How to Delete a Page on WordPress

Table of Contents

WordPress is a powerful content management system (CMS) that allows website owners to easily create and manage their websites, including editing and creating pages. However, from time to time, you may need to delete an existing page on your website. The process for deleting a page differs slightly depending on whether you are using the Classic Editor or the Block Editor. In this blog post, we will provide step-by-step instructions for how to delete a page in both editors.

Using the Classic Editor

The first step is to log into your WordPress dashboard. From there, go to Pages > All Pages. This will bring up a list of all the pages currently on your website. Find the page you want to delete and click its title to open it in the editor. Once you’re inside the editor, look for the “Trash” link beneath the Publish button in the right sidebar. Click it and confirm that you want to delete the page by clicking “OK” when prompted. That’s it! Your page is now deleted.

Using the Block Editor (Gutenberg)

Log into your WordPress dashboard and then go to Pages > All Pages in order to locate the page you wish to delete. Click its title and open it up in Gutenberg editor window. At this point, you should see an option labelled “Move To Trash” appear beneath the title field at top of screen. Click this button and then confirm that you want to delete this page by clicking “OK” when prompted. Again, that’s all there is too it—your page has been successfully deleted!


Deleting pages from your WordPress website doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated—as long as you know which steps need taken! Whether you’re using Classic Editor or Gutenberg (the Block Editor), there are simple steps that can help make sure your process goes smoothly so that any unwanted pages are quickly removed from view in no time at all! Website owners should use caution when deleting pages as this cannot be undone without restoring from backup files or databases if available. If done correctly however, deleting pages can be a straightforward process with either editor used within WordPress today!
