Pages are static. They are a good way to publish information that doesn’t change much, like an About page. Pages appear in the Pages widget and in tabs/links across the top of some themes. Pages are not associated with a date/time like posts, nor can you tag or categorize a page.

At times, pages are confused with posts. See Post vs. Page for an explanation of the differences.

Create a New Page

There are two ways to create a new page.

You can click Pages  Add New in your dashboard.

Or you can click on the name of your website in the upper left corner of the admin bar and select New Page from the dropdown menu.


See our documentation on the Page Screen for more details.

Edit a Page

If you would like to edit an existing page, click Pages  All Pages on the left menu. Under the page you’d like to edit, click on the Edit link.


See our documentation on the Edit Pages Screen for more details.

Create Sub-Pages / Page Order

The Page Attributes module allows you to set page parents and templates, and to change the order of your pages.

If you have a theme that supports the Custom Menus Feature you can:

  • Change the order of pages
  • Nest pages to create sub-menus
  • Display posts on different pages by creating category pages
  • Add custom links to the navigation menu

Post to Pages

It’s not possible to add posts to pages.
