This is a quick step-by-step walkthrough for added new pages in WordPress.

Pages are used to create static or timeless content on your website, that will not be updated frequently. Examples of pages would be an ‘About’ or ‘Contact’ page. Unlike posts, pages do not display a published date or author and they are not organised into categories.

Creating a new page

Log in to the WordPress admin dashboard

Firstly, you’ll need to log in to the WordPress admin dashboard. To access the login screen, simply go to

At the login screen, enter your username and password into the fields provided, then click the button labelled ‘Login’.

Choose ‘Pages’

After logging in, you will be taken to the WordPress admin dashboard.

Use the navigation bar on the left-hand side of the screen, and choose ‘Pages’.

Add new page

The Page screen lists all the pages on your WordPress website.

To create a new page, click on the blue button labelled ‘Add New’.

Give the page a title

You will then be taken to the new page screen, where you will compose your page.

The first thing to do is give your page a title. The title will be the main heading or headline of your page. To create a title, simply click on the text reading ‘Add title’ and start typing.

dd your page content

You are now ready to create your page content. Using the Gutenberg block editor, you can create pages with images, videos, audio, as well as build custom layouts to suit your needs.
