Publish Page Overview1:23 with Zac Gordon
While different types of content exist in WordPress, the publish and edit pages for all content look fairly similar. They have have a title, some basic content fields and options for publishing. In this video we will take a look at a number of different setups. It’s not important you know what each field does, but rather that you know where fields for editing your content appear and in general what they look like.
From our admin home page, let's go take a look at what a typical published page looks like for posts and pages.
We'll come under posts, add new,
and we can see here that we have a title field,
a main content area,
options to publish our post,
ways to add categories and tags,
and even set a featured image.
Something else to note is that at the top of the screen,
we have the ability to set screen options,
which means if we're not using certain fields, like categories or tags,
we can remove them.
You also may find that by default, you see a lot more fields than you need.
If you're working with a developer, discuss with them the best fields to have displayed.
You could even request them to go in and show and hide only what you need.
You'll notice that when we go to add a page,
we see something almost identical,
except that we have something called page attributes
where we can determine if there are parent pages or if we want to use a custom template.
