What is a post? How is a post different than a page? Well there are actually quite a few differences!
- Posts are social
- Posts have a single template
- Post can be used in a variety of functions
- Posts can be tagged and categorized
For many Wordpress users the main use of a post is for their blog. Since a post has a singular template, it can be used in a wide variety of ways. While blogs are the most popular, on your site you can also use posts for widgets. Since you can categorize and tag posts, you can create widgets such as Featured Property, News, Success Stories and so on.
Posts are created and edited just like page. But now you can add a category. In the widgets section you can have a widget pull in any post within a certain category, thus allowing you to create a custom widget!
