Creating and Using Pages in WordPress
In WordPress, you can write either posts or pages. When you're writing a regular blog entry, you write a post. Posts automatically appear in reverse chronological order on your blog's home page. On the other hand Pages are for content such as "About Us," "Contact Us," etc.
You can use Pages to organize and manage any amount of content. In general, Pages are very similar to Posts in that they both have titles and content and can use your site's presentation templates to maintain a consistent look throughout your site. Pages, though, have several key distinctions that make them quite different from Posts.
