In the WordPress installation, there are 3 sections and quite long magazine written by me personally, including:
The remaining 3 parts are quite short, so I combined them into one in this article.
Those options are as follows:
1. Writing / Writing
In this section, you do not need to do anything in most cases. But I still explain here for you to understand the purpose of each one in case it can be used.
Default Post Category : this is the default folder option. Newposts in WordPress need to choose a folder for it. If you do not select (usually by forgetting) the article will automatically be included in this default folder.
WordPress has created a folder named Uncategorized/Uncategorized to contain such articles (this folder is never deleted). If you want, you can change to another directory. However my advice is don't do it.
Default Post Format : this is the default post format option. Usually Standard/Standard. And you should not change this option either.
Posting via email : As the name implies, this is how you post via email, 3 years of using WordPress I have never used it. I don't know if I have to login to my email to post, why not log in to the admin page. Maybe I don't fully understand its features?
Update Services : update services. When you publish a new article, WordPress automatically announces the update services in the frame, which lets everyone know that you have just published or updated an article. You also don't need to make any adjustments. Leave it as default.
2. Reading / Reading
This section can actually be tailored to fit your needs, unlike the Writing/Writing section.
Your homepage displays . That is, the homepage displays the content you want, you have 2 options:
- Your latest post : This is the homepage option that displays the content of your latest posts (Posts). This is the preferred setting of many websites, especially frequently updated sites or news sites – they want blog visitors to see the latest articles. As of now my site also chooses this way.
- A static page (select below) : This is the homepage option to display a certain page permanently. Usually the format of the page (page) and not the post. This setting can be suitable for business and corporate pages, with the homepage being fixed content showcasing the company.
Blog pages show at most . The maximum number of posts displayed to the outside in case you tick to show the latest content. The default number is 10 ie the 10 most recent posts will be displayed, this is a very good default number that few people want to adjust. Of course if you want you can increase or decrease as you like.
Syndication feeds shows the most recent . That is, the number of articles in the RSS Feed. You just leave it as it is. No adjustment needed.
For each article in a feed, show . It is related to the above. This is also an option.
Search Engine Visibility . Interact with search engines. English paragraph: “Discourage search engines from indexing this site” means “Prevent search engines from indexing this site”. Of course in most cases you don't tick it. Because you want the search engines to update your content. Remember this is the default, no need to adjust anything.
Finally if you have any changes in this part 2 please click Save Changes at the bottom to keep the settings.

The truth is that you don't need to do anything with this part. Just leave it as is. And for the time being, there is no need to rush to avoid headaches.
