the right conditions, picking up ripped fruits, using sprays and fertilizers to protect crops are a few jobs that are now done by robots instead of laborers. This industry is ever growing and with the use of robots in industry its estimated worth is supposed to reach almost twelve billion in next five years.

Robots Substituting Laborers 

According to estimation almost eight billion people are assumed to lose their jobs and replaced by robots or machines. Especially in richer nations the workers are supposed to be replaced by the automated machines and need to retrain for work in other fields or for other kinds of job.

Following will be the most effected jobs.

  • Data Entry Relevant Jobs 

Such jobs which are associated with data entrance, gathering information, highlighting ideas, converting data formats, coping data from one place to another or any job which requires merely such skills will be replaced by artificial intelligence in coming years.

data entry
  • Journalism 

Artificial intelligence will be able to gather data more precisely, with a more in depth-analysis and more accurately do the constructive criticism on the available information and happenings.

  • Drivers  

After rechargeable cars the latest invention of auto –pilot and artificial intelligence and with successful attempts of AI driving cars and taking them for large distances the regular taxi driver might find their work effected. Moreover with multi- national companies providing taxi services for example uber , using automated taxis with AI will definitely change the nature of  this job availability.

driver
  • Industrial work

This industry is the first one to experience change with the technological inventions and the most affected one until date. Whether it is working in factories or on construction sites loads of jobs in this sector will be taken over by the robots. Packing, inspection, assembly, labeling etc. all such activities are now performed by automated robots and already have replaced human jobs.

  • Agricultural work

Using robots has proved to be more efficient than laborers working in the fields and this is why it has been used and it is a part of future plan to use these robots for the work in fields especially in harvesting.

  • Telecommunicates and customer services

With AI and ML in the play, and availability of chat boxes and much more customized AI services available to customers waiting on lines or online will not be preferred by many people.

Advantages of Technology Use 

The most significant advantage is the saving of lives which otherwise might be endangered or under a constant threat.

With robots use the mass production of food and other life necessities has become more advance ad fast and things are easily available.

Another advantage is the accuracy and efficiency added to each task. One might say the robots are programmed to work or strive to work perfectly and give results that are unquestionable. 

Disadvantages of Technology Use

The major crisis that we are facing due to excessive technology use is the replacement of people by robots or AI. It is supposed that in richer countries almost forty-five percent of jobs will be taken over. This is going to have a great influence on the lives of people globally.

What to do about it?

The most productive way of dealing with any problem is to look for solutions the same goes with this issue. Many people have the opinion that all we need to do is re-train the employers learn skills that are required to thrive in the jobs of different nature. Use of automated robots and AI in industries has proven and expected to increase economy in millions. Hence while taking in consideration the consequences; use of robots can be productive for the mankind.
