I common question people usually ask is, “What is the difference between a WordPress Page and a WordPress Post?”
Within WordPress, Pages are different from posts because they don’t get archived the way your blog posts/articles do. They aren’t categorized or tagged, they don’t appear in your listing of recent blog posts or date archives, and they aren’t syndicated in the RSS feeds available on your site.
Content on a page generally doesn’t change. Pages are considered static or stand-alone content and exist separately from the archived post content on your site. With the page feature, you can create an unlimited amount of static pages separate from your blog posts. People commonly use this feature to create ‘About Me’ or ‘Contact Me’ pages, among other things.The table below shows the differences between posts and pages by showing you the different ways the WordPress platform handles them.
