How to Create Static WordPress Pages

Overview: Posts vs. Pages

Most sites make use of posts, which are, by default, displayed in reverse chronological order on your site. When a visitor reaches your site, they will see your latest content first.

Some content may be better suited for a static page, whether it's because you don't want the content to get "buried" in the ever-changing display of posts, or because the content is of general use and interest, such as a page describing the site's creator.

Creating Pages

You can create a page by logging in to the WordPress Admin Panel and clicking on "Pages" then "Add New".

The capabilities for adding, publishing, and editing pages are the same as those for posts. Review our User Roles and Capabilities article for more information.

Examples of Common Pages

There are a few common examples of when to use pages for content:

  • About
  • Contact
  • Copyright or Legal Notice
  • FAQ
  • Static Landing Page
