In this article, you’ll learn how to create and edit a WordPress Post.
Pages are similar to Posts in that they have a title and body text, but they are different in the way they are built and used.
In this article, you’ll learn how to create and edit a Page.
To create a Page, follow these steps.
Like in Posts where you use Categories and Subcategories to give Posts Hierarchy, you can also have Subpages within your Pages, creating a hierarchy to your Pages.
For example a page structure on a site may look like this.
To choose if a Page is a subpage when editing that Page navigate to the Page Attributes and click the Parent drop-down menu to select the appropriate parent Page to make the current Page a child Page.
When you’ve finished, click Publish or Update.
To change the URL of the page (also referred to as Slug) click the Edit button under the Page title when editing a page.
Once a slug has been changed the old one will stop working so make sure to set up a 301 redirect.
Pages can be set to use a specific custom Page Template we will have created within your Theme. You can change the Page Template while you are editing a page by navigating to the Page Attributes and clicking the Template drop-down menu to select the appropriate Template.
We use a plugin called Advanced Custom Fields (ACF for short) so that you can style the content on your pages to look like our custom designs.
ACF blocks will either be static where you enter the content in the set fields or you can choose the blocks you want to add to the page and drag and drop the order of the content blocks to change the format of your Template.
If you can add or drag and drop content blocks you will be able to do this under the Manage Content section when editing a page.
There are multiple ways to add an ACF Block and choose the Block Type you need.
The Theme or the Page Template you are using will determine which option is available.
To remove an ACF Block, hover over the title of the Block and click the –.
To duplicate a block press the Clone icon.
To edit a Page, follow these steps.
Now that you’ve created a Page why not Create a Post.
