Today we will explain the difference between posts and pages.
Posts are most commonly seen on blog sites, or in the blogging section of a company site. Posts are typically displayed in a list, newest first, with an excerpt of ech one, and a “read more” link to view the whole post.
Pages are geared toward more stable content which stays the same over time, such as the “About Us” page, or a map to our business, or the company mission statement. Pages are typically accessed through navigation features (menus) on the site.
We make short videos that explain WordPress concepts, show how-to, and give tips and tricks to make your site the best it can be. And we do it all in the time it takes to drink a cup of coffee.
We have quite a slate of videos queued up. They’re on our Youtube channel of course, and indexed and summarized here. If you have a WordPress question we haven’t tackled yet, please ask us here or in the comments on Youtube.
