What is the Dashboard?

Once you log into your blog/site, you will be brought to the Dashboard. This is the default starting page of the administrative back-end. From here, you can click on several different options that will bring you to various sections of your backend wherein you can post new articles, edit your own posts or comments, update your user profile, and return to the front page of your blog, etc. The Dashboard gives you an overview of your blog activity including recent postings, comment activity, incoming links, a section to write a quick post (titled “QuickPress”), as well as providing several links to recent news from the WordPress community (often containing useful info about updates, features, and more general information about this open source community).
