In WordPress, pages are arranged in a hierarchical manner, meaning that you can create a page and a subpage. A subpage is also known as a child page. When creating a page on WordPress, by default, the page is usually standalone or a parent page. This means that it is the main page. However, you can create another page under the main page, which is referred to as the child page. So why would you need to have child pages? Sometimes when developing a website, we might get to a situation where we have too many pages.
This can bring in a lot of confusion especially in identifying categories that such pages go under. For example, you might have an About Us page, Our Team page and Our Values page among others. The Team and Values pages can be created as child pages under the About Us page, which would make things easier for organizing your website content and keep it clean. In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to create a child page. Before creating the child page, we will create a parent page.
