WordPress first saw the light of day on May 27, 2003. The founders are Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little.
WordPress can be referred to as an online, open source site building tool based on PHP and MySQL programming languages. In more advanced terms it is called a content management system (CMS) grew into the biggest and most popular CMS in the world. Today, WordPress is powering over 75 million websites.
A content management system or CMS for short is an application with the ability to create, modify and publish digital content. In most cases, it also supports multiple users, allowing them to work in collaboration.
For example, in WordPress it is possible to create several administrative users, each one having different privileges. Content management systems also include text and formatting features, the ability to upload videos, photos, audio, maps or even your own code.
Once your website is complete and live, the first thing you would want to do is log in to the administrator dashboard.
The easiest way to log in to your administrator dashboard is by adding /wp-admin at the end of your website’s address like this:
This URL will direct you to the login screen where you will be asked to enter the log-in username and password. Remember, you received these details during design phase. If you have forgotten your password, click on the Lost your password? link.
After logging in, you will see the administrator dashboard. It’s built to give you an overview of your entire website and contains 3 main sections:
The first time you log in to the WordPress admin panel, you will see a welcome module which contains some useful links to help you get started.
Once you are comfortable with the dashboard, press the Dismiss button in order to hide this module.
Each of these windows has little arrows that you can use to quickly hide the box. You can also drag and drop them to different positions.
There are multiple static pages in your site that you can edit, including About Me and Home. These are different from the blog posts pages, where you upload your learning artifacts and reflections. The following instructions will help you with using the Massiveweb editor tool in WordPress to update these pages with your content.
You can edit your pages by first logging into the website dashboard and clicking Visit Site from the upper-left menu on your Dashboard.

In the pop-up window, select the appropriate blog post and click Add Link.
