If you’re feeling a little confused about when to use Pages or Posts, you’re not alone. Here’s what they are and when to use them.

Posts

Posts are the entries that displayed in reverse chronological order on your home page (or other listing page like categories).

In contrast to pages, posts usually have comment fields beneath them and are included in your site’s RSS feed.

Think of them as moving content.

Pages

Pages are similar to posts, but there are some key differences. 

  • Pages are for content that that doesn’t change very much. Think of them as static content.
  • Pages are for “non-blog” content. If you were to remove all of your blog posts, and leave just the pages, you would have a standard static web site.
  • Pages cannot be associated with Categories and cannot be assigned Tags.
  • Pages are not included in your site’s RSS feed.
