  • This page is just for simple pages that don’t use the page builder (or divi builder). If you would like to use the builder, press here
  • note that wordpress is updating all the time, so the images may not be 100% similar to the ones below.

There are 2 types of content in your site

  • Pages: These are the important pages that form the backbone of your site – front page, About, classes etc. When you get a new site, it consists of 5 or 6 empty pages that need to be filled in.
  • Posts: These will be used for articles on meditation topics that users will be interested in. Articles¬†can be grouped by category, and the most recent ones are usually displayed on the front page and other prominent areas of the site.

Edit the existing page or post

Seeing as there are some empty pages that need editing with every new meditation site, this is what you probably will be doing first

  • The easiest way is to log in, visit the page, and press the Edit button in the black bar at the top
  • You will then go to the edit page. If it is a simple page, it will have a simple text area with MS word-like buttons where you can add text.
  • If you see a page that is structured a bit like a brick will, it uses the page builder – click here to see how to edit it. You can always disable the page builder if needed

Adding a new post or page

To add posts and pages, there are 2 ways:

  • From the Dashboard: Hover over ‘Posts’ or ‘Pages’ and then click on ‘Add new’
