on How to Build a Website , for step by step instructions.
I just wanted to do a couple of thinks to our websites before I got into Premium Themes.
So if you go into your dashboard, remember its www. yoursitename.com/wp-admin.
You need to set some things up,
One ) go to Settings > General.
There is no wrong answer here, and you can’t mess it up, plus you can always go back and change the settings.
Two) is your tagline, so just write a little blurb about your site.
Three) enter your email address.
Four) adjust to your time zone.
Five) the way you want your date formatted.
Six) the way you want the date formatted.
Seven) save changes
Ok, one more for now. Click on the Image for the text.
I have updated the image below. I originally suggested that you have the date in the permalinks. Steve and Ana made the comments below that for better SEO to use ?/%postname%/ in the Custom structure field.
Thanks for the tip !!!
Well, that’s it for my series on How To Build a Website.
I really hope that you found it helpful.
My advice to you is to get your hands a bit dirty and check to see what’s happening under the hood.
Mess around a bit.

My next post will be on Premium Themes, and my personal favorite, The Socrate Theme….. I promise.
I didn’t want to mix up the two posts, but had to show you the tweaks to your dashboard first.
