There are two types of content within WordPress: Posts and Pages.
Pages are separate from blog posts. and are often used to present timeless information. Typical pages within most WordPress blogs include the About and Contact Pages, but you can feel free to as many pages as you like. You can use Pages to organize and manage other content and they are not ordered by their date of publication.
At first glance, you may not be able to tell the difference between Posts and Pages because the display of the content is consistent due to the theme chosen for the site.
[ms-protect-content id=”1409″]Pages can be organized into pages and sub pages. For example, the 8 Week Power Blog Launch on this site is a parent page while the page containing Week 1 content is a child page.
You can create as deep a structure as you’d like when it comes to creating child pages, just remember that the purpose of creating subpages is to aid the visitor in finding information on your site.
Pages can be displayed using a custom menu which can be displayed in various locations depending upon the theme you’ve chosen. Pages can also be displayed in the sidebar using the Pages widget. Some themes display pages in tabs at the top of the blog.[level-premium]
A word of warning – If you have 50 pages and you use the Pages widget in your sidebar, then all 50 pages will be listed. Creating parent/child pages is a great way to make those 50 pages seem more manageable.
Your blog should have at least two pages.
An “about” page – where you introduce yourself and your business
A Contact Us page to ensure you have a way for consumers to contact you.
Your Contact Page should include the following:
- Your mailing address
- Fax and phone numbers
- Email addresses
If you maintain a physical office location – you should also include the following
- A map of your business location
- Driving directions (include parking information)
- Hours/Days you are open
- A picture of the building where your business is located
