WordPress Posts vs Pages — 6 Comments

  1. Yes, the differences between posts and pages were an enigma to me which I slowly figured out. Reading your post here in time would have made things easier!
    I use posts for srticles which, with the plugin, are transferred automatically to MEDIUM. Although I don’t have a lot of followers there yet, but it seems to me a platform for more elevated writings and that’s what I normally do.
    Pages are the platforms for my broadcasts, the places which need editing a lot before they have the right shape – and for having them approved by my guests I need to publish them them NOT to automatically appear in the blog-section.

  2. Hello Marion,

    I avoid adding pages due to a specific problem that I don’t usually see discussed. Perhaps you have a suggestion. On a desktop there is no problem but when viewed on a mobile device (specifically a cell phone since it has a smaller screen) my pages show up at the top so in order to see my posts, the viewer would have to scroll down. I am afraid an About Me page, Privacy Policy page etc. etc. will be too boring to capture their attention.

    I want the real content to be front and center. Therefore I keep my pages to a minimum. There are more I would like to add but I don’t know how to avoid this problem. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them

    Thanks,

    Jessica

    • Hi Jessica,

      Sorry it’s taken so long for me to get back to you. We’re all very busy at this time of the year.

      My suggestion for your website menu is to add your categories to your main menu and put the pages into a drop-down under ‘About’ instead of having them listed individually. This video will show you how.

      Best,
      Marion

  3. Thank you so much! I really made a mess of things by publishing content as posts when I wanted it as pages. Ugh. This article and plugin will save me a lot of aggravation. There really is a plugin for everything, but your expertise makes finding them a lot easier!

  4. Yes, in the beginning, i struggled a little with the right way how to make my posts vs projects vs pages, but had to find out. You are correct how you write it. However did you also come across projects, do you use them, if yes for what.

    • Projects are part of WordPress.com not part of the core of WordPress (from WordPress.org) so I have never used them. This article explains about the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org and WordPress the content management system.

      Thank you for reading.
