To begin using WordPress, first you’ll download the software, install it on a web server, connect it to a database, and then start publishing your content on the web. It may sound complicated, but the entire process takes about 5 minutes. And once installed, it enables you to use a simple, web-based editor to publish content and build your website. There’s even a hosted version at WordPress.com that allows you to create a new WordPress-powered website in just a few seconds.
The primary feature of this release is the new editor that will become the default WordPress experience going forward. A number of people have been seeking more direct feedback from the release leads about the progress of this release, which @matt has facilitated by hosting one-to-one discussions with anyone in the community who wanted to talk with him about it. He has also published an extended FAQ covering many of the questions people have been asking.
Once you have the code you can copy it to Ad Inserter. In this example we’ll create one code block for ads above second paragraph on all posts. Select one empty code block (here we’ll use code block 10), click on the name to change it to something descriptive, paste the code for ad unit into code window below and set Automatic insertion to Before paragraph, Paragraph number to 2 and leave checked only Posts page type.
Thank you for all the info! This site is exactly what I have been looking for to help start my Blog or website. Ultimately, I would like to monetize my site but I’m not sure if I should start with a Blog or Website first. My understanding is all Blogs are websites but not all websites are Blogs. I assume if I follow your set up steps for a Blog, I can start with that and add or link the other when and if necessary? For the most flexibility and opportunity would you start with a Blog or a website or both simultaneously? My ideas involve home design, and decorating.
You can also choose text ad styles, define custom channels and what to display when no ad is available. When you are happy with settings click on Save and get code. Once the ad unit is created it will show in the list of ad units where you’ll be able to edit it or get the code for it. Ad unit changes may take up to two hours to appear in performance reports.

WordPress' plugin architecture allows users to extend the features and functionality of a website or blog. As of March 2017, WordPress has over 55,286 plugins available,[19] each of which offers custom functions and features enabling users to tailor their sites to their specific needs. These customizations range from search engine optimization, to client portals used to display private information to logged in users, to content management systems, to content displaying features, such as the addition of widgets and navigation bars. Not all available plugins are always abreast with the upgrades and as a result they may not function properly or may not function at all. Most plugins are available through WordPress themselves, either via downloading them and installing the files manually via FTP or through the WordPress dashboard. However, many third parties offer plugins through their own websites, many of which are paid packages.
