Creating a page is very similar to creating a post. Just remember that pages are intended for static content.
Adding a Page
To get started adding a new page to your WordPress site, find the Pages menu in the WordPress Dashboard Navigation menu. Click Add new.
The One CMS page editor looks nearly identical to the post editor. The main differences are what options are available in the rightcolumn of the screen.
In the top box, you’ll enter the title of your new page.
As you are filling out the various fields for your new page, you’ll notice that a permalink field will appear directly under the title. A permalink is often called a “slug” and basically is the address or URL of the page you are creating.
One CMS automatically determines the permalink based on the title you entered. If you don’t like the permalink One CMS creates, you can click the Edit button next to it and change it to something more suitable.
The Page Attributes section allows you to apply a parent page and/ or a custom template to your new page.
Unlike posts, you can nest WordPress pages and create groups that make sense to you. When creating a new page, or editing an existing one, select its parent and the relationship will be set.
By using parent pages, you can organize your website and make it more attractive to both admins and users (and for SEO!)
Use custom templates
Depending on the theme your website uses, any page can have a different template. By choosing another template, you can create an entirely different page design. So, for example, your “About me” page doesn’t have to be the same as the “Advertise” page. (You may have a full-width template or one with a sidebar, etc…)
Just like in posts, you can add Feature Images to your Pages.
To add a featured image in a page, simply click on Set Featured Image link inside the featured image box.
This will open the Media Uploader. You can use that to upload an image from your computer or use an existing image from your media library. Once you select the image, simply click on Set Featured Image button.
The image will appear in the Featured Image box, like this:
Because your pages don’t necessarily show up in recent post widgets or in your blog, they are not really “featured” anywhere. But depending on your template, a page featured image may display at the top of the page content.
Even though Pages are usually permement, there may be a special seasonal event that would want you to remove the page after a certain amount of time. The Post Expirator allows you to schedule when the page should not be available on your website any longer. You tell One CMS when you want the content to expire and we take care of the rest! First, check the Enable Post Expiration checkbox which enables the remainder of the fields.
Enter the Year, Month, Date and Time you want the content to be expired. Alternatively, you can also enter how many days in the future you want the content to expire.
You can also chose how you want the system to expire your content. By default, it will set the content to Draft status, but you can also choose a number of different options as shown below.
Publishing Your Page
The Publish section of the page editor is exactly the same as for writing posts. When you’re ready to publish, you can either publish immediately, save this or a draft, or schedule the page to be published later.
