Hello and welcome to LifeGuard. In this video, we’ll talk about managing existing posts. To view a list of all of your posts, click “Posts” in the sidebar of your dashboard.

Clicking on a post title will take you to editing that post. When you hover over a row, you also get more options for that item. We look at these in our next video, “The Post 108 – Quick Edits & Bulk Edits”.

There are two ways you can view all of your posts; using the “List View” or the “Excerpt View”. Toggling the Excerpt View on gives us a short bit of text on each post in the list. It’s helpful to use this view to remind you what a post was about at a glance.

You can use the filters to show posts that match a certain criteria. Currently, it’s set to show posts from all dates. I can set this to just a specific month to see only posts that were in that month. I can also use the next drop down to view posts from within only one category. By using a combination of these filters, you could also set it to show posts from just a certain date from within a specific category.
