What is the Difference Between Posts vs. Pages in WordPress

Back to: WordPress 101: Classic

In this video, the second in this series, we’ll take a look at the two primary forms of content supported by WordPress: Posts and Pages

Posts are blog entries — or articles—that are displayed in chronological order on your homepage, typically with the newest post at the top. Unlike pages, posts usually have comments beneath them and are also included in your site’s RSS feed.

Pages, on the other hand, are typically used for “static content” — or content that doesn’t change very often. Pages are typically included in your site’s navigation menu, which is usually located at or near the top of the site.

Covered in this video:

  • Posts and Pages in WordPress.
  • The key differences between Posts and Pages.
  • Examples of both, in action.
