Adding Pages

The process of adding pages is quite similar to adding posts:

1. Go to Pages > Add New

2. Enter a title and some content.

3. Select a page template or leave the default(more on this just after).

4. Select a layout for the page. Each page can have a custom sidebar or not.

5. Choose a page subtitle (optional).

6. Write a few words excerpt(it is good for search results and SEO to have an excerpt, no matter what kind of content do you have in your page).

7. Hit “Publish” and you’re all done.

Page Templates

As you might already noticed, there are a few Page Templates available for you to use. Each template will configure your page to look and act in a different way.

1. Default Template

This is the default template and it outputs exactly the content of the page, without any modifications.

2. Archives

This is a page which displays all of your archives(it might be good for SEO to have it and also for users in order to give them a broader perspective over your blog).

3. Blog

This page outputs all the posts that you have in your blog. It uses a classic format with all the posts one below the other. This works best for large blogs with lots of posts.

4. Contact

This one has a map available in it. Note that the content (contact form) still needs to be added separately (via shortcodes), but this page template is the starting point for any contact page. The map is configured in the Map Options and each field is properly detailed, so you shouldn’t have any issues with this.

5. Sitemap

Similar to the archives template, this one displays a sitemap with the pages of your website. It is good for SEO to have such a page and maybe put a link to it in the footer.

6. Slider

This page gives you the ability to use either an image,  some CTA boxes, or an instance of the Revolution Slider as the header. If you’ll use the image, you simply have to set up a custom height and upload an image that will appear at the top. If you use the slider, just paste it’s shortcode (the height will be the one set in the slider). If you’ll use CTA header you’ll have the possibility to add one or two CTA elements into the header. Each one has some text on it, a button which gets you somewhere and an image as a background. Use this to make clear call to actions on pages.
