In pretty much all WordPress themes there is a filed called page.php. This is the template that controls "Pages" - one of the default type of content that all WordPress sites have. Pages differ from Posts in that they don't go to the RSS feed, they don't use the permalink URL structure you choose for Posts, and they are able to have a parent page, creating nested structure.

Pages are great for "timeless" content like an about page or contact page. Jeff's site has both of those. We don't pick any particular template for these pages, we leave them at "Default Template" and then fix up the page.php template to accomodate.

We have a bit of a discussion about headers and which headers we should alter to meet our needs on this generic template.

Posting Code

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.

Code of Conduct

Absolutely anyone is welcome to submit a comment here. But not all comments will be posted. Think of it like writing a letter to the editor. All submitted comments will be read, but not all published. Published comments will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion or debate.
