Key:

1. Title: Add your post title here.

2. Slug: Edit the slug/permalink here. For example, you would rather have your blog post URL be www.mywebsite.com/my-first-blog-post instead of www.mywebsite.com/test-blog-post, this is where you can make that change.

3. Content: Edit the content of the post here. To change the formatting of text within the body of the page, select text and use the toolbar options:

You can also add a link, video, or image using this toolbar.

4. Excerpt: Edit the post excerpt here. This is the snippet of text that will appear on the blog index page, similar to this:

When you’re done editing the content of your post, click Save as Draft or Create, depending on whether you’d like the post to be published on your blog page or not.
