If you need to edit text within WordPress posts or pages, this can be done in two main ways. Watch the video tutorial to learn how to master both of them!

How to edit text within WordPress posts or pages

Here is the crux of the information covered in the video.

To edit texts within WordPress posts, click on Posts in your WordPress dashboard. Next, click on the title of the post you want to edit – this will take you to the text editor.

Click within the editor at the point you want to add text and a cursor would appear. You can now type in, or paste your text.

To bold or italicize text, select the text you want to work with and click or in the tool bar.

To align your text, select the text you want to align and use the left, center or right align button in the tool bar.

Note: The process of editing text in pages is the same as in posts.

WordPress Tip

Did you know that you can see exactly how your edited text will appear to visitors to your blog without posting it live? The Preview Changes function lets you get look at how others will see it and allows you to change it more if you wish, before Updating the post so that all of your edits go live.
