Step 15- Create Essential Posts

Updated : 26-May-2023

Next you will create 6 sample posts.

Upload Post Images

Click on each of the images below and when it displays at full size, right-click the full-sized image and download it to your computer.

After downloading all six images upload them all to the media library in your website. Give each an Alt Text and a Caption of Sample Image A, Sample Image B etc. The images were sourced from the free section of the Unsplash website.

Create A Post

Create a post called Sample Post A. Add two paragraphs of placeholder text to the post using this text generator. Assign the post to the Blog category (which at this point in time is the only category available)

Add Featured Image To Post

Add a featured image to the post. Select the image of an A, and upload to the Sample Post A as the featured image.

Create Remaining Posts

Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each of the remaining 5 posts. You should end up with six posts altogether called Sample Post A, Sample Post B and so on to Sample Post F.

Assign each sample post a suitable featured image. The ones I'm providing here came from the free site Unsplash so there should be no problems with copyright.

Why Do This?

When you use the Seed Site to spawn another site, you will be grateful for some sensible, pre-existing, content complete with featured images. It means you'll be able to design an archive page layout for example without having to set up some blog posts to see if your design is working.
