WordPress Post vs. Page.
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a WordPress post and a page, or which you should use for a particular use? In this article we are going to explain the difference and how they are used.
Let’s begin by talking about a Post.
According to the WordPress codex,
Posts are what make your blog a blog — they’re servings of content that are listed in reverse chronological order on your blog
Posts can be found in the archives, categories, recent posts and can be used in widget areas.
Posts are what make up the RSS feed for your blog.
Now let’s explore a WordPress Page.
Pages are static and not associated to a date. Pages are really for information that remains the same and will be referenced again and again, like your “about” or “contact” pages.
Pages do not use tags or categories.
Content is added in reverse chronological order
Can be organized with categories and tags
Can be displayed on your home page (front page) or on a blog page
Are what makes up your RSS feed
Associated with date published
For blog content
Static content (about, contact, legal policies)
Not time dependent
Can use page templates
For non-blog content
Not included in your sites RSS feed
Creating a page is very similar to creating a post. Posts can be organized using categories while pages can be called for reference in a menu or other area.
