    Let’s begin.

    Control Panel Management in WordPress:

    The WordPress control panel (the first screen you see when logging in) is redundant to many. It can also be a little annoying with the information that is not relevant to us at all. Therefore, it is recommended to pull the label “Display Options” (top left) and hide the components you do not wish to view. Besides that, it’s possible to install a site tracking plugin and transform the control panel into something useful and efficient.

    WordPress Post Management:

    The WordPress system is mainly designed for posts (articles). Everything else came in later on. Therefore, it’s important to understand that the posts are the core of the site and one should invest in every post and the thought behind every post, and try to understand what the user will probably expect to see. How can we tell the same story in a better and more user-friendly way? Posts are a great tool for building a hierarchy in the site and directing traffic to our services. For example: click here to learn about managing e-commerce websites.

    We mean it, ask us anything!

      WordPress Media Management:

      All of the media is in an accessible and easy-to-find location. Photos, videos, files – everything is in one place. The main use of the media area is to define names and tags for each and every image so that search engines understand what they mean. Thus, we enjoy many benefits of SEO. Media management also allows us to reduce, resize and adapt media to our needs.

      Page management in WordPress:

      If your website is based on a content building system (builder) and you have no idea how to use it, it’s best to leave that page alone. On the other hand, if you have learned and know how to work with various builders, then a full-control and free design experience awaits you! You can adapt the website to your needs quickly and easily. The pages will be used to display the home page, the contact page and all the different services pages.

      Managing WordPress contact forms:

      Do not touch this. There is no reason to touch the contact forms as these forms are built in HTML. If you want to add unique fields or attributes, ask for help from someone who understands coding. Alternatively, if you know how to code, then you can do whatever you like, just don’t forget to update the CSS to match the design of the site.

      WordPress Design Management:

      The most important part of the site. Here we can manage the design components and that includes, among other things, managing the template of the site, managing the various menus of the site and managing the content areas on the side and bottom of the site. Here it’s possible to change the visibility of the entire site easily and quickly but only when we have the appropriate knowledge. Tip: use the “Display Options” label to edit the menus.

      WordPress plugin management:

      Want to expand the website? Improve it? Add features to it? It can all happen right here! Installation of a plugin can be simple but also ruin the entire site in case there is a conflict between plugins or there is no compatibility with the Hebrew language. Therefore, it is advisable to back up the site before installing / editing plugins and also seek the help of a professional for this purpose.

      WordPress user management:

      Does your website serve as a community, too? Do users subscribe to the website? Well, the WordPress system allows you to control the access of the various users as well as reset their passwords and edit their features. User management is not significant on Corporate websites but can be very significant on community websites.

      Tool management on the WordPress site:

      “Tools” in WordPress is a remote and not very useful part of it. The main use of the tools is importing and exporting the site content. For over a decade, our only use in importing and exporting has been to install a new template or switch between site systems (migration). Therefore, there is not much to look for here…

      Managing WordPress settings:

      WordPress settings include a wide variety of general but highly important settings! Dramatic changes to the site can be made in this area with a few small clicks. So, if you do not understand what the options mean in the settings area of ​​WordPress, do not touch them!!! This is a sacred and highly important part of WordPress.
