One of the common tasks for managing content in WordPress is deleting pages. You will often delete pages which are no longer relevant or simply being replaced. If you are using a WordPress website builder, chances are slim, but it may add a page or two that you dont really want or need. So now you need to delete it, because you like being organized.
The following directions will show you how to quickly and easily identify and delete the pages that you no longer need.

How to Delete Pages in the WordPress Dashboard Administrator Area
- Log in to the WordPress Dashboard.
- In the menu at left, click on All Pages.
- Find the page or pages that you want to delete.
- If you are deleting multiple pages in the WordPress interface, make sure that you have the correct pages marked for deletion, then click on the drop-down menu labeled Bulk Actions. Select Move to Trash then click on the Apply button. If you are deleting a single page, click on Trash.
At this point, the file or files that you have chosen to delete will immediately be placed in the trash. You can still recover the files in the trash unless the files have been cleared.
