Creating A Page

In WordPress, you can publish any content on your site as either a post or a page.

When you’re writing a regular blog entry, you write a post. Posts, in a default setup, appear in reverse chronological order on your blog’s archive page.

In contrast, pages aren’t meant for blog post content at all and generally are for non-chronological, hierarchical content which mostly created for the content that isn’t specifically time-dependent.

Pages like About or Contact would be common examples.

Follow the steps below to create a sample static page:

Creating a new static page
  1. Login to the your WordPress Dashboard.

  2. Click the Pages tab.

  3. Click the Add New sub-tab.

  4. Start filling in the blanks: enter your page title in the upper field, and enter your page body content in the main page editing box below it.

  5. In the right menu, click the Page Parent drop-down menu. The drop-down menu contains a list of all the Pages already created for your site.

  6. Optionally, select the appropriate parent page from the drop-down menu to make the current page a child page.

  7. Optionally, upload a featured image for your page.

  8. When you are ready, click Publish.

When all your pages are listed, the child page will be nested under the parent page. The permalinks of your pages will also reflect this page hierarchy.

Organizing Pages

As you can have subcategories within your Categories, you can also have subpages within your Pages, creating a hierarchy of pages.
