Wordpress--Page or Post

So when I have articles to post to my website--do I put that article on a post, or a page? I've been putting them in Posts, in specific categories. What is the general process?

Posts are for timed content that need additional taxonomy (categories/tags).  So anything like news, articles, blogs, etc. should use Posts.

Pages are untimed, presumably unchanging content.  Think "About Us", "Contact Us", and other descriptions/calls to action that don't expect to change much over a given period of time.

Posts will appear in your blog listing, as articles or entries. Pages host the content on your website and can consist of all your posts or other content of your choosing.

Hope this helps! :)

If you go to Appearance>Customise
Wordpress themes customize

You can then select the front page as a page you have created, or to be your blog posts.
wordpress front page
If you choose 'Your latest posts' then your front page will display everything. If you do not want a blog in this way, it is better to create a page, named blog for example.

You can then install this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/posts-in-page/
and add [ic_add_posts] (including square brackets) to add all posts to that page.

See https://wordpress.org/plugins/posts-in-page/installation/ for more shortcodes and to specify posts that appear (shortcodes are the bits in brackets)

Please note: I am not the creator of the WP plugin, but I have used it before on several projects.
