Let's do a basic setup of WordPress.
WordPress Log In
Log in to your WordPress.
Welcome to your WordPress site's dashboard! 1) You may change you admin password.
Add New User
Add yourself as a new user, log out and log in with your own username. For security reasons you may disable default admin user. Log out and log in with your new username.
You can adjust Screen Options to choose add or remove Dashboard widgets.
1) Size of the post box: 16 lines
2) There is a debate whether to use one ping service, multiple ping services or none. I would start like under the radar with none. Later on, when my site gets momentum, I could add maybe one or two ping services: http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ or http://ping.feedburner.com/ and http://rpc.blogcatalog.com/.
1) Enable threaded (nested) comments is a nice feature. 2) I don't want to show default graphics.
1) Either /%postname%/ or /%category%/%postname%/. For time relative blog maybe /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/.
