How to build a site for storing articles using Wordpress

Hi there,

My friend, who wants to get into journalism, would like a site to display her articles on topics such as jewellery, fashion, primary schools etc. She would also like to upload some of her articles herself. Would anyone be able to recommend a great resource for how to do this (or know the key stages, such as customising the user administration panel?). The site would ideally have a search facility, and a database storing the articles.

Sounds like you just need a basic installation of WordPress. Is there something you need that WordPress is doing for you?

You can check out some of the basic videos on how to manage a WordPress site in the How to Build a WordPress Blog project: http://teamtreehouse.com/library/websites/how-to-make-a-wordpress-blog

In general you can just copy and paste in existing articles, or upload them if they are in .pdf form.

Would that solve the problem?
