Step 1: Log in to Your WordPress Dashboard
To begin, log in to your WordPress website by visiting the admin login page (typically www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin) and entering your login credentials.
Step 2: Access the Pages Section
Once you’re logged in, you’ll be directed to the WordPress dashboard. On the left-hand side, navigate to “Pages” and click on “Add New.” This will take you to the page editor screen.
Step 3: Enter the Page Title
In the page editor screen, start by entering the title of your page in the designated field at the top. This should be a concise and descriptive title that accurately represents the content of your page.
Step 4: Write the Content of Your Page
Below the page title, you’ll find the page editor area. This is where you can write and format the content of your page. You can use the provided text editor to format the text, add headings, create lists, insert links, and more.
Write your page content using the editor. You can switch between the Visual and Text tabs to toggle between the visual editor and the raw HTML/text editor, respectively.
Step 5: Format and Style Your Content
WordPress provides various formatting options to style your content. You can use the toolbar above the editor to format text, align paragraphs, apply heading styles, create bulleted or numbered lists, add media (images, videos), and more.
Additionally, you can use the toolbar buttons to add media, insert links, create quotes, add code snippets, and perform other formatting actions.
Step 6: Set a Featured Image (Optional)
In the page editor screen, you can set a featured image for your page. This is the main image that represents your page and may be displayed in page listings or alongside the page content.
To set a featured image, locate the “Featured Image” meta box on the right-hand side. Click on the “Set featured image” link, and then either select an existing image from your media library or upload a new one.
Step 7: Publish Your Page
Once you have finished writing and formatting your page, you can publish it by clicking the “Publish” button. Your page will now be live on your website and accessible to your visitors.
Step 8: Customize Page Attributes (Optional)
On the right-hand side of the page editor screen, you’ll find the “Page Attributes” meta box. This section allows you to customize the parent page, template, and order of your page.
Parent Page: If you want to create a hierarchical structure for your pages, you can select a parent page from the drop-down menu. This will make the current page a child page or sub-page of the selected parent.
Template: Depending on your WordPress theme, you may have different page templates available. Selecting a specific template can change the layout or design of your page.
Order: If you want to manually control the order in which pages are displayed in a menu or page listing, you can enter a numeric value to specify the order of the page.
Step 9: View Your Page on the Website
Once you have published your page, you can visit your website’s front-end to see the page in action. The page should now be accessible and visible to your visitors.
