Post vs Page WordPress

When it comes to creating content for your WordPress site, you have the option to choose between creating a good post or page. Both have their uses and can add a very dynamic element to your site.

A common question for those who are new to blogging is “What is the difference between the posts and pages?”

Here’s our explanation to help eliminate the discrepancy between posts and pages.

About Posts

Posts are blog content listed in reverse chronological order (most recent content at the top). You will see on your blog page.

By default, your home page is your blog page and this is where you will see your new posts published. If you want your posts to appear on pages other than your homepage you can change that also.

Post normally consist of

  1. Post Title – Tells the reader what the post is about. A great post title draws the attention of readers and is more likely to encourage them to read your post.
  2. Content of the post – This is the main article you want to share and reflect on their readers
  3. Categories – Are used to help readers arrange posts on your blog.
  4. Tags – Are used to help readers locate posts on your blog. The tags are more like the index at the end of the book and exploit the issue in a million bits.
  5. Comments – All themes have a link to comments. This is where readers can click to post a comment in response to your message. 
  6. Date of publication – All messages displayed date post has published.
  7. Author Name – Most themes display the name of the post author. Your username will automatically appear unless you have changed your display name.
