Pages are the body of a website. This is where your website visitors view content and find information. Learning to edit your pages is perhaps the most important skill for you to master. 

To get started, click “Pages” under “Dashboard.”

Classic Editor vs. Block Editor

Over the past few years, WordPress has transitioned from the Classic Editor system to the new Block Editor. If you haven’t already started using Block Editor, you should. The Block Editor is the default, and the Classic Editor will probably only be available through the end of 2022

Under “Pages,” you’ll see that under the title of each page, there will be an option to edit with Block Editor or edit with Classic Editor. 

WordPress’s Block Editor comes with many new options, possibilities, and flexibility. We’ve already covered this topic in several past blog posts, so there’s no reason to repeat ourselves. Go check out our introduction to WordPress Block Editor.

“Block editor allows striking design layouts previously unattainable with the classic editor… unless you write code. A good website does so much more than throw information at people’s eyeballs. Instead, like a gracious host, it attends to guests’ needs, offering a pleasing experience during each site visit. Block editor is your tool to accomplish that. It may not endow you with limitless webmaster superpowers, but it does equip you to build better with less effort.”
