    How to get Wordpress to create page in directory of choice?

    In the Add Page feature in wordpress I've been unable to determine how one can create a page in a specific directory, it just seems to put the page where it wants and gives no options.

    For instance, if I created a landing page and wanted to put it in how would I do this from Wordpress?

    In WordPress there are no actual folders (directories) to house different pages; only a different hierarchy within the database, which is controlled through the WP admin panel (dashboard).

    If you wish to have pages that appear to be in sub-folders or sections of a site, you can make the sub-pages have a parent page. You don't have to put any information on the parent page, and you don't have to include it in your menu.

    For example, if you have a page called 'Landing' that you want to appear as being in a different directory, you can create a page (let's call it My Pages" and leave it empty. Then you can select 'My Pages' as the parent page of 'Landing' when you're creating the 'Landing' page. Then your URL (if using permalinks) might be something like:

    http: // mysite .com/my-pages/landing

    That's as close as you can get if you want to do it inside WordPress.

    There is a way to do this using FTP and creating subfolders within the root, and then pointing the pages directly to the absolute path in the menu, but it requires you to create the pages in a text editor and not in the dashboard.
