How Do I Add a New Page to My Website?

You can add a new page quickly and easily. Content drives all websites, but where do you put your content? Mostly-static content will be placed on pages, which can then be added to your menu or linked to.

Here is how to add a new page:

  1. Once logged in, hover over Pages in the menu on the left-hand side of the Dashboard, and click on Add New.
  2. You should now see a new blank page template.
  3. At the top, enter the title for your new page.
  4. Enter the main content for your page. Adding new blocks for Paragraphs, Headings, Image, Columns, etc.
  5. Text content can be added by simply typing, or copy/paste from another source. If you are copying from a Word Document, PDF, or another website, you may want to use the Paste as text (right-click in a Paragraph block and click “Paste as text”) option to clear any styling associated that may not display nicely on your website.
  6. Once you’ve entered your content for the page, let’s move to the Page/Block Settings Sidebar on the right side of your window.
  7. In the Publish box, you can save your page as a draft, if you’d like to come back to finish it later. Preview will show your new content as the public will see it on the “front end” of your site.
    Note: Some previews may not look exactly as it will show when published, particularly certain page templates
  8. Under Page Attributes, you can select a Parent page. This will help organize your pages in the Dashboard, and may have other front-end implications depending on the design of your theme. Order may determine the order of automatically generated menus in some themes, but may have no visible effect in others.
  9. The options under Template also depends on the design of your theme, but may include options such as Accordion, Tabs, or Contact
  10. Click Publish to save your changes and make your new page public.

Keep in mind, adding a new page to your site generally does not automatically add it to the navigation menu. See [link to menus article] for help adding your new page to a menu.
