What is the difference between “post” and “page” in WordPress?

many people are confused in page and post difference. wordpress  comes  with two content type post and page begineer developer are confused,


These are your static pages.  Examples of your pages would be: About, Services, Contact, etc. While the WordPress database stores the published date of the page, pages are timeless entities. For example, your about page is not suppose to expire.


If you want to write a normal blog post, normally you should use a post. For example, the content you’re reading right now is published as a WordPress post can also post types.

Notice the date at the top of this blog page. It shows that this is a post and not a page. However I can have the exact same content on a WordPress page too, but that has limitations of its own.

At a high level, that’s the most important difference:

  • WordPress posts are for timely blog posts and have a publish date
  • WordPress pages are for timeless static content and don’t have a publish date
  • wordpress posts can create categories or tag ,
  • wordpress page cannot use categories or tags.
  • Posts are for timely content.
  • Pages are for static, timeless content.

Your RSS feed only shows your site’s latest posts. It does not include pages.

Post Formats. Essentially, these make it easy to style your post differently depending on the type of content. Usually, you’ll have formats for things like:

  • Image
  • Video
  • Quote
  • Gallery
  • Audio
  • link
  • status
  • chat
  • Etc.
