Difference between static pages and post pages.

Static pages have some different properties you should be aware of, when deciding what content would be appropriate for a static page, as I mentioned in my previous post.
Before creating one, you should also know the differences between a static page and a post page. Here are some of the differences:

Static pages

- are not archived;
- don't show up in feeds;
- don't have time stamp, no post footer at all;
- you don't apply labels to static pages;
- are not to be seen on followers reading list;
- have their own Edit pages panel;
- you can display them or just keep them hidden from visitors eyes (e.g. a list of all pages) and use the URL where needed.
- with some extra work it is possible to customize a static page (stand alone page) by hiding other elements like sidebar, footer and even heather(see the screenshot bellow).
This is useful, for example to create photo galleries, about page, contact page and link to them from a menu button or any other link.

How do you recognize a static page by its url?

Static pages have this extra /p/ in their url, instead of the date, like so:

static page - http://yourblog.blogspot.com/p/galleries.html
post page - http://yourblog.blogspot.com/2010/05/galleries.html

Move your cursor over my gallery in the main navigation and see it's url in the status bar, at the bottom-left corner of your monitor.
