Difference Between Page and Post in WordPress

Mainly pages are static in nature and you don’t change it quite often. Once you publish it, very rare you change it. For example About Us, Contact Us, Privacy Policy, etc are pages. And normally, you don’t change it frequently.

However, if I talk about posts, we normally update them quite often. For example, you are reading a post. Pages normally have some main information about your website. And ideally, you update them when it is normally necessary or important to change.

Pages don’t have Categories and Tags. Pages are arranged hierarchically. However, posts have categories and tags. It is your wish you include tags and categories for your post or not.

Categories and tags are very important for your post and help your users to navigate. Normally, you should include categories and tags in your posts.

Ideally, you don’t have any publishing date and author name on your pages. However, posts have a publishing date and author name.

  • Static in Nature
  • Category
  • Tags
  • Author Name
  • Publishing date

As you know that you can create pages and post to publish your content on your website. But it is important that you must know the difference between page and post.

You should know that where should you use pages and posts. For example, if you want to create a privacy policy or about us, you should create pages. And in case, you want to write a article on a particular topic, you should create post.

However, you can include images, inforgraphics, videos, etc in both the cases, either you create page or post. Canva is one of the best tool to create image, infographics, etc.
