Creating a WordPress Page

Creating a WordPress page is very similar to creating a post. Just remember that pages are intended for static content.

To get started adding a new page to your WordPress site, find the Pages menu in the WordPress Dashboard Navigation menu. Click Add new

The WordPress page editor looks nearly identical to the post editor, except for a few different boxes located on the right side of the screen.

Add the title of the page, like About. Note: If you have pretty permalinks set up, the title of your page will also be the URL slug.
Next, add some content.
The Publish section of the page editor is exactly the same as for writing posts. When you’re ready to publish, you can either publish immediately, save this or a draft, or schedule the page to be published later.

Click the toggle block inserter, you can click on it and get a list of blocks.

You can scroll down and open up other categories, like Layout, Common, Widgets, and find more blocks.

The Page Attributes section applies a parent page and template to your new page. For the Parent section, you can arrange your pages into hierarchies. For example, you could create this new page with additional pages under it. There are no limits to how many levels you can nest pages.

Some WordPress themes have custom page templates, so the next Template section allows you to apply a template to your new page.
The Order box allows you to order your page numerically. Pages are usually ordered alphabetically, but you can choose your own order by entering a number in this field.
Preview the page one last time, then click Publish. You’ve added a new page to your WordPress site.
