Do you need to have a fast access to one of your website’s editing blocks, such as Posts, Comments, or Customizer? You can begin editing them right from the Dashboard tab.
From this tutorial you’ll learn about managing Dashboard.
Dashboard is the first tab, that opens automatically when you enter Administration panel (it can also be called Dashboard), and here you can get all the information about recently made changes and activities. Here you can view the statistics, view the number of posts, comments and pages of your website, create a quick draft, and have access to Customizer.
Here you can view the most needed options and have an express access to each one of them.
