Page vs. Post vs. Event
You have some information that you want to put on your website. Should you add a Page, a Post, or an Event?
Page: A Page is meant to be a static and relatively permanent part of your website (for example, the About Us page). A Page usually has a link to it in the menu system. A Page should NOT be used to advertise an upcoming event (see Event paragraph below). Instructions for adding a Page are below.
Post: A Post should be used for an announcement or news item that is relevent now, but probably not 6 months from now. Posts show up on your homepage under Latest News as well as on your Latest News page. For example, if you want to let people know how successful your latest fundraising event was, create a Post. See the Latest News tutorial (COMING SOON).
Event: If you want to advertise an upcoming event, create a new Event. You’ll give your Event a title, description, date, and time. It will show up on your homepage under Events as well as on your Events Calendar page. When the event has passed, it will automatically disappear from the list of events. See the Events Calendar tutorial.
