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.
