The two most common types of content that are managed on a WordPress powered website are Posts and Pages.
The publishing process is identical, and the same content could be published as either type, so choosing between them can be difficult. What does differ between Posts and Pages is how WordPress handles them.
A WordPress page should be used on content that won’t be changing very often. Example: About Us or Contact pages. These pages are providing a viewer with information that will generally stay the same.
WordPress Posts are great for content that you will be updating often such as a blog or news pages. This allows your viewers to often see updated information while still having access to previous content.
How to Tell if it is a Page or Post
The easiest way to tell the difference between a blog post and a page is to look at the heading above the “Add title” field. It will either say “Add New Page” or “Add New Post” if it is new. It will say “Edit Page” or “Edit Post” if it has already been saved or published.
Another way to help tell a page and post a part is to look at the sidebars in the Editor.
Pages will offer you options of setting your new page up as a parent or child page, while also allowing you to choose page templates and sidebars.
A Post sidebar will ask you to choose a category, add tags and a featured image to your post.
