Although the Post content type is separate from the Page content type, the process of adding, editing, and deleting them is nearly identical.
So in general, when editing posts you can use the instructions for editing pages.
There are two main differences between editing Posts and editing Pages:
- By default, Posts do not have the Page Attributes box, though some themes add this box for Posts.
- By default, Pages do have categories and tags as discussed below, though some themes add this box for Pages.
Categories & Tags
Categories and tags are settings to classify your posts. These are often referred to as “metadata”. In other words, categories and tags are data about the data. They tell us something about the post or page.
You set these values with the Categories and Tags boxes to the right of the main editor:
Some WordPress themes make use of categories and tags; others don’t.
Opinions vary on how to use categories vs. tags. A common guideline is:
- a post or page should be classified into one category
- a post or page may be described by multiple tags
