The power of the publishing panel inside the wordpress content management system is often an overlooked gem of your brand’s or businesses workflow. I this unobtrusive little space you’ll find tools to save your work as a draft, something I encourage you to do often, as well as access the revisions of those saves.
The real publication power comes into play once you hit the scheduling options. Being able to schedule my posts has been a valuable ability over the years because the moments I spend writing aren’t always the best moments to publish that material, let’s say it’s really late at night.
I want that post to go up on my website and get distributed to social networks like facebook and twitter at a time when I know they’re most likely to be seen. I always end up scheduling the post, even if it’s just for the next day.
Just Save As Draft
Use The Publish Button Carefully! If you’ve got social sharing options configured like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or LinkedIn, the post will be broadcast to all your social channels.
It’s best to just save your post as a draft until you’ve got it perfect for publication. [/box]
Clients are enjoying a whole new editing experience with the new WordPress 3.9.2 update titled “Smith”.
The focus of the latest update by the team at WordPress was to bridge the gap between the experience you have editing your article while creating content and the look and feel of the article while on your site. Many content management systems suffer from this downfall, especially the content management systems that don’t utilize what we developers call “in-line editing”. In my personal experience the editors that do give reasonable displays of content are “saftey” creation tools for beginners and lack the real power of a true creational interface. That causes a problem because that power is the exact thing most businesses that are serious about online publishing really need.
It’s good to see the team at Automatic is working toward bridging the gap within a professional publishing environment. One of the many reasons wordpress is king.
This quick video highlights some of the new functionality and features you might want to try to test drive inside your creation tools if you haven’t already.
Going beyond inserting a single image into the articles you publish on your website, you can also insert beautiful photo galleries and arrange those in a variety of ways.
You can even no so far as to display all your images as circles. It only takes a few clicks and you’re not stuck with the results either. As I demonstrate in the video, once you create a gallery you can easily change the format to make your article just perfect.
The official documentation has some great examples and screenshots of the different gallery types! I encourage you to check it out here!

The login link should be:
But here’s a nother tip. After I login and click the “remember me” button. I often just type in the word “dashboard” after my site name.
