Writing & Editing

Writing Helper

The instructions from this guide are referring to the WP Admin dashboard. You can get to this dashboard by adding /wp-admin to the end of your site’s url (e.g.: example.wordpress.com/wp-admin)

The Writer Helper is a tool that can help you write or finish your posts. You can find it on the Post Edit screen.

Writing Tools

Request Feedback: Get feedback on a post or collaborate with a friend before you publish. Request Feedback helps you generate special links and send them to friends; the special links will let your friends see a post you choose before it’s published and send you their comments or suggestions for it. If you’ve ever copied a post into an email to show it to a friend before you hit publish, Request Feedback is for you.

The option to request feedback is only available on an unpublished post.

Copy A Post: It takes much work to get a post just right. Why not reuse that effort? Copy A Post lets you duplicate a post, including the title, contents, tags and categories, so you can start a new post without having to re-enter everything, if your want to re-use the same tags, categories and formatting.
