4: Creating “Child” Pages

“Parent” Pages and Child Pages

You will need to create an entirely new page from time to time.  When you do, it will be a “child” page of a pre-existing “parent” page.  Parent pages have children pages that are attached to it on the left hand navigation menu.  In this example, the arrows point to the children of the encircled parents.
