How To Add A Page To Your Website

 When you first get your wesbiste up and running you might be wondering where all your pages are. WordPress usually comes with one sample page, the rest you have to add yourself. However, this is a simple process so don’t worry, just follow the steps below.

Scroll down until you see pages and hover over it. You will then see a window appear that says all pages and add new. Select add new by clicking on it.

You will now be taken to a blank page like this one…

You can then start to add your content. Put the title in the box that says enter title here. Then in the box below you will be able to start typing your text, exactly as I have in this post. You will notice that there are some familiar tools for you to use to fomat your post, add italics, bold, underline change font size and colour. To add photos to your post just click on the tab on the top left of the post that says add media. This will give you the opportunity to download files from your laptop.

Once you have created your new page you will want people to be able to find it. Press publish which is a blue button the the right of the screen. This will now let you add it to a menu.

Next go to the menu bar again on the left and hover over appearance and select menus. This will take you to a page that looks like this…

How to add a pageYou will need to select the page from the first box on the left (you can see the various pages I have created) by clicking on it and then scrolling down and clicking on add to menu.

Your page is now published and available for people to view. You can check it out by going to the top of your dashboard menu and at the top hover over your website name until it says visit site. Click and see the that the page is now showing on your home page. You can alter the order it shows in by moving it up and down in the menu box on the right. The page at the top is the one that shows first. DON’T FORGET TO CLICK SAVE MENU! If you don’t do this then your menu will not be saved and your page will not show on the home page of the website.

You can also add sub directories and pages to your menu by just moving the page slightly to the right of the one above it. This will then show as a sub page. For an example of this scroll over some of the pages on my home page and you will see then that others become visible. This is how to achieve this.

I am here to help so if you get stuck drop me line and I can help you out. Once you have done it once or twice you will be amazed how simple it all is.
