The Best and Worst Functions of WordPress

In my opinion, the best function of WordPress is the edit shortcut when you visit your site. This is extremely helpful in the final stages of production because you can view your site, catch a typo or another minor problem, and hit edit. This takes you back to that page or post on that dashboard. It eliminates several steps that you would have to do without this shortcut making editing fast and easy.

The worst function of WordPress is not being able to save a draft of a page. Being a student, I would work on the blog at odd times, sometimes in between classes. Even though a page I was working on was not ready to be viewed by the public, I would have to Publish it just to save my progress. I am a bit of a perfectionist so I found this frustrating to Publish and incomplete version.

    You can absolutely save a draft. Click on “Edit” next to “Status: Published,” and pick “Draft” from the drop-down menu that appears. Then click the blue “Update”.

    When you’re creating a new post or page, “save draft” is always a option. It will be a separate button just to the left of the “Preview Changes” button.
