Uploading images to WordPress

Adding images to your posts not only help to get the point of your content across, but also add to your site’s look and overall completeness!

To upload an image into your post, you can simply drag a picture from your desktop right into your content editor. The image will automatically be uploaded and selected, so that you may adjust its settings.
(Alternatively, you can go to “Upload Files” and use the “Select Files” option to upload images.)

When you are happy with your selection, click “Insert into post”.

How to Add Images from Media Library

If you already have in your media library that you would like to add to your post, simply click “add media” in your editor. WordPress gives you the option to add your own media, but if you click the next tab you will have access to all your previously uploaded content in your media library.

Just select the image you want, adjust the settings how you like, and click “insert into post”. Your image will automatically be added to wherever your cursor was in the post. You can then click preview to see how your post will look, or hit publish to make your post public.

How to add a heading in WordPress

Heading styles not only give your viewers a better visual representation of what the important points of what your post and pages really are, they also help search engines determine the important content on your site, helping improve your visibility.

To create headings, use the styling options drop-down menu in the first row of the toolbar (the default styling is “Paragraph”). Highlight the text you would like to modify, and use the drop-down menu to select a different style. By default, WordPress offers six different heading styles for highlighting points on your content or for separating topics on the same page – Heading 1 is usually the largest and most important, incrementally scaling down for each of following headings.

When your content is formatted as you would like it to appear on your site, remember to save or publish your content!

Browser Cache Quick Tip

If you are a web developer or even a heavy browser user you have probably run into a browser cache issue over time. I know I am constantly dealing with clearing my browser history because my WordPress security plugin logged me out of WP Dashboard. This is a huge pain to go into chrome settings select just cache and only the past hour so that I can keep all my good browser history.

Today I found a solution. I looked around for some browser Cache clearing plugins for Chrome and tested a few hour. I landed on Clear Cache by Benjamin Bojko. This plugin gives me a quick icon next to the address bar that I can simply click and it clears my Cache. The cool think about Benjamin Bojko Clear Cache plugin is that I can configure it to only remove the Browser data that I want. So I have it set to only delete cookies and Cache that are 1 hour old. Having it configured like that gives me a very fast way to clear the data I want cleared from my browser when i am working on something.

I also allow the plugin for use in incognito mode, I am not sure yet if that will provide me with any additional benefits or not.

 

You can find this plugin in the Chrome Store if you want to try it out.

I hope you found this article helpful.
