how to create a parent page

  1. In the little useless help pop-up for 'Pages' it says

    'Pages are similar 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.'

    Just what I want, except...how do I create the heirarchy and how do I nest pages under a parent?

    Thank you for your assistance!

  2. Hi there,
    There are two approaches you can use. If you want to have only Pages in the menu bar see here:
    Create Sub-Pages / Page Order http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/#create-sub-pages-page-order

    Only some themes provide drop-downs natively from parent pages to sub-pages but all themes support custom menus that make drop-downs possible.

    Changing the Order of Menu Items and Creating Sub-Menus http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#changing-the-order-of-menu-items-and-creating-sub-menus

  3. You can simply create a custom menu to manage your navigation menu. Here you can change the order of the menu items and create sub-menus. You can read more about it in this guide.

  4. best thanks for this!
