Hot! WordPress Tutorial #3: Adding Pages

  • Sharebar

For this particular WordPress Tutorial, we’ll be covering adding pages to your website. It’s extremely simple and very similar to adding a post. For some more in-depth information, check out our main WordPress Tutorial post.

We will be using the Pages section of WordPress to add/edit your website’s pages. You will find that it’s not as difficult as you might think! When you click on Pages, you will be taken to this screen:

Adding a New Page

To add a new page, start by clicking Add New on top of the menu. You will then see this screen:

You will want to add your title in the first box. Note that this title will also serve as a link to this page. For example, if I were creating a page for www.mycatisawesome.com and I titled this page ‘Fluffy’, it will be assigned this link: www.mycatisawesome.com/fluffy. Keep that in mind when choosing your title.

Next, you will be adding content. Type in the content you want your page to show including pictures, links, etc. Refer to our main WordPress Tutorial Post for more information or check back to Zincubate for another tutorial for this.

You will find a lot of overlap when it comes to adding/editing blog posts and website pages. That’s part of the beauty of WordPress – it really is that simple.

Adding a Page Under a Parent

This is one feature that differentiates Pages from Posts. With a website page, you are given the option to add a page under a ‘Parent’ page. If a page has NO parent, it will be featured in the main menu. Let’s use www.mycatisawesome.com as an example. I have my ‘Fluffy’ page (which will be my parent page), but I want another page underneath it called ‘About Fluffy.’ To add a page under a parent, locate the Page Attributes Menu on the right hand side.

If you leave your page marked ‘No Parent’, it becomes a parent page. To add a parent page, locate the page name in the dropdown menu.

  4. While I applaud E S-W and wish her every success, it does sound as if she's being a bit disingenuous presenting herself as any old housewife. She's a serious political figure, and is holding a bit stick with which she is poking a hornets' nest. I agree that the problem is the hornets, but there are still a lot of people who'd prefer to live with them if she'd just put down the stick. As someone engaged in political action, she needs to understand where they're coming from.
