In WordPress, most of your site maintenance is done by simply managing your pages. Click Pages in the left navigation to get a list of all your site’s pages. Each individual page contains a few core components that provide the basic info WordPress needs:
- Page Title – Appears in several locations:
a). Main headline on your page.
b). Title of your page in WordPress administration.
c). In the HTML title, in this format: Page Title > Site Name > Boston University.
- Permalink – The web address (URL) for a page. You can edit this to create a shorter URL.
- Page Content – The text, images, headings, and other content that makes up the body of information unique to this page.
- Label – The label used for each page in navigation menus. Edit these to create short, intuitive navigation labels.
- Page Placement – Think of the navigational hierarchy of your site as a family tree, and that is how WordPress organizes your site. When you create a new page, assign it a parent and that page will show up within that family of links.
