How to create a blog site with Joomla?

Once you have installed Joomla! you can start building your blog. First, navigate to the website’s login page by entering this URL: www.yourdomainname.com/administrator. Make sure to substitute yourdomainname.com with your own domain name.

There you should enter the login credentials, which you have chosen during the installation process. Then you will enter the Administration area of the Joomla! script.

To start writing your posts in your Joomla! blog, make sure to create the corresponding category. Click on Content > Categories > Add New Category. Once the category is created, go to Content > Articles > Add New Article and add a new article to your website. When ready, click on Save & Close.

After that, make sure to assign the newly created category to your menu. For that purpose, go to Menus > Main menu > Add New Menu Item. Under the Details tab click Select in the Menu Item Type field and a pop-up would appear. Expand the Articles menu and choose Category Blog.

In the Choose a Category field, choose the Category you created in the beginning. Click Save & Close when ready and your Blog is now visible on your website!
