WordPress Dashboard – WordPress Admin Page

WordPress Admin Page – WordPress Dashboard

When you connect into the admin portion of your site, the first screen you’ll see is the WordPress Dashboard (or WordPress Admin Dashboard). The Dashboard gives you a quick rundown of your WordPress site.

The WordPress Dashboard is a collection of gadgets or widgets that provide you a quick snapshot of what’s going on with your WordPress blog. Using some fast options, such as Write a New Blog Post, Write a Quick Draft, View and Reply to Recent Comments, or merely check the count of posts and list of recently published articles, you may see more detail or customize according to your needs.

By putting the following URL into your web browser, you may get to your WordPress dashboard:

The WordPress Dashboard is broken into several sections and may be classified as indicated in the diagram below. Following the picture, each of these sections is described in detail.

Welcome Menu:

This area features a large “Customize Your Site” button that allows you to change the look and feel of your WordPress theme. The “Next Steps” column in the middle column contains some of the most basic yet important links, such as writing a new blog post, creating a new page, and seeing your website’s front end. The “More Actions” column provides buttons to adjust widgets, menus, and comment settings, as well as a link to a basic tutorial provided by WordPress Codex.

At a Glance: This section gives you a quick summary of your blog’s articles, including the total number of comments, the number of published posts and pages, any pending comments, and the overall number of comments. When you click on these links, you’ll be brought to a website where you may adjust your options. It also shows the current WordPress version you’re using, as well as the name of the theme you’re using on the site.

Quick Draft: Quick Draft contains a tiny post editor that allows you to compose and save posts right from your WordPress dashboard. It has two fields: a draft title field and a test section where you may enter some details. It just has one button for saving the information as a draft.

Activity: The Activity widget displays the most recently published content, as well as comments and comment counts. You may also approve, reject, edit, remove, reply, and even designate a remark as spam with it.

WordPress Event & News: The WordPress Event & News widget shows the most recent news and events from the official WordPress site, such as community gatherings, software release documents, updates, notifications, and software news.

The WordPress Screen Options Menu is a flexible and dynamic menu that can be used to show or conceal various widgets and sections on the screen. It displays many choices in various WordPress areas. It also makes use of checkboxes to enable you to edit areas on the admin panel by allowing you to display or conceal screen choices. The screen option is used in the main dashboard area to regulate (show/hide) different sorts of widgets that are shown on the WordPress dashboard page. The following picture depicts the WordPress main dashboard’s default screen options:

Main Menu – Left Sidebar

In the left sidebar of the WordPress Dashboard, there is a default navigation menu. This navigation menu also serves as the WordPress main menu. This menu comprises some of the most helpful links that you will utilize on a regular basis. In our next tutorials, we’ll go through all of those menus in depth. For the time being, we’ll just discover their names and a quick description of who they are.

Yes, the dashboard is the first menu in the WordPress main menu. There are two sub-menus: “Home” and “Updates.” The “Home” button may be used to return to the main WordPress dashboard at any moment from any menu. The “Updates” area will alert you of any new software updates for WordPress Core, Themes, or Plugins that have been published.

Posts: This menu is divided into four categories. The first part, “All Posts,” leads you to a website where you can view all of the articles you’ve published as well as create new ones. The second option, “Add New,” allows you to quickly make a new post. The categories and tags choices allow you to control the categories and tags that you may use to organize your blog articles into various topics.

Media: The media area is where you can keep track of all the media you’ve uploaded. There are two submenus: “Library” and “Add New.” “Library” refers to WordPress’s media library, which stores all of your picture and video submissions. The “Add New” option allows you to easily add new photos or videos to your account.

Pages: Pages are static pages that you may post in WordPress. You may browse, modify, remove, manage, and publish new pages under the “Pages” menu, such as the Homepage, Contact Page, and so on. Pages, unlike posts, cannot be assigned to any category or tag.

Comments: You may moderate, delete, or react to user comments on your blog articles using the Comment Section.

Appearance: You may use this section to install new themes, customize the appearance and feel of your current theme, and add custom widgets to the theme’s widget area, menus, and footers. You may change the background picture, header image, and even the functionality of themes and widgets by editing their source files.

Plugins: You may install new plugins from the plugin directory or submit your own custom plugin using this option. You may also completely control those plugins, including activating, disabling, and uninstalling them, as well as changing plugin-specific parameters. For more information on how to manage WordPress plugins, see our beginner’s guide.

This section is dedicated to WordPress user management. Administrators, moderators, editors, subscribers, and other registered users are included in this category. You may use this page to create, remove, change, or assign suitable profiles or access levels to each user.

Tools: This section covers various tools for importing and exporting WordPress settings, posts, and pages, however it is seldom utilized. If you wish to move to WordPress from another hosted CMS like or, or if you want to restore your site from static WordPress backup files, import tools are helpful. The Export option allows you to save WordPress, posts, pages, and settings as local files.

Settings: This section covers all of the options for altering WordPress’ default behavior. We won’t go through the settings in depth here because we have separate lessons on how to modify the basic WordPress settings.

Collapse Menu: This button allows you to collapse the WordPress Sidebar menu to save space on your screen and create a more compact look.
