3. Pages Overview

This section describes how to update Pages from the Dashboard. Most of the content on the LibPress website is contained within Pages, which are used to display general content that remains fairly consistent.

Note that Posts are generally used for time-sensitive information, and is displayed in your Blog section as rolling content on a page from most current to older material. These are updated in much the same way as Pages. (Note: Multi-branch systems usually have a post called Hours or Contact that displays the different branch hours that you can edit.)

Best Practices – Accessibility

To be compliant with web standards for accessibility, be sure to include ALT and TITLE descriptions on links and images to help your users.

  • Use Paragraphs: No one likes to read writing that never pauses for a line break. To break your writing up into paragraphs, use double spaces between your paragraphs.
  • Use Headings: If you are writing long posts, break up the sections by using headings, small titles to highlight a change of subject. In the edit window toolbar there is a drop-down menu listing six available Heading styles.
  • Spell Check and Proofread: There are spell check Plugins available, but even those can’t check for everything. Some serious writers will write their posts in a text editor with spell check, check all the spelling and proof it thoroughly before copying and pasting into WordPress.
