In WordPress you can create various pages, in which you can structure the content of the site in an organized way. For example, in the blog page you can display the last posts created, in the “contact” page you can display a contact form, a map and contact details, in the “about us” page general information about your organization for which you created the site, etc.
Unlike posts, created pages are not displayed in the chronological order in which they were created.
How do you manage pages?
In order to manage the pages, you will need to be logged in to the WordPress control panel. In the left menu you will have the “pages” section, which includes two sub-files: “all pages” and “create new page”. The first option will take you to the display of all the pages already existing in WordPress and gives you the possibility to delete or edit from them, individually or by applying a “mass action”. The display of all pages in the WordPress control panel, as well as the selection menu is similar to that of posts.
How to create a new page
To create a new page, just select the “create new page” sub-tab from the “pages” option in the main menu of the WordPress main panel. In the open page, you will find a block of fields, which, like posts, must be filled in with the title (the name of the page you want to build) and the content. On the right side you will have a sidebar from which you can select general information about the created page, as follows:
- Status – the ability to choose how the page may or may not be viewed by people other than the author. Thus, here we have three options, to be public (visible to anyone), or private (to be visible only to certain people with an existing account) or to be password protected, ie not to be visited by anyone, regardless of user logged in or not, only after entering a password.
- Publish – the ability to choose a calendar date from which to make the page public.
- Author – selecting the person who creates the page
- Template type – page style selection. It can be WordPress by default, use the theme design or a builder used (for example Elementor).
- Permalink – edit the URL of the page
- Attributes – the ability to select “parent” pages.
