And if you want to create a page then click on pages and then add new.

Keep in mind that page and post both are different things in WordPress.

Posts are elements of the information listed in chronological sequence on a blog page.

They’re frequently in the form of articles and posted format on a regular basis.

While, Pages are created for stuff that is static and never changes, such as a home page or a contact page.

You can change pages every now and again, but they mostly stay the same.

There you can write your title in the paragraph or content area, you can add it by using the (+) Plus sign on the body of the content page.
