I have WordPress 1.3 alpha-5 installed ....
I've been doing a lot of reading and have only come across bits and pieces regarding the use of the "page.php" feature - but sometimes I think my mind has retired at times as well because I'm having some difficulty grasping the whole concept regarding the need or use of pages.
As I understand, pages are new to version 1.3 - can someone explain the purpose of using pages vs writing posts ? - what are the differences between the two? - are they kind of similar to each other or totally different from each other ?
What would a person use pages for - a few examples would be nice - and how does a page integrate itself into the blog as a whole - what is it's relationship or it's reason for being ?
