Pages are one side of a sheet of paper in a collection of sheets bound together. They are known as a book, magazine, or newspaper. Pages are also very similar to Posts. They have Titles and Content and can use the WordPress. Pages have different key distinctions which make them quite different from the Posts. Pages can be organized into pages and subpages. Pages are for non-blog content.

In the page of the newspaper, the graphical considerations include read ability, balanced, unobtrusive incorporation of advertising. The main editorial goals include the ordering of the news stories and its importance. The newspaper may be really dull and uninteresting, if the each page of the newspaper is a solid mass of small type, with only a cut-off rule by the stories. Most of the stories would be 'buried' on each page, and the readers will find nothing interesting in the world. The newspaper of 19th century were often densely packed and arranged vertically, with multiple headlines for each. The number of the same technological limitations persisted until the digital typesetting and pagination in the late 20th century.
