Page or Post

Usage

The content of posts is closely related to a notion of time, publication date, like a newspaper. Examples include :

  • Announcement of an event or article about it
  • Regular information on what’s going on in a lab, the evolution of a particular project

On the other hand, the content of a page is static and will hardly change over time or be obsolete as time goes by. Examples include :

  • Laboratory presentation, project description, etc
  • Guidelines, online help
