Creating WordPress Pages

What are WordPress Pages

  Pages are for content that is not specifically time dependent, or which is not "blog content"
  Pages can be organized into pages and sub-pages
  Pages can use different "Page Templates", including template files, template tags and other PHP code
  More complex Themes may provide a wider range of adjustments or display options for individual pages
  It is possible to make a website using WordPress which only contains pages

Creating a WordPress page is very similar to creating a post. These pages are intended for static content

To get started adding a new page to your WordPress site, find the Pages menu in the WordPress Dashboard Navigation menu
Click "Add New"

The WordPress page editor looks nearly identical to the post editor, except for a few different boxes located on the right side of the screen

Add the title of the page, Note: If you have pretty permalinks set up, the title of your page will also be the URL slug


Next, add some content

The Publish section of the page editor is exactly the same as for writing posts. When you’re ready to publish, you can either publish immediately, save this or a draft, or schedule the page to be published later

The Page Attributes section applies a parent page and template to your new page. For the Parent section, you can arrange your pages into hierarchies. For example, you could create this new page with additional pages under it. There are no limits to how many levels you can nest pages

Some WordPress Themes have custom page templates, so the next Template section allows you to apply a template to your new page

The Order box allows you to order your page numerically. Pages are usually ordered alphabetically, but you can choose your own order by entering a number in this field

Preview the page one last time, then click Publish. You just added a new page to your WordPress Website
