The steps to create pages in WordPress are as follows.

Step (1) − Click on Pages → Add New as shown in the following screenshot.

Step (2) − The editor page will appear, as shown in the screenshot below. Visual and Text are the two tabs on the editor page. You can type in either of these boxes. We’ll look at how to put text into a Visual format.
