How to add a page in WordPress

Adding pages in WordPress is as easy as 123. In next to no time you’ll have your first page published

To learn the difference between a post and page visit our post describing the differences between posts and pages

Step 1. Hover over Pages and click add new

Step 2. Give the page a name and then enter some content below the title field. Depending on the editor you are using things may look a little different. Visit this page to learn about the different editors available and our recommendations.

On the right sidebar you will be able to select a few different options, such as the page template, parent and order.

  • Parent. This is optional. If this page has a parent page, it appears as a child of another page, select the parent page, otherwise, leave this option as no parent.
  • Template. You will be able to select the template to use for your page. Many themes have different templates to select from, and you can change the way the page looks. Most people will simply select the default option
  • Order. Select the order the page appears. This is optional. Assigning a number will change its order on the page list view and navigation. The lowest value will appear at the top. By default all pages will be set at zero then organised by alphabetical order,

Some themes will allow you to set and display a featured image. This is in addition to images that appear within the page content.

Once you have added the content simply press publish
