• If you are viewing the site from the front end (and are logged in) you will see ‘Edit page’ in the black bar at the top
  • If you are already in the back end select Pages from the main left hand side menu
  • Here you will find the static pages of your site e.g. About, Contact us etc..
  • Click a page to edit it – a page with a dash before the title means it is a sub page of the one above.
  • Gutenberg is the new editor from WordPress and uses blocks (like printing blocks) to build the content on the page.
  • Here you can have a practice in this short intro to blocks
  • To make the page you are editing a sub-page (known as a child page) of another page (known as a parent page) select the page from the ‘parent page’ drop down menu in the Page Attributes box on the right. For example the following image shows a page that is a sub page of About:

Publishing

  • To view the page on the front end click the ‘Preview’ button at the top right of the screen  – it is best to always have the front end open in a different window when editing:
  • You can set the page to be visible to the public or private. This option is under ‘visibility’ in the Status & Visibility panel:
  • Here you can also schedule when you want the page to be published by clicking the date line next to Publish. If a date in the future is entered then the page will not be viewable by the public until that date. If a date in the past is entered then the sub-pages will order in publication date on the menu page – this is useful for older news items or events.
  • You can also select ‘pending review’ if you have an internal content sign off system in place.
  • When you have edited your text and images remember to click ‘update’ or ‘publish’ near the top right.
