How to write a ‘post’

Posts are articles, photo galleries etc
Log in to your WordPress Administration Panel (Dashboard).
Click the ‘Posts’ tab.
Click the ‘Add New’ Sub Tab
Enter a title for your article
Select your category (e.g. FDFC Men/FDFC Women/FDFC News)
Set featured image (for the home page)
Write your article
When you are ready, click Publish.

Things to remember when writing a post
Try and keep your titles short and sweet
If you forget to select your category your item will not show up in your individual news feed on the homepage.
Your post will automatically appear on Facebook and Twitter when you’ve hit the publish button.  You can deactivate this for your post in the ‘Publish’ box on the right. Go to Publicize/Settings and untick Facebook & Twitter.

Inserting images into posts

Please see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Inserting_Images_into_Posts_and_Pages
Things to remember when adding images
All photos MUST be resized to 900 x 600 pixels size before being uploaded to your post. 
It is good practice to add titles and captions to every image, please try and do this.

Inserting YouTube videos into posts

Just copy and paste the YouTube URL into your post. The video will be displayed automatically when the post is published.

How to create a page

Pages are permanent/fixed pages that sit within your own section. An example is the ‘About Us’ page.
Please see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages
Things to remember when creating a page
Always remember to select your ‘Parent’ from the drop down menu in the ‘Page attributes’ panel.
 This sounds confusing but it is clear when you see the drop down menu.
Always keep your page title short.
