How to Setup a WordPress Website

  1. Give WordPress its own directory, while leaving your blog in the root directory.
  2. Use permalinks to make your pages more accessible to other websites and search engines.
  3. You can add additional directories to your website for static non-wordpress content (like images), but you must make sure that they do not clash with WordPress’ urls or they will take precedence.
  4. Understand the difference between pages and posts.
  5. Learn about categories and tags.
