Pages are the backbone of your website, and most likely you will set up several of them. There are different page templates to choose from, each serving a purpose to help you build a finished site. You can create any number of pages with content. Homey includes several page templates to choose from, and you will need to choose the page template that suits your needs. All of this is done in the pages section of your WordPress admin.
