Add Pages in WordPress

OMG, let’s have some fun now!!  This is where the magic starts to happen!  Can you believe how many steps there are just to build the foundation of an amazing WordPress website?

In this step, we’re going to add WordPress Pages to your new website.  When you think of WordPress, you may automatically think of it being a platform for powering blogs and blog posts.  Well it is that, but it’s also so much more.  A WordPress Post is sequential and is in some way related to time.  Posts are organized in reverse chronological order.  A page is just what it sounds like it is, a page of your website.

Here’s WordPress’s definition of a page:

  • Pages are for content that is less time-dependent than Posts.
  • Pages can be organized into pages and subpages.
  • Pages can use different Page Templates which can include Template Files, Template Tags and other PHP code.
  • Pages may have a more complex array of readily available display adjustments when using sophisticated Themes with extensive customization.

In essence, Pages are for non-blog content. It is possible to remove all or most Posts from a WordPress installation, and thus to create a standard non-blog website.

So, naturally, we will add all of the pages that you will need for your beautiful new blog website. We’re going to create the Home page, the About page, the Contact page, the Gallery page, the Terms and Conditions page and the Privacy Policy page.
