The General settings on your WordPress site are straightforward, but you will want to address them before you start posting your content. In this article I will share with you how to configure WordPress Settings step by step.
How To Configure WordPress Settings
How to locate general settings:
Hover over the “settings link” located on the left sidebar.
Click on “General link”.
Now you are on the general settings page.
Here you will see:
Site Title – This should already have your title in it. If it doesn’t, type the name of your blog in there.
Tagline – The default tagline is “Just another WordPress site”. Change this to what best describes your blog.
WordPress Address URL – This is your domain name. Make sure that it has http:// in front of your domain name. Example – http://www.yourdomain.com.
Site Address URL – You will want this to be the same as the WordPress Address URL.
Email Address – Type in your working email address.
Membership – Leave unchecked.
New User Default Role – This should already be on subscriber.
Timezone – Add your timezone.
Date Format – Choose the date format that you would like. I use the top one.
Time Format – Choose the time format that you would like.
Week Start On – Choose the day your week starts on. I have it set to Monday.
Language – Choose your language.
Click save changes.
Now that you are done with your general setting you will want to start designing your blog. I know that this seems like a lot of work. Once you have everything set up the way that you would like it, you will be able to spend your time creating content and building an audience.
