In this tutorial, we will learn WordPress posts and WordPress pages. WordPress by default provides two ways to add content on your site.
Both types are available for a reason, and each of them has their own functionalities and limitations. The main difference between WordPress posts and pages is that the WordPress post is a dynamic entity and WordPress page is a static entity.
WordPress Posts are a dynamic entity that will have published or updated date and you will see published posts articles listed on your blog page. The WordPress posts will be arranged in reverse chronological order means the newest article will be on top and the oldest article will be in the bottom. In WordPress, you can add and edit posts from the ‘Posts’ menu in your dashboard.
These pages are mostly used when we want to publish static content for our audience. Static content means evergreen page which will remain the same and isn’t updated frequently. Unlike posts, that can be updated once in a while.
You can add and edit pages any time you want from the ‘Pages’ menu in your dashboard.
