ADDING CONTENT (TO A WEBSITE/BLOG)
Adding post and pages to your site is easy to do. Creating content is another story. Adding contents to your Website, Blog or Online Store can never be ending depending on your goal and objectives. If you are brand new to creating a website and you would like to add some pages or posts to your site, on top of what’s pre-created from the theme you have purchased, just read on the instructions below on how to make them.
PREMADE BASIC STANDARD PAGES (Prepopulated & Created)
Every website has a few standard pages you should create:
Fortunately, most Premium Themes come with pre-populated, premade-designed pages that you can edit quickly and easily.
- Home Page – Your WordPress theme usually has settings for this page.
- Contact Us Page – Most of the themes has also predesigned Contact Page, ready for you to edit.
- About Us Page – Tell your story and why you’ve started your business.
- Product or Services Pages – For the main services or products that you’re offering, it’s a good idea to create a dedicated page for each.
- Blog Page– If you’re building a blog, make sure all your posts get listed here.
This list will get you started. You can always add more later.
Adding a New 'PAGE'
You’ll start by adding a few pages to your WordPress site. Don’t worry if you don’t have enough content for these pages at the moment. You can always edit and update them later.
LOGIN To your WebSite
Add NEW Page
Head over to Pages » Add New page in WordPress admin area. This will bring you to the page editor screen, which looks like this:
New Editor (Gutenberg)
After that, simply add your page’s content in the text editor field, hit the big shiny Publish button when you’re done, and you’ve just got yourself a brand new page for your WordPress website.
Finally, you need include linked text on each page to allow visitors to navigate back and forth across your WordPress website.
Adding a New 'POST'
You’ll start by adding a few “Posts” to your WordPress site. Don’t worry if you don’t have enough content for these pages at the moment. You can always edit and update them later.
LOGIN To your WebSite
Add NEW Post
Here, you will see the WordPress posts editor. The most important parts of this page are:
Post Title – enter the title of your post in this field. On your theme it will be shown above your content.
Post Content – you can use the WordPress WYSIWYG editor to add the actual content of your post. Note that it has two tabs available in the kebab menu on the right – Visual (use the editor to format your text) and Code (add your HTML code directly).
Old Editor (which is still preferred by a lot of Web Designers)
Gutenber Editor (New Version of WordPress)
When you’ve completed a post, click “Publish” to make it live on the site or save it as a draft for later editing. WordPress also includes tools for scheduling posts to be published at a later date, and any published post can be edited and updated—or deleted completely—whenever necessary.
You’re done with your first post! You can now go to the front page of your site to view your newly created blog post.
Congratulations! You have already created some contents to your Website . . .
Trivia: There’s no limit to the number of posts or pages that can be added to any self-hosted WordPress site, and you can change the appearance and layout of the site at any time by choosing different themes and plugins as the site evolves.

Adding own contents to your website, or online store is a great way to use keywords to increase your ranking, thereby showing your webpage or website in the search engines results. When you’re first creating your website, you want to get a batch of pages live so your site feels real.
Fortunately, when you purchase a WordPress Theme (Premade Website Design Layout), it comes with several pre-populated and pre-designed Pages.
2 Default Content Types
POSTS are the articles you post on a regular basis. These also called blog posts. They are arranged based on the date they’re published.
PAGES are meant to be static “one-off” type content. These pages generally appear in the navigation menu.
- ‘About’ page,
- Contact Us’ page,
- ‘Services’ Page
- ‘Pricing’ Page
