Here is a wordpress manual in Swedish.

The difference between pages and posts are not so great. It is the use that separates them both for. One post is often linked to a newsletter or a blog. Older posts are usually less important than new. It can be said that the messages you write temporary information while the pages contain timeless information. For example, the contact details are on one side while the current offers may be on a post.
Below are all the comments on your page. You can simply reply, edit and delete comments.
It is the media library, all uploaded images and documents are available. There are two ways to upload a file to the website. One can go through the media library and choose ”Add” or so to upload files directly when you edit a page / post. Between-line text field and text-editor, there are four buttons.
Hold your mouse over them you get a brief description.
In appearance you will find, among other widgets and menus.
At the side of your page content there is one or more ”sidebars”. In these sidebars can add widgets. Widgets are a small boxes where you can put some information. To get to your widgets go to Appearance> Widgets (Appearance> Widgets).
Here you see all the widgets you can add to your website. To the right you will see your sidebars. Just drag a widget to a sidebar to activate them.
In the menus, you can edit the menus. At the top, enter the menu you want to edit (1). You can also add new menus. At the top of the left hand column (2), enter each menu to appear.
