Pages in WordPress

In WordPress, you can write posts or pages. A regular blog entry is a post and posts normally appear in reverse chronological order on your homepage. Pages are for content such as ‘about’, ‘contact’, disclosure’, ‘legal information’, ‘reprint permissions’, ‘company information’, ‘privacy policy’, etc. Pages live outside of the blog chronology and are often used to present timeless information that is always applicable. You can use pages to manage and organize any content. In the following tutorial, we explain how you can add pages and edit pages in WordPress.
