Step 4: Enter Page Title and Content
You will be taken to the WordPress page editor. Here, you can begin by entering a title for your new page in the designated field at the top. Below the title, you can add your page content using the WordPress block editor. You can also use the block editor formatting tools by clicking on the + icon to customise your text, add images, and create a visually appealing layout.
