Creating and Managing Menu Items for your Family History Blog

A Very Basic Tutorial – Part II

Once you created a new page on your family blog (see Part I), it is actually quite simple to fill it with content from your posts. Let’s assume you just posted the first chapter about your grandparents. To copy the post onto your new page, e.g. ‘My Grandparents’, you follow the standard editing commands. Click anywhere on your post and select its entire content by pressing Ctrl + A and then copy it by pressing Ctrl + C. Then to the left of your post click on Pages and then on All Pages at the drop down menu. Then click on the list item that contains your page. Once you see the page on the computer screen, click at the top of the page and press Ctrl + V to paste the entire post content. Make sure to save the page before leaving it.

Now when you post chapter 2 or the next part of chapter 1, go through the same process, but make sure to paste the new content at the bottom of the previous post. That way you will allow your readers to read your family history in perfect chronological order.

In Part III I will introduce you to multiple pages and explain how to structure them to accommodate the various branches of a family tree. Until then happy blogging!

    This is good information. In fact, I have created some pages and menus of my own to accommodate a few of the requirements on my site.

      Indeed, after some time we need to expand our blog by adding new pages. I am glad you found the info useful.
