3Pages are similar to to Posts in that they have a title, body text, and associated metadata, but they are different in that they are not part of the chronological blog stream, kind of like permanent posts. Pages are not categorized or tagged, but can have a hierarchy. You can nest Pages under other Pages by making one the "Parent" of the other, creating a group of Pages.

5Managing Pages is very similar to managing Posts, and the screens can be customized in the same way.
6
7You can also perform the same types of actions, including narrowing the list by using the filters, acting on a Page using the action links that appear when you hover over a row, or using the Bulk Actions menu to edit the metadata for multiple Pages at once.

18Creating a Page is very similar to creating a Post, and the screens can be customized in the same way using drag and drop, the Screen Options tab, and expanding/collapsing boxes as you choose. The Page editor mostly works the same Post editor, but there are some Page-specific features in the Attributes box:
19
20Parent - You can arrange your pages in hierarchies. For example, you could have an “About” page that has “Life Story” and “My Dog” pages under it. There are no limits to how many levels you can nest pages.
21
22Template - Some themes have custom templates you can use for certain pages that might have additional features or custom layouts. If so, you’ll see them in this dropdown menu.
23
24Order - Pages are usually ordered alphabetically, but you can put a number above to change the order pages appear in.
