WordPress Writing Setting

Writing Settings are settings for how we write articles. We can set the default WordPress text editor in the Size of the post box form. For example, by default, the text editor uses 20 lines. We can increase or decrease it. We can also set default categories for articles and blogrolls.

Accessing and Changing Settings #

To get started, you’ll need to login to the WordPress website via your chosen web browser, then access the dashboard by clicking on the WordPress logo in the top-left corner.

Now, click “Settings” in the left-hand side menu, then click on the “Writing” tab. Here you’ll find all the settings that allow you to customize WordPress’s behaviour.

General Settings #

Within the Writing Settings page, you’ll find the General section. This has many options for you to adjust, but the most important are:

  • The default post category, which governs posts if no category is specified;
  • The default post format, which governs how content is displayed;
  • The ability to have WordPress correct spelling and formatting mistakes;
  • Whether WordPress should update your site’s search engine when you create a new post.

Writing Settings #

The Writing Settings page also allows you to manage your Writing Permissions. This includes the ability to set custom roles and permissions for each WordPress user. This will come in handy as your WordPress website begins to grow.

You can also choose whether you’d like WordPress to accept post revisions, and how many revisions you’d like to keep on record. This is a good way to ensure that you have a record of all changes that you made to a post while creating and editing it.

The Writing Settings page also gives you the option to set how WordPress handles post and page titles. You can choose whether links should be automatically added to titles upon publishing, as well as how many words should be used to craft post titles.

Additional Writing Settings #

Other settings on the Writing page include:

  • The ability to use emoji in posts;
  • The ability to internal links to posts and pages;
  • Whether to show the Word Count for each post;
  • The ability to share posts on social media upon publishing.

Once you’re done adjusting the settings, click “Save Changes” and you’ll have successfully adjusted your WordPress Writing Settings.
