A few weeks ago, I made a tutorial on how to create posts with WordPress, so this week I’m going to show you how to create pages with WordPress. Unlike pages, WordPress posts are static, they are not listed by date, and they do not use categories or tags, so you probably want to display your ‘About Us’ or ‘Contact Us’ content in a page, not a post.
Pages are displayed in the sidebar using the Pages widget, and some WordPress themes will display pages in tabs at the top of a blog. Like posts, there is no limit to the number of pages your WordPress site or blog can have.
Now that we’ve covered the basic differences between a post and a page, I’m going to show you how to create a page with WordPress. Just follow the instructions and screenshots below, and you’ll have your first page made in just a matter of minutes!
First, enter WordPress username and password and click “Log In”
When you login for the first time, you’ll see that WordPress has already created a page for you. If you would like to view, edit, or delete the page, you can either click on the word “Pages” or “Page”.
Click the title of the page “About” to view, edit, or delete this page.
If you want to edit the title and content of the page, just click in the text boxes. If you want to preview how your changes will look to visitors, click “Preview” and a new window will open. If you’re happy with the look of your blog, close the window and save your changes by clicking “Update Page”.
If you would like to delete the page, simply click “Delete”.
If you would like create a new page, just click “Add New” under Pages.
Enter the title and content for your new post in the text boxes. If you aren’t ready to publish your page yet, you can save a copy of it by clicking “Save Draft. Otherwise, you can preview in a new window how the page will look to visitors by clicking “Preview”, then close the window, and click “Publish” to make the page visible to visitors.
And that’s it! You’ve created your first WordPress page–pretty simple, right?
