About Lesson

Unlike posts, pages in WordPress are meant for static content. They do not appear in the blog feed and are typically used for providing information about your business or organization.

Adding a New Page

  1. Access the Pages Menu: In your WordPress Dashboard, locate and click on ‘Pages’ in the left-hand menu.

  2. Create a New Page: Click on the ‘Add New’ button at the top of the page.

  3. Enter Page Details:

    • Enter a title for your page in the top text box.
    • Use the main content area to add text, images, and other content. Like posts, pages use the block editor, allowing you to add various types of content through different blocks.

Editing an Existing Page

  1. Find the Page: Go to ‘Pages’ in your Dashboard and click on the page you wish to edit.

  2. Edit the Page:

    • Make changes using the block editor. You can add or remove blocks, change text, and update images.
    • The process is similar to editing a post, providing flexibility and control over your page layout.

Customizing Page Attributes

  • Parent Pages and Templates:
    • In the ‘Page Attributes’ section, you can set a parent page, which is useful for organizing related pages.
    • Some themes offer different templates for pages, which you can select here to change the layout.

Adding Media and Embeds

  • Media: Incorporate images or galleries by adding ‘Image’ or ‘Gallery’ blocks.
  • Embeds: Embed videos, audio, and other media using the appropriate blocks.

Setting Up a Navigation Menu

  • Menu Creation: Under ‘Appearance’ > ‘Menus’, you can create and customize your site’s navigation menus.
  • Adding Pages to Menus: Add your new pages to a menu to make them easily accessible to your visitors.

Preview and Publish

  • Preview Your Page: Always preview your page to see how it will appear live.
  • Publish: If you’re satisfied with the page, click the ‘Publish’ button. You can also schedule the page to be published later.
