Post vs. Page

There are very key differences between posts and pages in your WordPress website. While publishing posts is the primary way to share content on your site, you can also add additional pages to make it look and feel more like a traditional website.


Posts are entries listed in reverse chronological order oncategory page. If you have created any sticky posts, those will appear before the other posts. Posts can be found in the Archives, Categories, Recent Posts, and other widgets. Posts are also displayed in the RSS feed of the blog. The URL for a post includes the date the post was published like this:

To create a new post head to Posts -> Add New in your site’s Dashboard. You have to choose a format to your post, a category, tags and even you can assign a Featured Image to this post. If you will not choose a format or a category, the system will use the default settings.

Pages can be displayed in the sidebar using the Pages widget, and some themes display pages in tabs at the top of the blog. If you have 50 pages and you use the Pages widget, then all pages will be listed all the time. The URL for a page looks like this:

Creating a page is just as easy. You just head to Pages -> Add New in the Dashboard.
