Creating a WordPress Username – Tutorial

A few people have been having a little trouble figuring out how to get themselves set up to interact on wordpress. Here is a tutorial on how to sign up for a username.


Head over to and click on the orange “sign up now” button on the right hand side.


Fill out all the information on the next page: a username, password, password confirmation, and primary email address. Click the button that says you have read the legal information. Then click “Just a Username, Please” (unless you want to start your own blog too, that’s up to you)


Check the primary email address that you entered during step two. should be sending you an email containing a link that you will need to click in order to activate your account. This is usually sent immediately, but could take a few minutes. As soon as you get the email, click the link inside of it.


Send me an email at hinkle.travis @ telling me which email address of yours you used to sign up during step 2. That is how I will be able to add you as an author on IUPainters. Once I am able to do that, you will automatically see IU Painters on your wordpress ‘Dashboard’ whenever you sign into wordpress.

That’s all there is to it!
