WordPress Posts vs.Pages

When it comes to creating content for your WordPress site, you have the option to choose between creating either a post or page. Both have their respective uses and can add dynamic elements to your site.

WordPress post is what makes up the ‘blog’ aspect of your site. 

• These are generally news or informational updates about a certain topic. 
• 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 as the news portion of your site. They’re dynamic and constantly changing the content your end users see.

WordPress Pages are similar to posts in that they have a title and body text, but they are different because: 

• They are generally reserved for static content or information. 
• Examples of this would be an About Me or Contact Us page. 
• Pages aren’t 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.

Using Posts & Pages

Generally posts will be used for your blog content and pages will be used for standalone information that isn’t updated often. For example, an organization might use posts to handle news updates, press releases, job listings or new products. But they’d use pages to list “about” information, services, contact info, team bios, locations or bylaws. 

WordPress is flexible and you can use posts and pages however you want, but this gives you a basic overview of how they work.
