Typically, pages in WordPress are used for static content you want your visitors always to have quick access to — a list of links, or an “About Me” page; such pages are generally added to a custom Primary Navigation menu.
To add a new page:
Log in to the site and click the “+New” button in the top menu bar; or Go to your Dashboard, and select the “Add New” link from the Pages menu
In the “Add New Page” window that appears:
- Enter a title for the page in the text input at the top
- Type your content in the larger text editor area. Notice you can switch between a visual editor (a.k.a. RichText) where you have full array of formatting buttons; and a Text editor where you can enter or edit html. (For more info on tools and options, see “Editor Tools”)
- Use the “Add Media” button to insert an image into the page. You can either choose media from your Library, upload a new file from your computer, or enter the URL of an image on the web. (More info.)
- When finished, click the Publish button to save the page and make it available to visitors; use the “Save Draft” button to save for further editing. (See “Publish Options” for more info.)
To edit an existing page:
Clicking the Edit button at the bottom of the page you want to edit.
You can also:
- Go to your Dashboard and click “Pages” in the left sidebar menu.
- On the Pages list, click the title of an item to open it in edit mode.
Notice, when you place your cursor over the title of a page, links appear below the title:
- Edit – Opens the page in edit mode
- Quick Edit – Opens a quick edit panel, where you can change everything about the page except its actual content: you can edit the title, allow/disallow comments, assign password protection, and assign parent pages, templates, and change the page status.
- Trash – Deletes the page
- View – Opens the page
