WordPress Page vs Post- Knowing The Difference
Here?s a breakdown to help you see the difference in the two
- Is what a site is made up of (Homepage, About Page, ect)
- Static and only updated occassionally.
- By default they are not included in your RSS feeds
- Do not have comments.
- Are hierarchical by nature. This means you can have sub-pages within a page.
- Makes up your site?s content.
- Show in reverse chronological order to show the newest first.
- Included in RSS feeds
- By default allows comments
- Organized by categories and tags
Think of it as…
View a ?Page? like the rooms in your house.? They are set with their ceiling, walls, and floor.? A room isn?t something you structurally change on a regular basis.? View a Post as furniture for your rooms.? You can add a chair or picture to a room at any time. Typically, what you add goes with the ?theme? of that room.? For example, if you have a bedroom (your ?page?) you can add a bed, nightstand, dresser, ect (your ?post?) to fill your room.?? You wouldn?t take a dresser and turn it into a room (although I?m not saying Pinterest doesn?t have something on that lol).? In the same sense, you can?t create a page in a post.
