The Dashboard – Revised for Clients of Small World Web Svcs
The “Dashboard” is the first page you come to when y0u first log in. Essentially, it is an overview of all of the activity on your website. Your particular dashboard may have various tools or panels showing, depending on how your website was set up. These panels will be explained more below and in later sections of these tutorials.
You can collapse and re-arrange the panels on any WordPress page by simply selecting the title, or selecting and dragging the panel to a new location.
Additionally, you can select the “Screen Options” tab in the upper right of your screen to completely hide panels that are confusing or irrelevant to you and your needs.
There is also a “Help” tab you can select which provides useful information that is contextual to the section of WordPress that you are in.
On the left of the screen will be a panel of buttons that link to the various sections of your WordPress website. This is called your “WordPress navigation.” The items you see there will be individually explained later on.
