WordPress Tutorial: How to Create a Page

August 16, 2019


Hi and welcome to WordPress.com. This video will show you
how to create a new page on your WordPress.com
website or blog. When logged in to your site, hover over
Sites and navigate down to Pages. Click on Add. A new page will open up. Type in a title, and add the text, links,
and media you want on your page. Click on the gear icon on the top right
to open up the page settings. Under Status, you can change the page
visibility, or password protect it. You can change the status and
the time stamp, which is the date and time of publication. Click on the time to change it. Some themes allow you to add tags
to your page to organize your content. Next, add a Featured Image. Choose whether or not your page
is a Child Page of an existing page, and what order it should appear
in the drop-down menu. Your theme may also provide you
with page templates that can alter the display of your page. Read up on your theme documentation
to find out more about the options available for your particular theme. You can control whether the sharing settings
and likes appear on your page. You can choose your sharing buttons
in the general Sharing settings of your site, under My Sites
and Settings. Under More Options, you can edit
the Slug, the custom url of your page, and add an optional excerpt,
which is a short description of what is on your page. You can set the location your page
was created, and lastly, control commenting and pingbacks
to that page on other sites. If you want to copy a page
you’ve already created, click on Select a page to copy. When you’re ready to see your work
in action, click on the eye icon to preview what your page looks like. Your page saves automatically
every few seconds, so you can create a page and decide to publish it later. To schedule a page to publish later,
click on the calendar icon next to Publish. If you’re ready to make it live,
click Publish. And that’s it! For more tips and tricks,
