Do you want to create a child page on your site? Pages in WordPress can be standalone or hierarchical, which means a page can have its own sub-pages also known as child pages. In this article, we will show you how to easily create a child page in WordPress to better organize your pages.
What is a Child Page in WordPress?
Pages and posts are two default content types in WordPress. To learn more, see our guide on the difference between posts vs pages in WordPress.
Posts are part of a blog and are displayed in a reverse chronological order (newer entries first). They are normally organized with categories and tags.
Pages are one-off or standalone content that is not part of a blog. For example, ‘About us’ page or ‘Contact us’ page. They can be hierarchical, which means you can organize them with parent and child pages.
Typically, business websites use Pages to build a website structure. This way they can build a website without creating a blog. Those who want to add a blog to their content marketing strategy can still do so by simply creating a separate blog page.
