Every WordPress website owner knows how important posts and pages are to their success. These two sections get used more than any other on a WordPress website. Here are a few things you can do to improve both areas of your WordPress site.
Changing the Options in the Editor
If you’re new to WordPress, you may not be familiar with the “Screen Options” tab found within both the post and page edit screens. This tab allows you to change the on page options used to edit the post or page. It will give you all types of options to choose from and may vary depending on the plugins you have installed.
Most of the options control what shows up below and to the right of the edit block for the post or page. You can simply check or uncheck the box to display the option or hide it. If it’s an option you don’t use often, you may want to hide it just to clean up the editor a bit.
Using Image Metadata
When you upload an image to the post or page, you can improve the SEO of that page or post by adding an ALT tag. You also have the option to add a description and a title. By adding these items to your images, you will make your website more complete and more search engine friendly.
Use the JetPack Plugin for WordPress
Another great way to enhance your pages and posts is with the JetPack Plugin. This plugin provides many useful tools all in one. It will add a related posts module to each post, help with social sharing, tiled galleries and so much more. It’s one of the most powerful plugins you can add to WordPress for pages and posts.
Add a Comment System
Yes, WordPress has a comment system already with it, but it’s not as good as some of the other choices, such as Disqus.
This comment system provides many benefits and gives you a central place to manage all your comments.
There are many enhancements you can use to make the posts and pages sections in WordPress better. These are just a few of the most popular ways you can improve your WordPress website through these two sections.
