PAGES VS ARTICLES

The two ways you can create content are with Pages and Articles. Creating and editing Pages and Articles are very similar.

Consider these key differences when deciding whether to create a Page or an Article.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PAGES AND ARTICLES

Pages are for primary, static, timeless content. For example - About Us, Contact, or Services pages.
Articles are for unranked, non-hierarchial content. For example - blog posts or news articles.

  • Pages are timeless while Articles are timely. 
  • Pages are organized hierachially while Articles are organized categorically. 
  • Pages are not meant to be social while Articles can be.
  • Pages do not have an author or publish date while Articles can.

CREATE A NEW PAGE/ARTICLE

To create a new Page or Article:

  1. Click the Pages or Articles menu item: 

     The Pages and Articles items in the menu

  8. If you would like this Page or Article to appear in a Menu - see Menus. 
  9. Once you're satisfied, click Publish to push the Page or Article live. 

Important to note:

  • The URL will automatically generate from the Page or Article title. If you want a specific URL, enter that URL path in the Page or Article URL field. Enter only what would come after the main site address. It is highly recommended to never edit this field unless you completley understand the effects it may have on your SEO. 
  • Name your Pages and Articles logically with relevance to the content, so they are easy to find when you want to edit them.
