Overview: Posts vs. Pages
Most sites make use of posts, which are, by default, displayed in reverse chronological order on your site. When a visitor reaches your site, they will see your latest content first.
Some content may be better suited for a static page, whether it's because you don't want the content to get "buried" in the ever-changing display of posts, or because the content is of general use and interest, such as a page describing the site's creator.
You can create a page by logging in to the WordPress Admin Panel and clicking on "Pages" then "Add New".
Examples of Common Pages
There are a few common examples of when to use pages for content:
- Copyright or Legal Notice
- Static Landing Page
