    Arvie –

    Welcome. I’m going to be using both on my site. You can take a look at http://yourpathtoweightloss.com. You’ll notice I have a few posts there (maybe it’s only one right now – I can’t remember). If you click on the First Time Here? menu item and select the Start Here option, that will take you to a page. That page will be changing soon but it’s one of my “pillar” articles. You can learn more about pillar content here: https://yoast.com/cornerstone-content-rank/ (they call it cornerstone content but it means the same thing).

    Rick,

    Thank’s for your answer, I found out that long ago I learned about it somewhere, but when you are actually doing the thing you can get stuck on as simple as deciding whether to use a post or a page…thanks for reminding me about this, Cheers!

    Thanks for the link. I’ve saved the page to Evernote for later reading. I’d forgotten about Bruce Clay. I didn’t know he was still around.

    One author (I think maybe it was Kristen Burgess – who’s a member here – but I can’t remember for sure if it was her or not) suggested that all your pillar (cornerstone, flagship, whatever you choose to call it) content should be pages and the supporting content should be posts.

    I read somewhere once that you should always use pages but I can’t remember why or who said it.

    For my Amazon stores I use both.
    Posts for the products
    Pages for the articles to attract visitors

    I just found this at http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/what-is-the-difference-between-posts-vs-pages-in-wordpress/

    Posts vs. Pages (Key Differences)

    The differences we list below definitely have exceptions. You can use plugins or code snippets to extend the functionality of both content types. Below is the list of key differences by default.

    Posts are timely vs. Pages are timeless.
    Posts are social vs. Pages are NOT.
    Posts can be categorized vs. Pages are hierarchical.
    Posts are included in RSS feed vs. Pages are not.
    Pages have custom template feature vs. Posts do not.
