The ‘Create a New Post’ button should be in the top right of the site. If it doesn’t appear you might not have author permissions in order to create posts.

Clicking this will take you to the post editor:

The image above shows the editor in the ‘Visual’ tab, this will give an idea of how the post will look. Sometimes this can be inaccurate, so take it as a rough estimate. The HTML tab allows you to create a post using element tags. You can also put scripts and code in this tab.

Once you’ve finished the post content, on the left hand side there is the menu for posting and tagging. Open up the ‘Categories & Tags’ section.

Pick or create some tags that are relevant to the post. This will allow the post to be categorised on the WordPress site,
