Wordpress Post vs Page, Best Practices
Posted on 2014-01-18
I'm new to creating WordPress templates, so I apologize if this is a dumb question :)
As an example, I have a template page "About.php" which I've named "AboutUsPage".
So I create a new page called About and it uses "AboutUsPage"
On this page, I need to display 2 user profiles. Each profile contains a Name, Description and Image. So I see 3 ways of accomplishing this, but I'm wondering what the best practice is.
Option 1. Copy my the html verbatim into the html editor for the About, This is fine, but there's html to worry about and I wonder if users editing this page will have to worry about too much.
Option 2. Create a page for each profile, and use a custom field for the image and display both posts on the about page. In this case, I could control where each element goes on the AboutUsPage template.
Option 3. Create a category called About, and 2 posts, 1 for each profile, under that category. List each post in the category on the AboutUsPage template.
So the question is... which option is best? Or am I missing something.
Thank you for your help and opinions!
