What to use: WordPress Post vs. Page – πŸ“πŸ†šπŸ“„

Posts are articles listed in reverse chronological order that are easy to read, share or comment on. While Pages primarily include static information about your organization, products or services, etc., they don’t usually have comment areas and share links.

Posts can be more easily organized and used to interact with your audience, whereas pages are mostly static content.


When should you use WordPress pages?

Pages should be used for static content, for example:

  • Homepage to present your company
  • News page that will show all posts
  • About page showing your information
  • Contact page containing your email and address

Pages don’t contain comment forms, or share buttons so they can’t easily be engaged with. but that’s okay, why would you want someone to comment on your contact page instead of filling in the contact form?

Pages can’t be grouped by a category or tag, but only by hierarchy, for example:

legal pages
- privacy policy
- terms of service
- cookie notice

You should use pages for information that rarely changes.


When should you use WordPress posts?

You should use posts when you want to engage with your visitors by allowing them to comment, vote, or share articles.

Posts can easily be grouped into Categories or tags, which allows better browsing of the website and helps users easily find what they want. for example:

2022
- 03/17/post-title/
- 03/09/post-title/
- 02/22/post-title/
