Create About & Contact pages

Pages are what you use to display static content on your website like an About or Contact page.

You can create new pages from the WordPress Dashboard → Pages → Add New.

If you want to edit an existing page, navigate to Pages → All Pages and click on it’s name.

Give your page a title. Then type your content, or paste it into the editor. You can add images by choosing an existing image, or by uploading a new image from your computer.

You can preview how your content will look by clicking the Preview button. When you are ready to publicly publish the page, click the Publish button. Confirm and your page will be live.
