Question(s) of the Week

Question: Should I be posting my new podcasts as “Posts or Pages” in WordPress?

Answer: Posts. Pages are for more static content like About pages, welcome pages, pages you use for reference and that kind of thing. Not so much for ongoing dynamic content like podcasts or blog posts. Plus, Pages are never included in the RSS feed. You could (but it’s more complicated) use a Custom post type, but that is too much to go into on a podcast 🙂
