Pages vs. Posts
If you’re new to WordPress you may be wondering what’s the big deal behind Pages and Posts. At first glance they appear to be one and the same: if you were to create either a new page or a new post you’d be presented with nearly identical interfaces and in many cases the public appearance of pages and posts will look the same.
Don’t let this fool you. There’s a very fundamental difference between the two and that difference is what makes CMSs, like WordPress, great platforms for integrating blogs with traditional websites.
Think about the kind of pages that make up a typical website. Most often you’ll see pages like „Home”, „About Us”, „Services”, „Contact Us”, etc. Within WordPress these are often treated as Pages; documents that have no particular regard for the time they were posted.
For example, when you visit the „About Us” page of your favorite company’s website you don’t expect the content to be very different from what was available there a week ago.
