A simple WordPress web page structure is made up of three basic building “blocks”: a header, the content, and a footer. Each of these blocks is generated by a template file in your current WordPress Theme.
- The header contains all the information that needs to be at the top — i.e. inside the <head> tag — of your XHTML web page, such as the <doctype>, <meta> tags and links to style sheets. It also includes the opening <body> tag and the visible header of your blog (which typically includes the title of your site, and may also include navigation menus, a logo bar, the description of your site, etc.).
- The content block contains the posts and pages of your blog, i.e. the “meat” of your site.
