Adding Posts and Pages

Adding pages is an important part of any website. Your contact information, bio, etc., will all live on a page.

Pages are unlike posts in that they aren’t part of the blog chronology, which means they won’t show up in a feed of all the blog posts. Pages are used to represent information about you and your business in a place that can be easily found.

Pages are: 

  • for content that isn’t time dependent.
  • able to be organized into parent pages and child pages.
  • more likely to be favoured by Google as Google often places more importance on top level content vs. posts.
  • able to take advantage of different layouts exclusive to pages (layouts you cannot use on posts).

Pages are not:

  • going to show up in a chronological view of your website.
  • going to show up in your website’s RSS feed.
  • files that exist outside of your database.
  • cannot be assigned to categories.
