WordPress Posts vs Pages

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 very dynamic elements to your site.

WordPress Posts vs Pages

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

  • 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 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 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 a date or time publishing

I am a loving father, & husband. I am a computer enthusiast. I have used and enjoyed computers since I was young and I enjoy teaching young minds how to code, because it teaches them how to think. Today with YouTube, and social media garbage our youth are losing the ability to think on their own and solve problems. I believe this is a serious epidemic as kids today dont understand that technology is a tool. This tool is being abused, and its underlying effects are taking its toll on kids behaviour, and learning.
