Adding Pages

June 18, 2009

Note: adding a new Page will cause a new tab to be added to the top navigation, as well as on the right sidebar.

Log onto WordPress

  1. Go to wordpress.com
  2. On the left side of screen, enter username (greenleycommentary) and password.
  3. Click Login.
  4. Select your blog by clicking the greenleycommentary link

You will be brought to the Dashboard screen for your site. This is where you will find all the functions and options for updating your site.

Create a new Page using text from a Word document

(this procedure assumes you have already Copied the text from the Word document [with the Copy command, CTRL+C])

  1. From the Dashboard, on the left of page
    1. Click Pages
    2. From the expanded menu, click Add New

From the Add New Page screen

  1. Fill in Page title
  2. Ensure that the Visual tab is selected
  3. Click the Paste as Plain Text button
  4. A Paste as Plain Text box will pop up. In the box paste the text from Word document with the Paste command, CTRL+V. Click Insert.
  5. You will be returned to the Add New Page screen
  6. Make any formatting changes to the Page text by using the formatting options (clicking the Toggle Full Screen Mode button will make viewing easier)
  7. Click the HTML tab
  8. Copy the following text (highlight and then CTRL+C):

    <p></p><img title=”divider” src=”https://greenleycommentary.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/divider4.gif&#8221; alt=”divider” width=”500″ height=”15″ />
    <span style=”font-size:x-small;”>
    <strong>Please note:</strong> the links directly below (after “from–&gt;”) are external links. Clicking on them means you will leave
    the Greenley Commentary Web site. To search Greenley Commentary using categories, use the Search by Category function in the right sidebar.</span>

  9. Scroll down to the bottom of the Page text
  10. Paste the text at the very end of the Page text (click to place cursor and then CTRL+V)
  11. In the Attributes section, select the Page Parent by choosing from the drop-down menu. (For example, the Genesis Page will have the New Testament Page as its Parent.)
  12. Select the Page Order. This is the order you want it to appear in the navigation listing.
  13. In the Publish section, click Publish to publish your Page
