WordPress allows you to select and/or change many options for your website.
For the sake of brevity and since this course is meant to walk you through the process of building your own WordPress website as quickly and easily as possible, we won’t go over all WordPress settings in this video.
If you have a question about any WordPress settings not mentioned here, use your favorite search engine or YouTube to find open source resources that have already been created through other avenues to find your answer or send us a quick message and we’ll be happy to point you in the right direction!

WordPress Settings Video Summary:
To find your WordPress General Settings, login to your WordPress admin dashboard and navigate to Settings > General
Here, you will be able to make changes to your Site Title, Tagline, Administration Email, Time Zone, and more. Be sure to click the “Save Changes” button if you make any changes to the details here.
Next, we’ll review your WordPress Discussion settings.
To find your WordPress Discussion settings, from your WordPress admin dashboard navigate to Settings > Discussion
Here, you can select whether or not you would like to allow visitors to your website to leave comments on new posts and other related settings. Note that the option to allow comments may be overridden for individual posts.
Some other WordPress settings include Media and Permalink options, which you should review but have already been set up for you during the configuration of your Blossoming Business WordPress Academy website.
