The feature image in today’s post shows the top menu for Peeking Beneath. Your menu can vary depending on what template you choose for your blog. But this post is about how to make pages, and where to find the location.
Remember where to find the comments section?

On the side main menu for your site, you are going to find the section titled, Manage.
Under the Manage section, you will see Site Pages. You are going to click on that.
Site Pages You Have Already
When you click on Site Pages (not Add) you will see the pages you already have.
It looks very similar to your Blog Posts section.
Published | Drafts | Scheduled | Trashed
If you haven’t made any pages you will probably see preadded About and Contact pages.
For me, I’ve made quite a few pages as you can see.
How To Add/Edit
Once you see what pages you have there are two options available (in regard to making a page).
You could click on the dots to edit one of your pages already or go beside Site Pages and click Add.
Regardless of what you choose you will be brought to a document.
Everything is basically the same as a blog post. You can have headers, hyperlinks, media, etc. The main thing that changes is that pages do not have tags and they do not have categories. Instead, they have Page Attributes.
This is what your Page Settings (not Post Settings) will look like.
We are going to focus on Page Attributes.
When you click on Page Attributes you will see these options.
Notice that the pages I already have made all show up in the main menu of my blog. This is because all of my pages are Top Level. They are not a parent page.
You have the choice for your current page to either be Top Level or a Parent Page.
You may have a page that connects to another page, but you don’t want both pages on your main menu. For example, you want your About page to be on the main menu, but not your Contact Page.
If this is the case, you would select your page you want to be the Parent Page. When you do, and after your page is published, go to your menu. Hover over the page you selected and you will see the option to click on the page. If you made your About page, the parent page of Contact. A viewer would have to hover over the About title on the menu for Contact title to appear.
Pages Are Similar To Posts
You can add feature images, media, hyperlinks, use headers, and even schedule pages.
Make sure your Pages contains information needed for readers or readers would find interesting/helpful. Pages should help your readers get around your blog, and have a better understanding of who you are.
Pages are not posts so make sure not to treat them as such.
I hope this post helps give some clarity on menu pages.
If you have any questions please ask, and I will do my best to answer. 🙂
