Like any application, there usually is more than one way to do something. In building my first page that will be the home page you’ll see what I mean.
WordPress has 3 options when you create content. Save Draft, Preview and Publish (or Update) content. You’ll see that plus how to add and position an image in your page.
I also insert an image into the page and give you a very brief look at the Medial Library section.
Note: If you’re following along and trying this out make sure to use the stock theme, TwentySeventeen. You can learn more about themes, how and where to get TwentySeventeen in Module 3 – Themes.
