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
- Posts are listed in reverse chronological order. In other words, the most recent articles are displayed first
- Posts are displayed on a dedicated page. This page can be your site’s home page.
