Write Page SubPanel

This article may be outdated and contain information pertaining to an older version of WordPress. Please take caution when following the procedure, as many things may have changed.

Write → Write Page

Pages are like posts but live outside of the normal blog chronology. This means they will not be displayed with the rest of your posts; they can only be displayed individually. This Write Page SubPanel allows you to create new pages and edit existing ones.

Write Page Options

The options here are the same as those listed for in the Write Post SubPanel with the following additions.

Page Parent
(located in the upper right) This option defaults to 'Main Page (no parent)', but can be set to any other already existing page to make the new page a 'subpage'. Permalinks and page lists reflect this subpage status hierarchically.
Page Template
Any page can be assigned to use a different template than the one used for the rest of your blog.
Page Order
You can specify the order of the pages that the Template Tag called wp_list_pages() displays when the tag is given the argument sort_column=menu_order. You can specify integers from 0 to (almost) any arbitrarily high number.
