Content Management

Adding New Pages

From the WordPress Administrator Interface, hover over the Pages item and select Add New. You now have a fresh page. Complete it with the following things in mind:

  • The name of your page goes in the empty box at the top. This is the name that will be shown to site visitors at the top of your published page. (It is also what will appear by default when this page is in a menu.)

  • Use the Format and Style dropdowns to make your text and links look interesting.

  • Remember to click Publish to make your page available to your site visitors.

  • Remember to set a "Parent" page if you page belongs in a particular section with other Pages.

Once on your page, your experience will depend largely on which content editor you are using. WordPress' default editor as of 2020 is the Block Editor, also known as Gutenberg. In addition, certain themes come with their own editors, such as Elementor. You can review our various articles and documentation on editors here

Bulk Editing Content

WordPress gives you the ability to edit content in bulk by changing any the following elements across multiple pages at once:

  • Categories

  • Tags

  • Author

  • Parent Item

  • Template

  • Comments (allow vs not-allow)

  • Published Status

To do this, follow these steps:

  • When logged into WordPress, navigate to the content you want to edit (e.g. Pages, Posts, News, etc.) and click on the View All.

  • When viewing all content, check the Check All box next to the title heading.

  • In the dropdown above this checkbox titled Bulk Action change that to Edit and click the gray Apply button

  • From here, you’ll have the option to change any of the above variables by changing the dropdown menus or selecting items from the multi-select box. Click the blue Update button to save your changes.
