How to post articles and photo gallery using WordPress

Here’s a quick guide on how to post articles, reviews and blogs as well as inserting photos and photo galleries.

Step 1 – Posting articles, reviews and blogs


  1. Click on Posts
  2. Click on Add New



  1. Enter the Title of the article, post or review
  2. Enter the text and contents
  3. Select the correct Category



  1. Click on Insert Read More icon to separate the intro text
  2. If your article has more pages … then use the Page break icon


Step 2 – Mandatory: Now we do some SEO …


  1. Copy Focus key words from the title of your article. Example above: “biggest and best”
  2. Enter the correct Tags
  3. Click Edit Snippet



  1. Copy the first paragraph of your article/post into the Meta Description
    Check that both boxes A and B has the keywords as in the Focus Keyword and Tags
  2. When you’re ready you can click Publish 🙂


Step 3 – Mandatory: Inserting SINGLE Photos in your articles

You can insert single images/photos using WordPress’s own media tool. This would be good for news posts or article posts.

If you already have a photo gallery of a review product, and would like to select one of the photos from the gallery to insert as a single photo, please see Step 5 and Step 6.


  • To insert a single photo in your article, click on Add Media icon (circled in RED).



  1. Click Insert Media
  2. Upload Files
  3. Drag and Drop your photos or upload via browser
  4. Insert photos once photos have been uploaded … SEE BELOW



  1. Select Media Library
  2. Click on the single photo you want to insert
  3. Select the size of the photo … I usually select Full Size (so remember to resize your photos to 640×480 – to save bandwidth 😉
  4. Now you can Insert into post


Step 4 – Mandatory: Insert a Featured Image


  1. On the bottom right of the editor, you’ll see Set Featured Image. Select it.
  2. A new Insert Media window will open (like step 3). Select the photo you want to use as the featured image.


Step 5 – Optional: Inserting Photo Gallery into your articles

If you have a photo gallery of a review product already, and would like to select one of the photos from the gallery to insert as a single photo … First, you need to create your gallery, see below.


  • We use NextGen Photo Gallery as shown by the green icon (circled above).



  1. Click on Add Gallery/Images
  2. Click Add Files
  3. Enter a name for your photo gallery. Basically, they are folders. I recommend you use this format … yourname_productname_gallerynumber , for example:
    • nucleus_gigabyte_z170motherboard_gallery1
    • nucleus_gigabyte_z170motherboard_gallery2
    • etc …
    • nucleus_article-name_gallery1
