When creating a new page on WordPress, you may notice that you have a variety of boxes, also known as “modules”. These modules offer customizable options for publishing your page, such as adding a Featured Image or organizing the order of your pages.

The Editor is where you type the content of your page. For more information on using your editor, please see this guide.


The Page Status shows whether a post is published or unpublished.

  • Published – The page has been published on your blog for all to see.
  • Scheduled – When the page’s timestamp is set in the future for automatic published.
  • Draft – An unpublished page. The page will not be visible to readers until the page is published.

You can learn more about changing your Page Visibility, including password protecting a page, here. You can also schedule a page to publish automatically by following this guide.


The Title and URL of a page are related by default. When you initially type the title of your page, the page slug (used in the permalink/URL) is automatically created.

The page slug is the part of the URL between the last two forward slashes. When the default page slug is created, all letters will be converted to lowercase, spaces will be exchanged with dashes, and any special characters will be removed.

You can modify the page slug by clicking the Edit button next to it. When you’re finished editing, click OK. After you are done making your changes don’t forget to click the Update button to update the page and save these changes.

This is especially handy if, for example, your page title is very long, but you would like a URL that people can remember more easily.

If your language uses a non-western character set, long page titles can break page slugs. To fix that, shorten the page slug to a single word.

The Page Attributes module allows you to set page parents and templates, and to change the order of your pages. For more information on changing your Page Attributes, please see this guide.
