Usually people want to know, How to add page in wordpress? What is the difference between page and a posts? It is important to understand difference between page and post.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PAGE AND POST
If we talk about content writing and web page format, pages and posts are similar, both are web pages.
Main difference between them is, Pages are used for static purpose like contact us, about us, home page. These pages have no series of content, while, if I say Mobile, it has numerous topics I can make. Mobiles are Android phone, Mac OS, Featured phone.
So what would I like, I write about all these OS they are and put them in a category Mobile.
Now I know Android also have numerous versions, So again create a category Android whose parent category was Mobile and write about those versions. If user click category Mobile then posts related to that category will appear in-front, If select Android then post lie under this category will appear.
This is the way posts and pages play their role.
