A Step-by-Step Guide: Creating a New Page in WordPress

by Jan 17, 2024Wordpress

  1. Log in to Your WordPress Dashboard:
    • Open your web browser and log in to your WordPress dashboard using your credentials.
  2. Navigate to the Pages Section:
    • On the left-hand menu, click on “Pages.”
  3. Add a New Page:
    • Click on the “Add New” button to create a new page.
  4. Enter Page Title and Content:
    • Provide a title for your page in the title field.
    • Enter the content for your page in the main editing area.
  5. Format Your Content:
    • Use the formatting options to style your text, add media, and format your page content.
  6. Create Categories for Pages (Optional):
    • Unlike posts, WordPress doesn’t have built-in categories for pages. However, you can use “Parent” and “Child” pages to organize your content hierarchically.
    • To create a hierarchy, select a “Parent” page when creating a new page. This makes it a child page of the selected parent.
  7. Page Attributes:
    • On the right-hand side, you’ll find the “Page Attributes” meta box. Here, you can set the parent page, template, and order of your page.
  8. Preview and Publish:
    • Before publishing, you can preview your page by clicking the “Preview” button.
    • Once satisfied, click “Publish” to make your page live.
  9. View Your Published Page:
    • Visit your website to see the newly created page.

Creating categories for pages is a bit different from posts. Instead, you can utilize the parent-child relationship to organize pages in a hierarchical manner. Explore additional settings and features in WordPress as you become more familiar with the platform.
