Step 06 - WordPress User Settings

  1. Login to your WordPress site and go to Dashboard → Users → Profile.
  2. On this page select an Admin Color Scheme you like. I often choose Modern for my sites in general and Sunrise for a Bootstrap site.
  3. Next, check the Toolbar box so that the toolbar shows when viewing the site.
  4. While you are still in the admin profile, make sure that the admin user has a First Name,  Last Name and a Nickname.   For example I would set my first name to Elizabeth, my last name to Jamieson and my nickname to Liz. Please do similarly.
  5. Change the Display name publicly as value to your full name.  For example I set mine to be Elizabeth Jamieson.

More Information

If you are creating a Bootstrap site, setting the admin panel color scheme to Sunrise can help prevent mistakes. You may be setting up to build a new version of an existing site, and may at some point get the development site and the bootstrap site confused.   By making the Bootstrap site bright red this mistake is less likely.
