Posts Vs. Pages

This was a test post used while making our WordPress Posts Vs. Pages video.

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.
