You’re here because you’re wondering how to create a WordPress page.
When you customize different pages for your site, it helps your brand stand out from the rest. Each page can have its own personal design and layout.
For example: The about page, can have a very different design from your product page.
Below I will show you how to create custom pages.
Before we get started, do you have a design in mind? Knowing what you want to accomplish, can help this process go by a lot smoother.
You have a few options:
Create a WordPress page using the default Block editor
Alright, it’s time to start creating your WordPress pages, and to start, sign in to your WordPress backend.
- Browse down to Pages and however over that open.
- Click on ‘Add New‘.
Add a Page Title
Add Page Content
When you’re creating and editing WordPress page(s), you can easily accomplish this by using The block editor. This feature was introduced with WordPress 5.0.
Note: The Block editor will only work with selected themes. If your chosen theme doesn’t have the option to use The Block Editor, then I recommend using Avada Theme which comes with an extensive page builder.
Let’s get started.
Once you have your page title typed out, you can add your page content by clicking on the highlighted are on the image below. Type what you want to say.
You can customize this page further by selecting the ‘+‘ button that can be found at the top left of the page and directly beside your content box.
Once that ‘+‘ is selected, you can browse through the different options.
Something that you should consider is browsing through ‘Patterns‘. That section has predesigned features to help you easily customize your website.
When you are done editing your website, there are a few options before you publish. Click on the gear icon at the top right of your screen.
Browse through the options:
Who is going to view your website? You have the options of; public, private or password protected.
You can set whether the page posts now or at a later date.
This is the last part of the Url.
For example: www.sajahsdesignstudio.com/[here-is-where-the-last-part-will-go]
You can alter this section, if you don’t want the page title to be apart of the URL. However, it is recommended that the page title be apart of your URL for SEO purposes. Also, you need to change your Permalinks because by default WordPress will make your URL’s into numbers.
If you have more than one user who posts blogs or create pages, than this option will come in handy.
A featured image will enhance the mood or theme of you page/post. Each page or post can have a single featured image.
You can decide if you page will accept comments.
Where it says ‘Parent Page‘, you can connect to another page URL.
In the above example, the Book Now page is now connected to the Packages page.
Publish Your Page
Once you have customized your page, you can publish it live.
Top right corner, click on the blue button ‘Publish‘.
That’s it, you’re all done!
WordPress can seem quite overwhelming but the more you use it, you will find that its not that scary. When you get the chance, also check out update your wordpress website and create clean permalinks.
