Writing Pages

In this podcast I’ll tell you everything you need to know about writing pages in WordPress. These are great for static information that does not change over time.Once you grasp this, you’ll be able to build brochure sites quickly and you’ll be able to update pages. This used to take forever with static HTML!

Pages are complex (mind you, so is WordPress) so I’ll try to pack in as much info as possible without overwhelming you. Things I’ll talk about are:

  • How to create a new page
  • How to update an existing page
  • How to insert text and a picture into your page
  • How to get rid of the Comment Box
  • How to use a Page Template (like the no-sidebar template)

Remember that some functionality is down to the actual Theme you’re using. I’m using the Twenty-Ten Default Theme for this demo.
