Everything you need to know to get started using WordPress at blogs.evergreen.edu








Designing Your Site

Working with themes

Themes allow you to change the design of your blog at anytime. Changing your theme will not affect the primary content of your site.

Sidebars

Many themes support sidebar content. Often times if you don't anything to your side bar a default set of "widgets" will appear. You can change this by adding your own widgets.

Front Page and Navigation

Adding functionality to your site

  • Use plugins to enable new features in your site.
