Create headers in WordPress
Headers are important to both draw attention to certain text by increasing the size and boldness as well as to improve SEO. To set up a header, you must create or edit an existing post or page.
- Log in to WordPress.
- Edit the post or page in which you want to add a header.
- Highlight the text you want to change into a header.
- From the text box toolbar, use the drop-down menu to select the style of header you want to use.
Note: If you do not see this drop-down, you may have a plugin or theme that has changed how this appears and will need to consult documentation for that plugin or theme.
- Click the Publish or Update button when you are finished making your changes.
Once you have saved your changes, you have added headers to your WordPress page or post.
