Design Your Site

WordPress Editor » Use Page Layouts

Page Layouts are pre-designed pages with placeholder content that you can replace with your own text or images. They are made using blocks in the Block editor, so you can edit the existing content or add more blocks to a layout.

View Page Layouts

To view the collection of page layouts you can use on your site, follow these steps:

  1. From your dashboard, click on Pages.
  2. Click on Add new page.
  3. A window will appear for you to browse through the different Page Layout categories.
  4. Once you find a layout that you like, click it once to apply it to your new page.

Page Layout categories include:

  • About Pages
  • Blog Pages
  • Home Pages
  • Gallery Pages
  • Services Pages
  • Contact Pages

You don’t have to use a category for its intended purpose. For example, if you like an About Page’s layout, you can repurpose the content areas with your own content as a Home page, a Services page, or any other type of page.

Edit a Page Layout

Once you’ve selected a Page Layout, you can replace the placeholder content with your own content.

Click on any text to edit it. Click on any Image block and click Replace to swap the image for your own.

Using a Page Layout

You can also add more blocks to your layout anywhere you want. For more information on using the editor, check out our guide.


If you want to quickly erase all the blocks from the page, you can use some handy keyboard shortcuts. Press CTRL + A on Windows or Command-A on Mac. Then, press it again. Finally, press the delete key on your keyboard.
