How to Display a Website Page on Your WordPress Site
A website is an indispensable tool in today’s world. With the growth of the internet, more and more people are turning to their favorite device (or devices) to consume content.
In most cases, a website is made up of one or more webpages. If you have a website that you’d like to display a specific webpage or set of webpages, there are numerous ways to do this. The most popular method is to use a WordPress site, as it is easy to use and powerful enough to make almost any webpage work. In this tutorial, we will discuss how to display a website page on your WordPress site.
Step one: Create the page in question
To display a webpage or set of webpages on your WordPress site, the first step is to create the page in question. The only difference between a homepage and other types of pages is that a homepage is intended to be the first page users see when they visit your site. As a general rule, the first page of your website—whether it’s a blog post or an article—should be used to introduce your site and its content.
For this reason, it is usually best to start with a homepage. If you’re new to WordPress, the easiest way to create a homepage is to use one of the many free templates available online. These templates can be easily edited to fit your needs.
Step two: Copy the HTML for the page
After you have a basic idea of what your page will look like, you should start copying the HTML for that page. If you’re using WordPress, you can go back to the Dashboard (you’ll find it under the Apps menu in the dashboard) and click on the “HTML” tab. From there, you can click on the “View page source” button to view the source code of the page you’re working on.
In most cases, you will see something like this:
<h1>Web page title</h1>
<p><p>Some content here<p><p><a href="http://www.example.com">Visit our website</a><h1>Link to our social media accounts</h1>
<p><ul><li><a href="http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009285449188">Facebook</a><li><a href="http://www.twitter.com/josephmcmillan">Twitter</a><li><a href="https://plus.google.com/112678452991157228417?hl=en">Google Plus</a><li><a href="https://vk.com/josephmcmillan">Vk</a><li><a href="http://www.pinterest.com/josephmcmillan/">Pinterest</a><li><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/company/joseph-mcmillan/">Linkedin</a></ul></p><p><h2>Step three: Edit the page as needed
After you have the HTML for the page, you can start editing it as needed. There are various ways to do this, but in most cases, you will want to use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to format your webpage. In the previous step, you saw a list of various tags and codes used to create a webpage. You'll now learn about what all these tags are and what they mean.
To start with, the "h1" tag is a headline tag that will give the page its title. You'll want to use this tag to give each page a unique title that will help users find the content they're looking for.
The "p" tag is a paragraph tag. When you're using a WordPress site, this tag can be used to create a paragraph on your page. Inside the paragraph, you can use a variety of tags to add extra content (including links to other pages).
The "ul" and "li" tags are used to create lists. When used together, these tags will let you create an unordered (or ordered) list of items. For example, you can use the
- tag to list the social media platforms your site covers, and then you can use the
- tag to describe each social media account on your site (in some cases, you'll want to use the
tag to create a heading for each
The "a" tag is a link tag. When used with a link to another page, the tag will become active and will display a preview of the page linked to (if it's a website, the rest of the website will appear).
To finish up the steps, you can use PHP (the Hypertext Preprocessor) to add additional content to your home page, such as an image gallery or a video player.
In most cases, once your page is complete, you can simply go back to the Dashboard and click on the "Publish" button to publish your page.
If you're using WordPress as a Content Management System (CMS), this will be the last step in the process. If you're publishing a blog post on your site, you can simply go back to the Dashboard and click on the "New Post" button to begin the publishing process.
