When it comes to creating content for your WordPress site, you have the option to choose between creating either a post or page. Both have their respective uses and can add very dynamic elements to your site.
A WordPress post is what makes up the blog aspect of your site. Posts are what make your blog a blog. They are servings of content that are listed in reverse chronological order on your blog’s front page (you can change the default order to list posts chronologically using these instructions). Posts are always associated with a date, which is included in the URL. Sometimes, posts are confused with pages
Posts are listed in reverse chronological order and can be tagged, categorized and even archived on your site
They are generally news or informational updates about a certain topic or talking point
WordPress posts are what make up the RSS content of your WordPress blog

Think of the posts at the news portion of your site. They’re dynamic and constantly changing the content your end users sees.

Due to their static nature, pages aren’t included in RSS feeds and won’t have date or time publishing.
