What is the difference between a page and post?

The Crouch End & District U3A website consists of a series of pages and posts. What is the difference between the two?

Pages contain permanent data which is edited occaionally. Examples of pages are the group pages which describe the nature of the group, general details about the location and frequency of activities, and convener.

Think of them as pages in a book

Posts (found under the heading NEW MESSAGES) contain information that may only be relevant for a short time, and are deleted when no longer of any currency. Examples of posts include updates from groups, new group alerts, and so on. The posts are added very frequently, and provide the most up-to-date information about the activities of the Crouch End & District U3A

Think of them as digital “post-it” notes

Members are able to comment on posts, but not pages.  These comments made by members do not appear on the web-site until such contributions have been moderated.
