In a nutshell, the main difference between posts and pages are that posts are blog entries or articles (the one you write) while pages are those static pages. Posts are usually sorted chronologically with the latest entries at the top. Posts usually appear on your sites homepage (front page) and “latest/recent post” widget on your sidebar. On the other hand, pages are typically used for static content (content that doesn’t change very often). Pages are usually included in your site’s navigation menu which appears at or near the top of your site. Pages are excluded from the normal blog chronology and they are displayed individually. This means that every new page you create doesn’t appear on your homepage and “recent posts” list. Instead they are included in the navigation menu of your blog. Pages also don’t have the “categories” and “tag” functions which you will normally see in posts. Pages can be organized into subpages by selecting a sub-parent. When a sub-page is created, it appears under its page parent in a drop down menu in a navigation bar.
