Creating a Blog Post with Classic Editor
With the introduction of Gutenberg in WordPress 5.0 there are now 2 ways to create blog posts. In the following article, I’m going to show how to create posts by using the Classic Editor plugin with Gutenberg, or anyone using a WordPress version below WordPress 5.0.
To create a Blog Post, go to Posts – Add New
Putting together a Blog Post is pretty simple overall, though there are many components that need to be filled in order to make it “complete”.
Below is brief overview of different Blog Post components that will be used when putting together a Blog Post.
Blog Post Title
Start the process by adding in the Blog Post Title and then proceed to add content and all other details related to the Post.
If you skip adding the Title initially, the Post Permalink will end up having a number instead of the Post title like it should. You can still edit the Permalink later on if required.
Featured Images are used primarily as a Post preview or thumbnail image within a Listing Page, they are also used for sharing on social media (If not using Yoast).
In some cases, Featured Images are also used as a cover image within an actual blog post.
Please have a look at the Post Featured Image article for more information.
