After you install a new WordPress website, you’ll be greeted with the admin interface. This is where you’ll manage all aspects of your site. While many of your options are straightforward, it can still feel overwhelming to figure out where you should start.
There’s no need to worry, however. Once you start digging into WordPress’ settings, you’ll notice that most of them are pretty easy to tinker with and understand. For the options that aren’t so clear, you’ll have this guide to fall back on.
