Posts are blog entries — or articles—that are displayed in chronological order on your homepage, typically with the newest post at the top. Unlike pages, posts usually have comments beneath them and are also included in your site’s RSS feed.
- These are generally news or informational updates about a certain topic or talking point.
- Posts are listed in reverse chronological order and can be tagged, categorized and even archived on your site.
- WordPress posts are what make up the RSS content of your WordPress blog. So, when someone subscribes to your RSS feed, your posts will be the content that’s delivered to them.
- Think of the posts at the news portion of your site. They’re dynamic and constantly changing the content your end users sees.
Pages, on the other hand, are typically used for “static content” — or content that doesn’t change very often. Pages are typically included in your site’s navigation menu, which is usually located at or near the top of the site.
- they are generally reserved for static content or information.
- Examples of this would be an About Me or Contact Us page.
- Pages are not listed by date and can’t be categorized or tagged like WordPress posts,
- Pages can have a hierarchy, which means you can nest pages under other pages by making one the “Parent” of the other, thus creating a group of pages.
- Due to their static nature, pages aren’t included in RSS feeds and won’t have date or time publishing
