Learn how to easily find a WordPress post or page ID and why knowing how to locate your post and page IDs can be useful …

How To Find Your WordPress Page And Post IDsEver wondered how to prevent public access to certain posts or pages in areas of your site like your sitemap?

One of the easiest ways to do this is to filter your pages or posts by ID.

Your WordPress Page ID is a unique identifier that WordPress assigns to every post or page you create on your site.

Knowing the post or page ID is really useful if, for example, you want to exclude pages from showing in your sitemap, or if you want only certain pages to show in the sidebar section of your website.

In this tutorial, you are going to learn how to easily locate the ID of WordPress pages and posts.

How To Locate The ID Of WordPress Posts And Pages: Tutorial

To find your page or post ID, log into your site’s dashboard and either go to the Pages area (if you want page IDs) or the Posts screen (if you need a particular post ID) …

As we state repeatedly throughout this site, WordPress provides an easy-to-use, powerful and flexible way to manage your content online.

The more you understand WordPress, the better you can use it to grow your business online.

As you will soon discover, creating a WordPress post is very easy. In this tutorial, you will actually create a post in WordPress that will help you grow your business.

A Step-By-Step Guide To Creating A WP Post

Let’s start by reviewing some helpful guidelines for adding content to WordPress posts.

Posts – Content Guidelines

Here are some useful guidelines and best practices for posting content:

  • Practice Accessibility: Stay compliant with web standards for accessibility and help your users by including ALT and TITLE descriptions with links and images (e.g. <a title=“Descriptive Title Goes Here” href=”http://yourdomain.com/”>Hyperlinked Text</a>).
  • Use Paragraphs: Make your content more readable by breaking up your writing into paragraphs. Tip: If double spaces are used between your paragraphs, WordPress will automatically detect these and insert HTML paragraph tags (<p>) into your writing.
  • Use Headings: If you plan to write a long post, use headings to break up your post sections. In HTML, headings are set using tags like h1, h2, and so on. You can also add headings by highlighting content in the body of your post, and then selecting one of the heading options from the “Format Style” menu in your WordPress Content Editor.
  • Use HTML: You don’t have to use HTML to create richly formatted content, as WordPress will automatically do this if you use the WordPress Editor. Having some basic knowledge of HTML, however, allows you to control different styling elements in your content (e.g. boxes and headings).
  • Spell Check & Proof: Check your spelling and proof everything before posting your content live. There are a number of spell check tools available for WordPress.
  • Focus On Content Quality: A great way to focus only on the content without distractions is to write your initial content in a text editor, then copy and paste this into WordPress.
  • Think Before You Publish: Everything you make public can be seen by lots of people and logged by search engines, making it harder to take things back. Take your time to plan and think about what you are writing and review your posts before publishing. Don’t rant … think!
  • Consider Your Target Readers: Think about who will read your content and take any appropriate measures and precautions you think may be required when writing your content to ensure that your privacy is protected.
  • Make Use Of Commenting: Comments let your users interact with you and share their ideas. You control your site’s comments and you can delete any comments that you don’t want published in your posts, so consider this fact when deciding whether to allow people to comment on your posts. Also, make sure that visitors can contact you privately if they need to (e.g. using a contact form).
  • Worry About Little Things Later: How your site looks is important, but it’s often not essential to getting your point across. In fact, because WordPress is so flexible as far as web design is concerned, you can just start publishing content to grow a readership, and then change your entire site’s look with just a few clicks of the mouse anytime you want, thanks to Themes. Remember that it’s great content that attracts and keeps your readers engaged, so focus on publishing great content and worry about little things later – With WordPress, you can change anything and everything any time you want!
  • Use Videos And Pictures: Images and videos help make your content interesting and help readers engage better with your posts. We provide additional tutorials on adding images and adding videos into your blog content.
  • Save Often: Save your posts regularly to prevent losing your work to accidents or computer errors. You can even do this without publishing your content as the section below will explain.
  • Publish Regularly: If you need great content ideas for your web site, then subscribe to our FREE email training series on content marketing here:
