How to Create a Page

Creating a New Page: The Basics

A page is intended for static content on your website, such as an About or Contact page. This is not a tutorial on how to create a blog post. Learn the difference between posts and pages.

Getting Started

To create a new page on your website, head to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Pages > Add New at the top

WordPress Page Settings

Now you should be in the Page editor and your screen should look like the image below.

  1. At the top, give your page a title
  2. Add your content to the main content area here. You can click the gray text to start typing (this will create a paragraph block), or click the black + button to add and search for more blocks, such as image galleries, headings, testimonials, etc
  3. Your page permalink will be automatically created when you add your page title, but you can change the URL here
  4. If you want to add a featured image for a page, you can do so, but I don't find it necessary for pages

Kadence Page Settings

Kadence child themes have page settings as well. If you're on a Genesis child theme, you won't see this option.

Click on the Kadence page settings icon in the top right.

This will open the Kadence page settings. These settings can be different for each page!

Any settings you choose here will override the default page settings in Appearance > Customize > Page Layout

The page editor should automatically save your page as a draft. If not, you can click the Save as Draft button if you're not ready to publish your page just yet.

You can preview your page changes in a new window by clicking Preview.

When you're finished creating your page, hit Publish. Once you hit Publish, the page will be public. You can always set the page back to draft again if you need to make more edits.

Once you've made a few pages, you can add them to a menu!
