Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a page and post in WordPress? It can be confusing, considering they are both used to create content on your website. This blog post will explore the difference between pages and posts so you know which one to use for different types of content!
Pages are used to create static content, such as your website’s homepage or an “About Me” page. Posts are used to create dynamic content that is updated regularly, such as a product listing.
Posts are the backbone of your website. They provide a way for you to share information about what is going on in your life, business and more! Posts can be displayed either by date or reverse-chronological order with most recent post at top (depending). Your profile page can also houses new posts from blogs connected through WordPress.
2 Practical Differences Between WordPress Posts and Pages
#1: Posts can be automatically added to your website’s RSS feed, while pages are not.
This difference is mostly for those who use WordPress for a blog. When you create a post, it will be automatically included in your RSS feed, which can then be syndicated out to other websites and subscribers. If you create a page instead, it will not be included in your RSS feed.
You can add a page to the RSS feed by using a plugin such as Yoast SEO, but it is not recommended because pages are typically used for static content that does not change often!
#2: Posts can be tagged and categorized, while pages cannot.
If you want to organize your posts into different categories or tags for easier content management, go ahead! You can create as many post tags and categories as needed. Pages do not support the use of tags or categories – all page titles are automatically recognized by WordPress when creating a link back to that page.
This difference can be helpful if you want to quickly find a particular post, but it is not as necessary for pages since they are typically used for static content.
If you’re using WordPress for a blog, make sure to use tags and categories to help organize your posts!
