Your shiny new site is ready to go. Now what?
We have a couple recommendations that will help you get started with your site:
- Enable “pretty” permalinks under:
Settings -> PermalinksTypically “Post name” is a good option but you can choose whichever setting you prefer. The reason for doing this is two-fold. First, your URLs just look nicer and secondly your pages will get cached by our servers which will make your site a lot faster. Whenever a link has a question mark in the path the server does not cache that page. By creating “pretty” permalinks you remove the question mark and now the server will cache your pages.
- Next is to install a plugin to protect against comment spam. I’ve used Anti-spam It’s easy, needs no configuration and it just works. Click here to see more recommendations for Anti-spam here.
