Learn how to work with text, links and Images

This is an sample page. It will/can show up in your site navigation. Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. Typically if the page is outside of my website, I open the link in a new page. If inside the site, I don’t choose that setting.

You have the option to put a caption or title if required.

This is an example to show images on a page. While there are many ways to use images, this example shows an image that aligns left and the text wraps around it. There are other ways to show images too. This image is more for decoration. If you need to put a caption for the image or a name of the person you have that option underneath the picture.

As a new WordPress editor, you will from time to time need to add links to documents or change the links of a document. Typically I have links to documents open in a new page.

Another image you may be asked to change is the feature image, or sometimes referred to the header image on a page.
