Let’s publish a post in Shifter!
1 From the top of the dashboard, go to “Posts” and click “Add New”.
2 Create a post and click “Publish”.
At this point, the site will not be published yet. Let’s convert the site to HTML in the next step.
3 Go back to the Shifter page and click “Generate”.
Wait a few minutes and your site will be converted to HTML and ready to publish.
Click on the publish URL to check out your site.
If you want to use the WordPress admin panel again, click “Start WordPress” to start WordPress and log in.
In this way, WordPress only starts up when you edit your site, and automatically stops when it is no longer needed, so that malicious third parties cannot gain unauthorized access.
If there are any updates to WordPress, they will be applied automatically at startup.
These are the steps to create a free trial and publish your site.
