In the last tutorial, we talked about using WordPress to write your blog. Now let’s talk about the content management function of WordPress background. Log in to WordPress control panel and click “manage” to enter the content management page.
There are six buttons under the content management part: article, page, upload, classification, file, import and export. If you use some other plug-ins later, there may be some more buttons here.
Enter the management function to open the article management page by default.
By default, the latest 15 articles are displayed here. Earlier articles can be found by clicking the bottom navigation button. You can also use the powerful search function provided by WordPress, as well as the function of browsing by month and by category. These functions are very user-friendly.
The information of the last 15 articles listed below the tool box includes the ID, time, title, category, number of comments, author, etc. there are three buttons, namely, view, edit and delete.
As we have known before, WordPress saves all information in the information base. When you save (note, not necessarily publish) an article or page, it gives the article or page ID, which is added in turn and unique for each article and page. Therefore, when you delete an article or page, although its content is deleted from the database, its ID is reserved, so that users can visit your website, so as not to mess.
The others are easy to understand. The last three buttons, click view to go directly to the front desk, the article is displayed normally. Click Edit to enter editing status. The rest operations are exactly the same as the last course. Click Delete to delete the article. Of course, a prompt box will pop up. Please confirm.
Click the page to enter the page management section. The management of the page is basically the same as that of the article. The difference is that the page has no classification information, but it can be sorted according to the hierarchical relationship. You can also add new pages directly here.
Click upload to enter the upload file management section. Here you can browse all the files you upload under the web by writing the page. Click the corresponding file to edit or delete it.
Click classification to enter the classification information management section. Here we can see that each category has its ID, name, description, number of articles, number of links, as well as editing and deleting operations.
After WordPress 2.1, the function of link classification has been added to integrate with article categories.
At the bottom, we can add classification information. A classification can contain the following information: classification name, classification abbreviation, superior classification, classification description, etc. The category name will be displayed on your site. Classification abbreviation is the same as the article name abbreviation mentioned above, which mainly appears in the address column. If it is not filled in, a classification name will be replaced by default. The hierarchical relationship of classification can be established through superior classification. When the user’s mouse moves to the classification name, the description information will be displayed to remind the user of the main content of this classification. If not filled in, the “article about XXX” will be displayed.
Deleting links or categories of articles does not delete articles and links under this category, but classifies articles as unclassified and links as blogroll. These two categories are not allowed to be deleted by users themselves.
Click the file page to enter the file management function. The file here refers to the file of the WordPress system, not the file uploaded by the user.
Although you can edit these files directly here, the current version doesn’t even have a navigation bar, and it needs at least 666 file attributes, which is inconvenient to operate and requires more knowledge. Therefore, you are not recommended to modify the files here.
The import function allows users to import articles written in other blog systems into WordPress. WordPress provides different ways to import blog systems such as old blogger, greymatter, textpattern, blogware, move type and Typepad, dotclear, livejournal, WordPress, etc. If your blog system is not one of the above, you can also import it in RSS format.
Of course, in order to retain users, many blog services will not provide you with a way to export articles. If your blog system is not one of the above, it is recommended that you search through the Internet to see if there is a feasible way for users to import.
This is a new feature added after WordPress 2.1, which allows users to export articles. This can also be seen as a sign that WordPress is becoming more and more self-contained, and there is no longer any fear of losing users by providing this feature.
At present, there are few options available for the export function, which can only be exported according to the author or all.
