WordPress Pages All Pages
Accessing the All Pages Screen in WordPress
From the All Pages Screen you can manage the pages you have created on your WordPress Website. Here you can sort by Title, Author and Date.
When you place content on your website you can create a Page or a Post. Both are very similar but there are some differences you may want to look into.
You can have pages that are public or private depending on how you want your content to be found and viewed.
If you have others creating and publishing content it is here that you can view the overall activity and make what ever changes or edits you want to make in order to keep your website content organized.
Try to avoid using redundant Page Titles for obvious reasons.
One of the problems I have found with this screen is the lack of functionality when it comes to organizing your pages. WordPress is some what limited when it comes to keeping your pages in groups so you can imagine if your website had a large number of pages it may become harder and harder to keep track of your pages when it comes to updating them. You can only sort by date and by page title, that’s it.
This is definitely a concern if you plan on having a website with a large number of pages so perhaps WordPress may not be the right choice. Remember WordPress is a Blogging platform and most websites using WordPress typically have a low amount of actual pages. Most of the activity on your WordPress site is done using Post not Pages.
The difference between pages and post is something you will discover as you create your website content so it is best to have a plan or outline so you can place the content in the best way possible so when it comes to building the navigation and menus it will make sense to the people who visit your website.
Now that you have logged in to your WordPress site and reviewed the All Pages Screen what do you do next?
