•WordPress Pages vs. Posts (Key Differences)


Pages vs. Posts: To summarize, the following are the key differences between posts vs pages in WordPress.

  Posts are timely vs. Pages are timeless.

  Posts are social vs. Pages are NOT.

  Posts are organized using categories and tags vs. Pages are hierarchical and can be organized as child and parent pages.

  Posts are included in RSS feed vs. Pages are not.

  Posts have author and published date vs Pages do not.

The differences we listed above may have exceptions. You can use plugins to extend the functionality of both content types.

Despite these differences, there are some similarities between pages and posts in WordPress. First, they are both used for publishing content. You can add text, images, forms, etc. to both posts and pages. There is featured image meta-field in both pages and posts.

You can build a website without ever using posts or blogging features of WordPress. You can also make a business website with pages and a separate blog section for your news, announcements, and other articles.
