I'm new to WordPress, trying to learn it's capabilities.

My Goal

My goal is to make a normal website but have it's content (text and images) be adjustable by the user / client, managed content.

An example navigation may be:

  • Home (normal web page)

  • About (normal web page)

  • Services (normal web page)

  • Contact Us (normal web page)

  • Blog (blog page)

My Question

Is this achievable? So far, it seems that WordPress is so blog-page-centric, that only via Posts would one be able to go in and make changes, but I want the user to be able to say, edit the address on the contact and home page at any time.

I know it's most likely possible, but I'm having a very hard time finding resources that don't talk about creating a blog-like theme. Thanks for any help.

  • You just go into Pages, and click the page you want to edit, then you can edit it. Have you set the site up yet? Where are you having trouble? – Jacob Peattie Jun 11 '19 at 3:26
  • Well, I'm use to building things from scratch, not using WYSIWYG. I'd like to have extremely custom html / css, then simply output the correct content, like text, into those areas. Maybe it's loop related or something. The goal is that if they need to change something, they don't have to come to me to edit source code. – Kenny Jun 11 '19 at 3:29

    You must use page builder (visual composer or beaver builder), if you want to give a client to access, a part component on specific page, like address or image. – Manyang Jun 11 '19 at 3:46

    If you want full control over the markup and styling, you can create your own blocks for the editor, or use a custom fields plugin (like Advanced Custom Fields) to add fields to the editor that you can use to populate your templates. – Jacob Peattie Jun 11 '19 at 12:21
