Your new website will be created with some demo content including text which you will need to replace with some text of your own.

You can also change the text on your website at any time in the future too, following the same steps below.

We have created a few video tutorials on how to change the content on your new website and these are accessible as from the dashboard of your website control panel. Included in these videos is one which shows how to edit the text on your website so be sure to check those out for a video tutorial of the following steps…

From the dashboard of your website control panel, click on the ‘Pages’ tab in the left-hand menu.

WordPress Website Dashboard

If you have a one-page website, then you will only see one page listed – your home page and you should click on that page where it says ‘Home’.

One Page Website Pages

If you have a multi-page website then you will see a list of all of the pages on your website and you should click on the page name which holds the text you wish to change.

In the screenshot below, we’re going to change some text on the ‘About’ page.

Once you are on the correct page, scroll down the page to find the text you would like to change.

WordPress Website Page Text Editor

All you need to do is click in the text editor, delete the existing text and then simply replace it with your own text by typing directly into the text box or copy and pasting from another document that you have pre-written.

You can repeat this process for all the sections of text that you wish to change including titles and testimonials etc.

Next, click the ‘Update’ button near the top right of the page to save all of the changes you have made to the page.
