Visibility of Screen Areas
If you do not see one of the following areas while editing a Post, it can be toggled on and off by clicking the Screen Options tab.
The Post Screen is very similar to the Page screen with a few added features:
It is recommended to have no more than 7-10 categories. Readers can browse specific categories to see all posts in the category. To add a new Category, click the “+Add New Category” link in this section. Manage your Categories by going to in the left column menu under Posts -> Categories.
Posts with similar tags are linked together when a user clicks one of the tags. Add new tags to the post by typing the tag into the box and clicking “Add”. Tags have to be enabled on your site. Inform your site Administrator or the COFA Web team if you would like to enable Tags.
If you don’t want to display the entire body of your Post on the Blog or News page you can display the excerpt. Inform your site Administrator or the COFA Web team if you would prefer to use the excerpt. If your Posts are syndicated in an RSS feed the Excerpt will be displayed in lieu of the full Posts.
This area of the screen provides two check boxes to allow comments or allow trackbacks and pingbacks. Trackbacks and pingbacks are a method to notify other websites of updated content on your Blog. The WordPress Codex provides a summary of how trackbacks and pingbacks work. Sites set up by the fine arts Web team are set up not to allow comments by default.
A list of content contributors that you can select to attribute as the post author. This section only shows if you have multiple content contributors to your site.
