Pages vs Categories

  • carpconnect


    Hello, ok i building site for a certain bread of dog, of course i want to offer the community some info on the breed but am not sure how best to achieve this!

    I was going to create some pages, history, health etc etc but when i looked a petomondo site that runs buddypress they have used categories and created post in these categories.

    I was wondering how others do and what are benefits and draw backs of each method?

    This is a basic WordPress question and not a BuddyPress question.

    Pages cannot have categories or tags. If you want or need these, then you’ll have to use WP posts instead.

    Here’s a link to a WP codex article on pages that will help answer some of your questions.

    Now, you could use BuddyPress groups along with Burt Adsit’s BP Content plugin to accomplish your goal.

    Ya… I don’t think there is any right and wrong way… it depends on what you’re trying to do. But in general… I think of Pages as being for static content that rarely changes and it organized according to a navigation hierarchy while Posts are for more timely content that is organized by date and can additionally be filtered by category/tag. To me… info about a breed is a Page. Sounds like static info to me. But again… it depends.



    Thanks for replies, i leaning towards pages as this content will be static but could be compliment with categories and posts.
