What “A Short Aside” looked like on dashboard and inline

Stephen Magladry showed us, with lightning speed, what a WordPress “Aside” looks like. On my WordPress Dashboard,  when viewing all published posts, the item is tagged as an Aside. How intuitive. This moment allows me to practice, for the first time, inserting an image, because I grabbed a screen shot of what that aside looked like on my dashboard, and I am going to attempt to insert the dot-tiff file. I used the Upload/Insert button above the Bold and Italics toggles on the editing menu bar.

I will learn the following additional details by trying them out. I wonder what would happen if I changed the “filters” on my dashboard. Right now, it is set to View All Categories. I wonder if this Aside and this comment are visible to all Tuesdays with Deborah participants. In conversation, an “aside” is usually to a subset of all people in a room, but that concept may not apply in WordPress. Maybe an Aside is a “type” of post.

The train of thought has now departed the station of “plain language” and is heading toward jargon, so I will stop now.

Thank you, Stephen. I look forward to taking your WordPress Dashboard seminar sometime, but I have a regular volunteer gig on Tuesday mornings so it will take some calendar juggling.

Turns out this is what the Aside looks like in the “thread” on the Tuesdays with Deborah home page, scrolling through content. I am playing with different materials in the art box of WP here – trying out features. Thanks for playing.

  1. Now I’m gettin’ it. Reading the TwD “home” page thread, the actual “aside” shows up under this, later, post. And it looks like a whisper. Smaller type and all. But…. if you look at the right hand side of the page and “click on” the headline of Stephen’s post, then…. it looks like a post.
