Pages vs. Posts in WordPress

In WordPress you’ll have the option to create 2 different kind of content: post and pages. They look similar and they share many option and features but their nature is different.

A page is essentially a static content, something like an “About us” page or a disclaimer. A post is mainly a blog entry.

  • Posts appear in your website in reverse chronological order and get archived as they get older. They are included in RSS feed and you can organize them using tags and categories. By default WordPress allows people to comment on posts.
  • Pages do not get archived and are generally always visible on your website. Pages do not have tags and categories and by default you can’t leave comments on them. Pages are hierarchical and you can organize them using parent pages.

There is no limit to the number of pages or posts you can create
