Cemeteriat can be a little intimidating at first, so let’s take a tour…

The “magic” begins as soon as the plugin is activated.

Cemeteriat automatically creates 1 page, a Headstone index

The Headstone page becomes the “parent” page for all the plot/interment pages.

In earlier versions of WordPress, pages with no parent were added to the main menu.  If there were hundreds of headstone pages the header became unusable.

Adding a parent page allows the user more control over menu design.

Currently the Cemeteriat shortcode for the index pages is placed in a “classic” block instead of a “short code” block.
This is because the current version of Cemeteriat precedes Gutenberg.

Not to worry – the shortcodes still work from the classic block.

Deleting the Headstone page could cause issues with the creation of new headstone pages.

Once headstone pages exist, they will be indexed on the Headstone page. Additional indices can be created as we shall see later.
