The difference between Posts and Pages

Mak January 5, 2018

In video, I will show you the difference between posts and pages

The main difference between posts and pages is that with posts they show with the latest post at the top of the page and they are in date order and the content is always changing when you add a new post.  The post page are very popular with blogs and news websites because latest news and post are important

A page is a static page and it does not refresh.  It is better to have a page that is always changing because it is an advantage with Google because it gives priority to websites which have content which constantly changes.

I will show you how to create a page for your posts.

Click Pages and then add New, give it a title and publish.  You do not need to add anything to the content area

Now go to Settings and click Reading, choose static page.  Set the posts page to the page you created and save the changes.

Click on Appearance then menu, click the page you created and add to the menu and save

Refresh your page and your page now appears on the menu bar and if you click on it, you will notice that the posts appear on that page.
