A description of the available columns

By default, posts in WordPress have multiple columns.


  1. Column Title / Headline Box

The title column is the column used to fill in the title of the article that will be displayed on your site.

As a note, you must avoid several things in making the title, such as using the same title name as the previous post title, or you can use a comma, quotation mark, or hyphen.

But then WordPress will clean up your title to create a very user-friendly permalink, so when you use punctuation or hyphens, it won’t appear in your URL (address bar).


  1. Column Editing Post (article)

This post-editing column (article) is used to fill in the content of your article, you can use any phrase, word, or character.

You can also add code such as HTML code and others to make your articles livelier and more interesting.


  1. Publish Column

Preview button

This button is used to see the results of writing your content before you publish the article.

Save button as the draft

This button is used to save the content as a draft, the meaning is that you did not finish writing the content and you want to change it at a later time.

Publish button

This button is used to publish content that you have written on your site. but if there is a writing error, you can add or change the article by using the editing facility in WordPress.


  1. Category Column

This category column is used to group the articles or content that you write. You can add more categories to the articles you write without having to create a category first.


  1. Column Tags

The Tags column is the same as categories, which are used to group articles or content that you write.


  1. Featured Image Column

Post Thumbnails or now called Featured Image is an image that is selected as a representative image for Posts, Pages, or Custom Post Types. The appearance of this image is following the theme. This is especially useful for “Magazines” themes where each post has an image.


  1. Excerpt Column

The Excerpt column is the column used to write an excerpt or summary of your article. This excerpt will be displayed on the archive page, category, and search page. However, usually, this summary does not appear because there are differences in each theme you use. You must display it using the standardized author code by WordPress.

If this excerpt field is left blank, WordPress will take the first 55 words of the article content that you write.


  1. Column Discussion / Discussion

Two options in this discussion column must be activated if needed.

Comment Options

If this option is not activated, then no one can send their comments to the posts (articles) that you make.
