How do I add a subpage in WordPress?

Adding a subpage or a child page is very easy in WordPress.
First, we need to have the parent page prepared or at least created and published. When that is ready we can either use a pre-made page or create a new one.

In the WP editor sidebar, there is a section called “Page Attributes”, from there you can change the page template, set a menu position for that page and make the page subpage by selecting a page in the “Parent Page” selector.

This way we can create complicated parent-child structures that are very handy when creating websites. Please keep in mind that the subpages are usually displayed as dropdowns in the menus.
