Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a Page and a Post?
A Post is a message entry that appears in reverse-chronological order on a site’s homepage. Posts can also be categorized for streamlined referencing. A Page is static and not listed according to date, and does not use tags or categories. A site menu is comprised of pages.
What are the different user roles?
Can I export my WordPress site?
Yes, exporting is used when a user wants to upload their site onto an external hosting site (e.g., WordPress.com).
How to Export:
- Visit the site’s Dashboard.
- Click Tools>Export.
- Click Download Export File.
- From the pop-up window, set program to XML Editor (default) OR select Save File (if you would like to save it instead.)
- Click OK.
Note: If you choose to open the file, a new browser window will open with your blog code. The code can then be loaded into the external hosting site of your choice.
