Today’s wordpress tutorial – pages

Okay I created this quick tutorial about pages because I had a client asking me questions about WordPress pages. So here goes.

If you want to create a new page in WordPress, this is what you do:

Step 1: Login to your wordpress dashboard.

Step 2: Click on Pages










Step 3: Click on Add New

Add New Page

Add New Page



Step 4: Create Your Content

Step 5: Be sure to click save often and click publish when you’re done.

If you don’t want people to be able to comment on your pages, but still be able to comment on your blog posts, do this:

In your dashboard you’ll see something that says Appearance. Click on that to be able to edit the php code on your blog.

After you click appearance, click on editor to get to the editor.
Then you will need to click on the link that says pages to be able to edit the page theme.
Look for the following code:
<?php comments_template(); ?>
Once you find the code, delete it. Now no one will be able to comment on your pages, but they’ll still be able to comment on your posts.

  1. There is another way to switch off commmenting on pages. Just tick the box that says automatically close comments on pages older than x days. Put 0 in the box – that’s 0 days.
