C. Creating a New Page

NOTE:  You must be logged in to your WordPress site.

  1. On the WordPress Admin Dashboard, click Pages..Add New.
    The Add New Page screen appears:

    Add New Page Screen
    Click the image to see the full-size version.
  2. Click in the box with the text “Enter title here.”  Enter a title for the page.
  3. Click in the box below the Editing toolbar. Enter the content.  You can copy and paste text from Word, but not photos.
  4. On the right side of the screen, locate and click Publish.
  5. Right-click View Page on the horizontal toolbar at the top, and choose Open link in a New Tab.  A new tab appears.  Proof your work.

NOTE:  Remember to add the page to the site’s navigation system so visitors to the site can find it.

You can:

  • Link to this page from another page.
  • Add the page to the horizontal main menu – only site administrators can do this.
  • Set a parent page for the site so it appears as a child page in the right site navigation.  Please email websupport@cals.wisc.edu for more information on how to do this – there are more steps involved.
