The difference between posts and pages can sometimes be confusing — especially if your site uses custom menus that contain a mix of pages and categories.
So if you’re trying to figure out whether the new content you’re posting should be a post or a page, this post vs. page info graphic should help you figure that out. (Click the link to see the graphic as a large page.)
Note: These instructions are for a template which uses a “slider” (aka, slide show) on the home page. That criteria would also apply to a site that has one or more featured images on the home page. If your site has neither, just ignore that decision box.
