Hello @rickgravelin,

Welcome to WordPress Core Trac! Sorry to hear the Add New button is not available for Pages.

I checked on multiple sites running 5.8 and the Add New button is there on each site.

It's difficult to reproduce or investigate without more information.

Here are some troubleshooting instructions for you.

This seems like a support request rather than an issue with WordPress itself. It may be coming from a plugin, theme, installation, etc.

My recommendation is to first try the troubleshooting instructions and if there's still an issue, then try the Support forums: https://wordpress.org/support/forums/. When opening a request, please share more information such as:

  • Is this a new installation of WordPress or did was your site upgraded to 5.8?
  • Does the "Add New" button appear on the Posts and Media Library screens?
  • Does the problem resolve itself when deactivating all plugins and switch to a default theme like Twenty Twenty-One?
  • Share a screenshot

All of this information helps others to investigate and provide you with guidance.

As this seems like a support request, I'll close this ticket. However, if it discovered to be an issue with WordPress itself (not a plugin, theme, etc), please reopen and share more information for continued investigation.
