posts and pages
Word-Press Sites are composed of two main structures: posts and pages.
At first, understanding the difference between posts and pages can be confusing.
Think of pages as your static content or “one-off” kind of content that will seldom need changing. This might for example be your About page and is seen as a timeless entity.
Posts on the other hand are your blog entries or dynamic content that gets added regularly.
Introduction to Pages
Pages are normally used for information that you want to share with your readers but don’t expect to update frequently.
The main things to remember are:
- Pages are best suited for information you rarely update such as your About, Contact and Blogging Guidelines pages.
- Situations where you want readers to discuss a question or topic are better suited to publish as a post and not a page.
- Assignment and homework information is normally best published as posts and not on a page.
- Too many pages can make information harder to manage and find.
If you look closely at a page you will see it is normally made up of:
- Page Title – tells the reader what the page is about.
- Your page content – this is information you want to share on this page
- Comments – most themes support comments at the bottom of the page. Comments are disabled on pages default and can be enabled.
