The difference between posts and pages can be confusing if you’re new to WordPress so let me break it down:
- Posts are individual entries listed on your blog’s home page in reverse chronological order.
- Pages are static entries. They aren’t listed by date and are usually accessed by a link on your home page. The best example is an About page. On this blog, all the menus at the top of this home page, “About the Professor,” “Class Schedule,” “Final Project,” and “Handouts” lead to pages.
