Managing and Editing Pages in WordPress

Managing and editing Pages in WordPress is much the same as managing and editing Posts.  All of this can be done via the ultra-user-friendly Dashboard.  When you are ready to begin, follow the steps below to either manage or edit your Pages in WordPress.

Managing Pages in WordPress

On the left hand side of your Dashboard, you will see all of the tabs that you can select from to do your work within WordPress.  Down towards the bottom of the left hand side of your Dashboard, you will find the Pages tab.  When you click on Pages, the Pages screen will open, detailing all of your current pages.  If you have done nothing with your Pages tab so far, then most likely this will only show an About page or no pages at all.

To create a new page, up at the top of the Pages screen where it says Pages, you will see just to the right of that a button that says Add New.  You can click on this to add a new page.  Follow the same procedure as you would when writing a new Post, and then click on the Publish button in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

Now, to manage your current pages, simply hover over the name of the page you need to work on, and a list of choices will appear, such as Edit or Trash.  Choose what you need to do, such as Edit, then complete your work, and click Publish or Update in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

Editing Pages in WordPress

Editing Pages is much the same as when you edit a Post from within WordPress.  When you are ready to edit a page, go to the left hand side of your Dashboard and click on Pages.  Your Pages screen will open.  From here, you will see all of the Pages you currently have on your WordPress site.  If you need to edit one or all of your Pages, simply hover over the page which needs to be updated or edited, and click Edit.

A screen will open up that looks very much like a new Post screen.  Simply write up your Page the same way you would write up a new Post, or edit an existing Post, then click on either Update or Publish in the upper right hand corner.

You now have the tools to update, manage, edit, and publish your new Pages in WordPress.
