Cleaning Up Your New WordPress Install

When you install a new WordPress, you’ll notice that it comes with one sample post and one sample page. These are your first post and first page by default. You can simply delete the two or replace it with some content relating to your site.

 

1. To edit or delete the first post, simply click the Post link, as shown on image above. The firs post has a title “Hello world!“.

2. To edit or delete the first page, simply click the Post link, as shown on image above.

 

3. Note also that your new WordPress installation comes with one category and one comment.

The comment is automatically removed once you delete the first post. However, don’t forget to delete it if you opted to edit the sample post instead.

4. The first category is labeled, “Uncategorized” by default. You can change this to something more pleasing to hear like “General“.
