Posts and Pages

Your site is comprised of posts and pages.

Posts are entries that are created in blog format, and listed in reverse chronological order. Posts can be tagged with keywords and topics, and often encourage discussion through comments. Posts appear in the RSS feed for your site.

You can create a new post by clicking the "New" link in the top menu bar, or by going to the Posts section.

Pages are static and are not listed by date. Pages also do not have tags or categories.  You should use pages for content that is not associated with a specific date, and should be present on your site all the time (for example, an "About" page). Pages can be listed in a sidebar with the "Pages" widget, and many themes automatically list pages as well.

You can create a new page by clicking the "New" link in the menu bar, or by going to the Pages section.

By default, your blog posts will be listed in reverse chronological order on your homepage.  However if your site is not a blog, you can set a static page to be the front page of your site under Settings > Reading. Here you can also designate a different page to list your blog posts instead.
