  2. To edit an uploaded photo, click on the photo, then click “Edit Image.” You can also edit the image details on the right-hand side.

Image Guidelines:

For screen sizes larger than 600px, the images will occupy 33% of the screen, with a maximum width of 600px. The image height will adjust proportionally to maintain the correct aspect ratio.

For screens with a width of 600px and below, such as on mobile devices, the image will be displayed at 100% width.

We strongly recommend that any featured images you create are at least 600px wide. If you upload an image that is narrower than 600px, it will be stretched to fit, potentially leading to a grainy or distorted appearance on some screen sizes.

Admin Profile Settings


Under “Profile,” you can modify your admin account settings on WordPress:

  1. Change your Username and Name as needed.
  2. Update your Password for security.
  3. Customize the color scheme for the WordPress dashboard to your preference.
