Pages and Posts

When you start building your website, you have to design the structure.  How many static pages you have, and where do you put them.  Then you have to plan where will the posts appear, will they be on your front page of you want to place them somewhere else.

Some people like to put the “Privacy” page at the footer.  Or they might want to put their photo and a simple about me content on the sidebar.

If you are a blogger, you might want to have your latest post on the front page, so your visitor will see the fresh new content every time they visit you.

You should spend some time to design the structure before you start building your website.


  • A post may be text, photos, video or audio and other kind of contents.
  • Every month, the older material will be archived.  If you want certain posts to stay, you have to make them sticky – and they will not be archived.
  • You can put tags or label blog posts with keywords, so people could find it easily.
  • A post has a date and time stamp when you create them.  If you edit the post and the time stamp will change to the date and time when you edit it.  The date and time can be changed in quick edit.
  • Each post has its own URL and you can link to it with the permalink.



  • Page is static and it stays in place all the time, unless you change it.
  • Normally, there will be something that you don’t want to change like your “About Me” page, “Privacy Policy” page, “Disclaimer” page which you do not have to change and you want them to stay and not archived.
  • You can add a “Contact” page if you want your visitor to contact you.  It will have your address, email address or phone number of your business.
