This is a very simple process that only takes a few minutes.

Let’s start with the most basic way of editing WordPress pages.


⚡Editing a Page in WordPress:

  3. This will take you to a list of all of your pages.
  4. To edit a page, simply hover over the title of the page and click on the “Edit” button that appears.
  5. This will take you to the WordPress editor (Gutenberg block editor for the newer versions) where you can make changes to your page.
  6. When you are done making changes, simply click on the “Update” button to save your changes.
  7. That’s it! You have now successfully edited a page in WordPress.

How To Edit the Design of WordPress Pages

While the process for editing a page in WordPress is very simple, you may want to edit the design of your pages as well.

To do this, you will need to edit your WordPress theme.

Don’t worry, this is also a very simple process.

First, login to your WordPress dashboard and click on (or hover over) the “Appearance” tab in the menu bar at the left of the screen.

From here, you can click on the “Customize” button to begin editing.

Make any changes you want and click on the “Publish” button when you are done.

Your changes will now be live on your website.

That’s all there is to it! You have now successfully edited the design of a WordPress page.


Creating Complex Designs With WordPress Page Builders

While the WordPress editor is very user-friendly, it may not be suitable for more complex designs.

In these cases, you may want to use a WordPress page builder.

A WordPress page builder is a plugin that allows you to create complex designs without having to code.

There are a number of WordPress page builders available (check all of them here), but we recommend Elementor.

Elementor is a very user-friendly plugin that is also free to use.

The free version of Elementor is available here and directly within your WordPress dashboard (go to Plugins > Add New > Search for Elementor).

Once the plugin is activated, you will see a new “Edit with Elementor” button in your WordPress editor:
