Create pages on WordPress.com

  1. Go to “Pages” on your blog’s dashboard.
  2. Click on “Add New” to add a new page.
  3. Enter a page title.
  4. Insert your content (you can do this later, if you are not yet ready with the content).

    Visit the WordPress Support Center

  5. If you want your site to be a subpage of an already existing page select a parent page in the “Page Attributes” on the right side of your dashboard.
  6. Define which template your new page should use. You can for example create an archive page, a page with full width, a sitemap or a normal “default” page.

    Visit the WordPress Support Center

  7. Order the hierarchy of your subpages with the numbers in the Order field.
  8. Click on the “Save Draft” button to save the new page.
  9. Click on the “Publish” button if you are ready to publish the new page. Don’t publish the page f you haven’t yet inserted the content.

  1. This is a great site with a lot of great information! Thanks for sharing your knowledge so generously.

    I am wondering if you can provide instructions on how to format pages/posts the way that you have on your website. My blog uses the same WordPress theme (2011) and my content would be best organized in a similar fashion to yours – that is, having main headings in the Menu (example from your site: “Learn”), then several sub-headings under each one (example from your site under “Learn”: “How to build a website”), with different posts on each sub-heading page. I have scoured forums for the answer but everything I have found requires CSS coding and I am really not that advanced.

    Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated… I’m desperate!

  2. Hi, I’m happy to hear that you find my website so helpful.
    The navigation of my website is done with the “custom menu”. Have a look at the wordpress instructions: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    1) Create your posts or pages
    2) Go to appearance -> Menu
    2) Create a custom menu
    3) Define your new custom menu as primary menu
    4) Add the posts / pages
    5) Arrange them by drag and drop in the way you want

    I hope that helps, if not I will post a picture or a short video about how to do it.
    Regards,

    • Thank you! About 10 minutes after I posted my comment, I finally put this together, but it’s really helpful to have a quick link to the custom menus page. Many thanks again!
