Pages are very similar to blog posts in the sort of content they accept (text, images, shortcodes etc.), but are meant for more permanent content as opposed to the time-based nature of blog posts.The pages screen provides the facility to manage all the pages in a blog. Via this screen, pages can be edited, deleted, and viewed. Filtering, and searching, also makes it easy to quickly find pages matching certain criteria.Several powerful features allow pages to be edited in bulk allowing fields such as Author, Parent, Template, Comments Allowed, Status, and Pings Allowed, to be changed for a whole batch of pages. In addition, a Quick Edit feature provides an easy method to change a multitude of values, such as Title, Slug, Date, and Author, for a given page.
Table of PagesA table lists all of your pages, by row. The pages are listed with the newest page first.The table of Pages contains the following columns:
- [ ]: This checkbox, when clicked (checked), 'selects' that particular page to be processed by a bulk action.
- Title: This is the page's title displayed as a link. Click the title link to edit this page. Next to the Title, if a page is of a Draft, Pending, or Password Protected nature, bold text will display showing that. Hovering over the Title displays the unique identifier (ID) of a page.
- Author: Displayed in the form of a link, this is the author who wrote the page. Clicking the author link causes all the pages authored by that user to be displayed in the table of pages (thus allowing a bulk action to be applied to all pages for a given author).
- Comment bubble: A comment bubble is the column heading, and each page row has comment bubble with the number of comments for that page. If a page has any comments, then the number comments is displayed in a blue bubble. Clicking on a blue comment bubble causes the comments screen to be displayed to allow moderation of those comments.
- Date: The date column for each page shows the date 'Published' for published pages or the date 'Last Modified' for other pages.
