Organizing Your Pages
Just as you can have subcategories within your Categories, you can also have subpages within your Pages, creating a hierarchy of pages.
For example, a WordPress site for a travel agent may feature an individual Page for each continent and country to which the agency can make travel arrangements. Under the Page titled "Africa" would be subpages for Lesotho, Cameroon, Togo, and Swaziland. Another parent Page "South America" would feature subpages of Brazil, Argentina, and Chile. Your site would list:
- South America
To create a subpage
- Go to Administration > Pages > Add New panel.
- In the right menu, click the "Page Parent" drop-down menu. The drop-down menu contains a list of all the Pages already created for your site.
- Select the appropriate parent Page from the drop-down menu to make the current Page a child Page.
- Add content to the subpage.
- Click Publish when ready.
When your Pages are , the Child Page will be nested under the Parent Page. The of your Pages will also reflect this Page hierarchy.
In the above example, the for the Cameroon Page would be:
Changing the URL of Your Pages
To change the URL part (also referred to as "slug") containing the name of your Page, use the "Edit" (or "Change Permalinks" in older WordPress versions) button under the Page title on the of the particular Page, accessible from tab of WordPress.

WordPress is able to automatically generate a list of Pages on your site within the sidebar or footer, for example, using a called wp_list_pages(). See the page for information on how to customize how WordPress displays the list of Pages on your site.
There are also WordPress Plugins that will help you display a list of Pages within in Posts and in other areas of your WordPress Theme.
