3You can customize the display of this screen in a number of ways:
4- You can hide/display columns based on your needs and decide how many posts to list per screen using the Screen Options tab.
5-  You can filter the list of posts by post status using the text links in the upper left to show All, Published, Draft, or Trashed posts. The default view is to show all posts.
6- You can view posts in a simple title list or with an excerpt. Choose the view you prefer by clicking on the icons at the top of the list on the right.
7- You can refine the list to show only posts in a specific category or from a specific month by using the dropdown menus above the posts list. Click the Filter button after making your selection. You also can refine the list by clicking on the post author, category or tag in the posts list.
8Hovering over a row in the posts list will display action links that allow you to manage your post. You can perform the following actions:
9- Edit takes you to the editing screen for that post. You can also reach that screen by clicking on the post title.
10- Quick Edit provides inline access to the metadata of your post, allowing you to update post details without leaving this screen.
11- Trash removes your post from this list and places it in the trash, from which you can permanently delete it. 
12- Preview will show you what your draft post will look like if you publish it. View will take you to your live site to view the post. Which link is available depends on your post's status.
13
14You can also edit multiple posts at once. Select the posts you want to edit using the checkboxes, select Edit from the Bulk Actions menu and click Apply. You will be able to change the metadata (categories, author, etc.) for all selected posts at once. To remove a post from the grouping, just click the x next to its name in the Bulk Edit area that appears.

23The title field and the big Post Editing Area are fixed in place, but you can reposition all the other boxes that allow you to add metadata to your post using drag and drop, and can be minimize or expand them by clicking the title bar of the box. You can also hide any of the boxes by using the Screen Options tab, where you can also choose a 1- or 2-column layout for this screen.
24Title - Enter a title for your post. After you enter a title, you'll see the permalink below, which you can edit.
25Post editor - Enter the text for you post. There are two modes of editing: Visual and HTML. Choose the mode by clicking on the appropriate tab. Visual mode gives you a WYSIWYG editor. Click the last icon in the row to get a second row of controls. The HTML mode allows you to enter raw HTML along with your post text. You can insert media files by clicking the icons above the post editor and following the directions.
26Publish - You can set the terms of publishing your post in the Publish box. For Status, Visibility, and Publish (immediately), click on the Edit link to reveal more options. Visibility includes options for password-protecting a post or making it stay at the top of your blog indefinitely (sticky). Publish (immediately) allows you to set a future or past date and time, so you can schedule a post to be published in the future or backdate a post.
27Featured Image - This allows you to associate an image with your post without inserting it. This is usually useful only if your theme makes use of the featured image as a post thumbnail on the home page, a custom header, etc.
28Send Trackbacks - Trackbacks are a way to notify legacy blog systems that you’ve linked to them. Enter the URL(s) you want to send trackbacks. If you link other WordPress sites they’ll be notified automatically using pingbacks, and this field is unnecessary.
29Discussion - You can turn comments and pings on or off, and if there are comments on the post, you can see them here and moderate them.
30You can also create posts with the PressThis [link to wp-admin/tools.php] bookmarklet and by email [link to wp-admin/options-writing.php ].

42You can use categories to define sections of your site and group related posts. The default category is “uncategorized,” until you change it in your writing settings [link to options-writing.php ].
43
44What's the difference between categories and tags? Normally, categories are pre-determined sections, while tags are ad-hoc keywords that may or may not recur. If you think of your site like a book, the categories are like the Table of Contents and the tags are like the terms in the index.
45
46When adding a new category on this screen, you'll fill in the following fields:
47Name - The name is how it appears on your site.
48Slug - The “slug” is the URL-friendly version of the name. It is usually all lowercase and contains only letters, numbers, and hyphens.
49Parent - Categories, unlike tags, can have a hierarchy. You might have a Jazz category, and under that have children categories for Bebop and Big Band. Totally optional. To create a subcategory, just choose another category from the Parent dropdown.
50Description - The description is not prominent by default; however, some themes may display it.
51You can change the display of this screen using the Screen Options tab to set how many items are displayed per screen and to display/hide columns in the table.

61You can assign keywords to your posts using Post Tags. Unlike categories, tags have no hierarchy, meaning there’s no relationship from one tag to another. What's the difference between categories and tags? Normally, tags are ad-hoc keywords that identify important information in your post (names, subjects, etc) that may or may not recur in other posts, while categories are pre-determined sections. If you think of your site like a book, the categories are like the Table of Contents and the tags are like the terms in the index.

63When adding a new category on this screen, you'll fill in the following fields:
64Name - The tag name is what appears on your site.
65Slug - The “slug” is the URL-friendly version of the name. It is usually all lowercase and contains only letters, numbers, and hyphens.
66Description - The description is not prominent by default; however, some themes may display it.
