A question we are often asked is “What is the difference between WordPress Pages and WordPress Posts?”
Difference between WordPress Pages and Posts
Posts belong to a date in time
A post may be a news item, a blog entry or a diary entry. It could be a press release released on a certain date or a news story about your organisation
Typically, posts will not be updated on an ongoing basis - for example News items relating to an event would exist within their own individual news posts published at a specific time - you would not usually update a single news post with updated content.
Posts support Categories and Tags whereas Pages do not (usually)
An index of Posts are often presented on a WordPress page, such as a Latest News page. Think of individual posts as news stories within a newspaper.
Pages Form Website Structure
Other Post Types
Some themes or plugins will add other content types. Common examples include Projects, Portfolio items or Team Members
