Understanding Pages Content

Last Update: January 12, 2017

Hello Everyone,

I think I understand that pages differ from posts in that pages are part of the framework of my website and are permanent.

My question is this....should the information on a "page" be very detailed about the website and if so, do we then break all that information on the "page" into smaller subjects in the "posts".

For instance...my website is about vegetable gardening. My pages are Gardening, Food & Reviews, along with About Me & Privacy Policy.

Should the Gardening page be an overview of what gardening entails and then the posts be more like "how to start a garden, preparing the soil, what to plant etc."

Then the "Food" page has posts about "how to preserve the food, recipes, etc.

Then the Reviews page talks about different product reviews?

Thanks for your help.

Eve

I view the purpose of each as:)

Posts are about the general subject: Garden and the fun,
Pages will be about: The profit potential (if you are going that direction with them)
Garden in small places
Pot gardening
organic gardening
and so on.

the posts can be a highlighting of each and sending your readers to the appropriate page.

Posts are more dynamic. Pages are standard information archived in a site. Yes you can liven up page content in posts!

Hi ELaNere,

Pages and posts do not have much difference.

The only different is posts allows your viewer to comments = more user engagement. Good for your website.

Pages will not show a date you create the content. Whereas Posts do show the date to your readers.

.Here is a video that might explain more:
