WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

There are key differences between pages and posts that are important to understand when working with them.

Properties of a Page Properties of a Post
  • Blog pages are displayed independently of post history and are more static.  They remain the same from day to day since they are rarely updated
  • Normally used for information that you want to share with readers but don’t expect to update frequently.
  • Pages don’t have time stamps so don’t show the date they are published.
  • Blog pages can appear any where in your blog depending on your theme.
  • You can change the order pages appear.
  • You can’t assign category and tags to pages.
  • Pages don’t appear in RSS feeds so readers need to visit your blog to view latest page updates.
