Back to Support Content and Media Pages and Posts Pages


A page is an area on your site where you can display content. A page can be about anything at all. Some of the most common pages on a website include Home, About, and Contact pages.

You can add as many pages to your site as you would like, and you can update your pages as many times as you want. After you create a page, you can add it to your site’s navigation menu so your visitors can find it.

This guide explains everything you need to know about pages.

View Your Pages

When you first get started on, we’ll create a few pages for you, such as a Home page, an About page, and a Contact page. To view your site’s pages, click on Pages in your dashboard. On this screen, you will see four tabs:

If you have multiple users on your website, you will also see tabs for pages you have created (the Me tab) and pages created by all users on your site (the Everyone tab).

You can search all of your pages by clicking on the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner.

To add a new page to your site, click on Pages in your Dashboard and then click Add New Page.

If you want to edit an existing page, click on the title of the page you’d like to edit. You’ll be taken to the Editor, where you can add text, images, contact forms, buttons, and other content for your page. Please see this guide to learn how to edit with WordPress.

In addition, selecting the ellipses menu (the three vertical dots) will open up more menu options for each page.

When working on a page, you’ll see the Page settings on the right side of your screen.

If you do not see the sidebar on the right, you may need to click on the Settings icon in the top right corner to bring up the settings. This icon looks like a square with two uneven columns.

Set the Homepage

The homepage is the front page of your site and the first page that visitors see. There are a few ways to choose your homepage, as discussed in the Set the Homepage (Front Page) support guide.

Set the Posts Page

The posts page (also known as the blog page) displays all your blog posts and updates automatically each time you publish a new post. You can set the default posts page or create a custom posts page.

To get the URL of a page that you can share with the public, go to My Sites → Pages to view your list of pages.

Click the three dots next to a page. There, click the Copy Link option and the link will be copied to your device’s clipboard for you to share as you wish.

The three dots icon is labeled with an arrow and the number 1. The Copy Link button is labeled with an arrow and the number 2.

Deleting and Restoring Pages

To delete a page, click on the ellipses menu on the right, then select Trash.

To restore a page that you’ve trashed, view your trash by selecting the Trash tab at the top of the page. Click on the three dots to the right of the page you want to restore and click Restore. This will move the page back to your Published list.

To permanently delete a page, view your Trash tab. Click on the three dots to the right of the page you want to permanently delete and click Delete.

How to Find the Page ID

You can find the Page ID in the Edit Page URL. For example, the page ID for the following example is “58167694.”


Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get rid of the Edit link that’s showing on my page?

It’s not possible to get rid of that Edit button but do not worry! It only shows to you as the site’s owner. Other people visiting your site do not see that button and they do not have the power to edit your site.

How do I add pages to my site’s menu?

Create and publish your pages first using the steps in this guide. Add pages to your menu only after you have published them. Please see our guide on setting up your site’s menus
