Community Bloggers 102: How to edit a post

Once you’ve mastered creating a new post using WordPress, the next step is learning how to go back and make edits as needed. This video and step-by-step tutorial will take you through that process for our site.

  1. Login to our WordPress account with the link you’ve provided.
  2. Go to the “Blogs” section. You’ll be able to see the posts of all bloggers, but only be able to edit your own.
  3. Find the item you’d like to edit (tip: you can search for your title, or view all “Pending” posts).
  4. Click “Edit” underneath the title of that post.
  5. You can edit the text or add images now as you see fit. To add an image click “Add Media” and insert either a image’s URL or upload a file to use.
  6. Enter the caption for any images you’re inserting including the source of that image. Eg. Project management means people management. (Image source: Shutterstock.com).
  7. Adjust the size of the image to look great on the page. You can edit the image in this way by clicking on it, then clicking on the picture icon in the upper left-hand corner.
  8. Click the blue “Submit for review” button (if not published yet) or “Update” button if its already published.
  9. You can also edit your posts when viewing it on our site. If you’re logged into WordPress, a special navigation bar will appear on our site for you.
  10. Remember to use “preview” to look at your changes to make sure they appear as expected.
