WordPress Posts And Pages- What Is The Deference?
What Is The Deference Between WordPress Posts And Pages?
Pages In WordPress are static and are not listed by date, pages also do not use Tags or Categories.
In Pages (the link) can be displayed in the sidebar using a widget or placed in your themes menues.
The order of your pages can be changed as you wish by Simply hovering over the page title you want to change in your dashboard.
Click on Quick Edit – you’ll see where you can change the order. 0 is first and 1 is next and so on. You can have as many pages as you want there is no limit. See the screenshot below.
A WordPress post is an entry on your website/blog listed in reverse chronological order. This is the fresh content you write for your website.
The Posts can be found the Archives, Categories, Recent Posts, and other widgets on your website. They are also listed in the RSS feed of your website.
If you create a Sticky Post it will appear before all your posts. You can control the number of posts to appear on your site by going to Settings – Reading in your dashboard- See the shot below.

With posts you can create what is called a blogroll (a summary page of the all your posts) this gives your readers and easier navigation and exposure to your posts.
In the image (1) below you see where we can assign a static front page (a page that we must have already created) for your website in WordPress Dashboard.
There is no right or wrong with setting up your website but this is ONE explanation of how you can structure your website. And There are no “set in stone” rules about how to setup your website, but I do recommend setting up the main framework of your site using “pages”. Pages are found on your website using url’s like this: http://www.yourwebsite.com/page-name-here
