    I've just started trying to use wordpress but have fell short on every stop. I think it is downloaded, I've got my username and password, but I don't know how to get started. No dashboard seems to be available. It's like I'm outside looking in, but unable to take part.

    Have you installed WordPress on a server yet?

    I honestly don't think I have. I know it must look silly of me. I'm quite new to all of this. I'm not sure what a server is.

    You have to have a web hosting account and a domain name to run WordPress. I'd suggest that start by reading New_To_WordPress_-_Where_to_Start.

    This post might be of some help: complete-novice-123-reg

    As mentioned by the previous poster you will also need a domain name, which any decent host will be able to provide.

    Hope this helps.
