I was asked a very good question this morning: What exactly are the WordPress Pages for anyway?
Well, while they may seem pointless to some people (and they very well may be depending on the topic of your website), they do serve a purpose.
The pages are there for those items on a blog which:
- Shouldn’t be an actual entry to the blog, but are still necessary on the website
- Content that should be easily accessible and not buried in the archives
From the WordPress Codex:
Pages, or WordPress Pages are like Posts, except they can do much more than Posts, and they live outside of the normal blog chronology. You can use Pages to organize and manage any amount of content.
A few good uses for WordPress pages are the ‘About‘, ‘Contact‘, and ‘Legal‘ pages. Each of these pages are essential to some blogs and shouldn’t be buried deep in the blog’s archives.
