Modifying the Content

Note: if you’re not familiar with WordPress but need to edit the content of your pages or blog posts, we offer a convenient website updating service. Let us know if you’re interested!

I’d like make some edits to the content myself. How do I do that?

If you need to have content changed on the website – edit the text, add new pages, blog posts, images, etc. – and prefer to do that yourself, just let us know and we’ll set you up as Site Administrator.

You will receive an email invitation, and after you confirm it you will be able to login to what’s called the website’s Admin interface. From there, you’ll be able to add/delete/edit pages, blog posts, manage other users, etc.

Note: our system is based on the WordPress content management system, so you’ll need at least some basic knowledge of WordPress to be able to make changes.

How do I login to my site’s Admin interface?

If your website was built before November 2018, go to https://admin.yourwebdepartment.net.

Otherwise, login to your Admin interface by simply adding /admin after your website name. So if for instance your website is mysite.com, go to mysite.com/admin.

You will then see our login page. Enter your Username and Password and you will be taken to your website’s Admin interface.

How do I create a new blog post?
  • From the Admin, go to Posts > Add New.
  • Enter the Title into the appropriate field. (keep it short, no more than 70 characters)
  • Use the editing area to enter the full text of your post. DO NOT USE THE DIVI BUILDER BUTTON FOR BLOG POSTS.
    Note: the post’s Featured Image is selected separately (see below) and should not be added to the text – or it’ll appear twice.
  • By default, the blog’s landing page will display an excerpt/summary of the post by selecting the first few words of the post. You can override that by entering a different e.g. shorter summary. To do so, scroll down and enter it in the Excerpt field.
  • On the right sidebar, either accept the Publish settings e.g. the date, or edit them.
  • If you’re using Categories for your posts, either check it/them or create a new one.
  • Scroll down and select a Featured Image. It will be displayed on the summaries page, and also inserted automatically at the top of the full post. For best results, use an image that’s between 1000 and 1440 pixels wide.
  • When done, click the Publish button on the right sidebar.
How do I edit a post?
  • From the Admin, go to Posts > All.
  • Locate the post you’d like to edit. You can sort the list by Title or Date in ascending or descending order. You can also search.
  • Click the title of the post you’d like to edit. You can also make quick edits by moving the mouse over the title and clicking Quick Edit.
  • Make your changes as desired, and when done click Update on the right sidebar.
How do I delete a post?
  • From the Admin, go to Posts > All.
  • Locate the post you’d like to delete. You can sort the list by Title or Date in ascending or descending order. You can also search.
  • Click the title of the post you’d like to delete. You can also delete it by moving the mouse over the title and clicking Trash.
  • Posts moved to the trash can still be accessed: click on the Trash link above the list. They can simply be left there, restored or deleted permanently.
