Pages are similar to posts in that they both have the following:
- Add Media
- Add Contact Form
- Discussion Options
- Sharing Options
- Featured Image
- Privacy Settings
Pages are not listed by date; they don’t have tags or categories, and you can change the template.
You can use a menu to make your pages stand out for readers, or you can use the pages widget. Some themes show pages in tabs at the top of a blog.
Popular uses for pages are for content that does not changes often, such as:
- Category Page
- Contact Page
- About Page
- Home Page
Posts are typically used for writing a blog entry. And posts function differently than pages. They can be found in archives, categories, recent posts, various widgets and RSS feeds of your blog. Posts, in a default setup, appear in reverse chronological order on your blog’s home page.
There are also different ways of showing posts. For example, you can create a sticky post, which means that the post will show before all other posts.
You can also limit the number of posts shown by going to Dashboard>Reading>Settings.
