1/ Adding a new page to your site

1. Open your Dashboard

2. Click the Pages tab on the left-hand side panel

3. Click the blue Create Page button on the right-hand side

a. Content:

  • Title: this should contain the title of your page.

    • Note: Avoid using the same title on more than one page.

  • Permalink: the URL slug and the permalink are automatically generated based on the title you set for your page.

    • Note: the URL slugs tend to be very similar to the title, except when the title contains certain characters like spaces or symbols.

  • Description: this is where you can write the content of your page.

    • Note: use the WYSIWYG editor to compose the description.

📌 Notes: The Title and Description will appear on the page in the main content area in the Customizer.

  • You can add full content or a quick intro about the page in the Description. You won't be able to make the changes to the Title or Description of the page from the Customizer - you will need to go back to Page's settings here in the Dashboard.

  • Alternatively, you can use the 'Text Widget' to create fully customizable text content on your page from the Customizer.

2/ Changing your page URL

⚠️ IMPORTANT: If you change the page URL of a published site, the new URL will be treated as a brand new page by search engines. Any links to the old URLs will stop working and this will affect the SEO rankings for the current page.

1. Open your Dashboard

3. Click the Edit icon on the right-hand side of the relevant page

4. In the Content tab, update the URL slug in the Permalinks

5. Click Update & Continue Editing to save.

📌 TIP: if you want to separate the words in the URL slug, use hyphens (-).

For example, you want to change the page URL from /about-us to /meet-the-team, change the URL slug from about-us to meet-the-team.

2. Click the Pages tab on the left-hand side panel

3. Click the Edit icon on the right-hand side of the relevant page
