Writing & Editing

Pages »Page Screen

The Page Screen is where you create new pages or edit existing pages. The default page screen (Pages → Add New) will look similar to the following image:

add_new_page

You will notice in the screenshot that the title of the screen is Add New Page. If you were editing a previous page, the title would be Edit Page, but everything else on the screen is essentially the same.

The screen is broken down into modules, each with their own purpose. The three most important parts of the page screen are the Title of your page, the Editor (where you type your content), and the Publish module.

The Publish module is very important because it’s where you save your pages, publish them, and preview changes. The module will change depending on the status of your page. Here is the default Publish module:

publish_page_new

After publishing a page, the module will look like this:

publish_page_update

Notice how the Save Draft button has been removed and the Publish button has been replaced with Update.

Other documentation pages will go into more detail on each of the modules and different areas. See Related in the table of contents area on this page.

Configuring the Screen

The Screen Options pull down can be found at the top right of the screen. When you click on Screen Options you will see a set of modules that can be set to show or hide. To hide one of the modules from showing on the screen, just check the box next to it.

For more detailed information on screen layout see Screen Options and Modules.
