Creating a WordPress page is very similar to creating a post. Just remember that pages are intended for static content like About Me or Contact Us page. A page is also helpful if you want to have a page that looks completely different than rest of your blog but still runs on the WordPress CMS.
1) Select the word "Pages" and then "Add New" on the dashboard.
2) When the page form appears, type a title and any content that you want to be posted to your page. Then click the "Publish" button on the right to post it to your site.
The key differences between posts and pages:
WordPress post is what makes up the blog aspect of your site.
- These are generally news or informational updates about a certain topic or talking point.
- Posts are listed in reverse chronological order and can be tagged, categorized and even archived on your site.
- Posts can be found in the Archives, Categories, Recent Posts, and other widgets.
- WordPress posts are what make up the RSS content of your WordPress blog. So, when someone subscribes to your RSS feed, your posts will be the content that’s delivered to them.
WordPress Pages are similar to posts in that they have a title and body text, but they are different because:
- they are generally reserved for static content or information.
- Examples of this would be an About Me or Contact Us page.
- Pages are not listed by date and can’t be categorized or tagged like WordPress posts,
- Pages can have a hierarchy, which means you can nest pages under other pages by making one the “Parent” of the other, thus creating a group of pages.
