All the pages on the site are located at https://www.endurapaint.com/wp-admin/ under ‘Pages’. Or directly at https://www.endurapaint.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=nestedpages&ids=405419
You can also click ‘new’ at the top and select pages.
- First thing is select parent page on the right, and select appropriate parent page. In this case I’ll select ‘employee portal’. It can be changed later if needed.
- Next select a title. Click ‘save draft’. The URL will now be automatically generated. You can change as best suited.
- Next, scroll down to the “reading exceptions” box. I assume this will be for internal use only, so I set the reading status to ‘blocked’ for Anonymous and Customer. This way only ‘sales’ and admin users will be able to see it.
- Under the Yoast box, go to the setting tab (gear icon), and set “Allow search engines to show this Page in search results?” to no. This will make sure the page does not appear in the sitemap.
- Save Draft again.
If it’s a simple page with simple layout, you can now enter the text into the text box. If you would like more control over formatting and other features like accordions, click ‘use Elementor’. Elementor is a plugin that’s used for more WYSIWYG-like editing. Youtube videos can get you up to speed on how to use it. Note that once you use Elementor to design a page, you will have to use Elementor for future editing. Some of the above steps (permissions, Yoast, etc) are not visible when using the Elementor editor. Elementor is nice in that you can easily create templates for a standardized look.
For now I’ll continue in the Classic WordPress editor.
If desired, click the ‘T’ icon to automatically clear formatting when pasting. Copy/paste the text and format in the editor as you’d like.
The child pages are automatically shown in the side menu at https://www.endurapaint.com/employee-portal/
From the created page you can click ‘copy to a new draft’ and repeat as necessary. Make sure to verify the URL is correct after editing the title. The new draft copies all of the permissions and Yoast settings.
If there will be lots of these documents, based on the details you included in the pages, it might make sense to have a ‘custom’ post type in Wordperss. A new object “CVC check” could be created, fields can be added, and the you can sort/display based on fields. E.g. status, clr, etc. https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-type-ui/#description and https://wpmayor.com/toolset-easy-wordpress-developer/ and https://pods.io/ will give you an idea of what’s possible.
