How do I create and edit website content using WordPress?

Website content displayed on web pages in a WordPress CMS is usually created as Pages or Posts. 

  • Pages are typically created for content that needs to be included in main navigation menus and will not need amending frequently eg Home, About Us, Find Us etc. 
  • Posts are created for content that is updated more frequently, will typically not appear in menus and can usually be categorised eg events, news items. Usually in this case a Page is created for ‘News’ (this will then appear on a menu) and then on this News page the full content or excerpt of all posts whose category has been set to News will be displayed in chronological order.
