How to Create a New Page

Some quick differences between posts and pages from WordPress.com

  • Posts are listed in reverse chronological order on the blog home page or on the posts page, depending on how you have set up your website.
  • Posts can be found in the Archives, Categories, Recent Posts, and other widgets. Posts are also displayed in the RSS feed of the blog.
  • Pages are static and are not listed by date.
  • Pages do not use tags or categories. An About page is the classic example.
  • Pages are displayed in the sidebar using the Pages widget, and some themes display pages in tabs at the top of the blog.
  • There is no limit on the number of posts or pages you can have.
  • It’s not possible to “post” to a page. Pages are static entities that only can be edited.

Great examples of pages, would be About Us, Contact Us, Find us, Author profiles:

From the Dashboard

Step 1a – Under the Pages, Click Add New

  3. Publish
  4. Parent – you can make this a parent or a child, to create a child, click the drop down list and select the parent page (optional)
  5. Template – depending on your theme and the page you are creating you may have options for how the page displays, click the drop down to select the option you want (optional)
  6. Order – You can manually order the pages.  WordPress uses alphabetical order, you can use numerical if you want to change that order.
