POST is for blog POST and PAGE is for different PAGES, for example, if you were setting up a portfolio website and you knew off hand you wanted 5 different pages. you would create a

  1. Home [ page ]
  2. About [ page ]
  3. Portfolio [ page ]
  4. Blog [ page ]
  5. Contact [ page ]

for each page you could add content to them. the blog page however when you create it, you have to make sure to link your blog post to display on that page, so typical when you make a blog PAGE you can leave it blank, then later on connect your POST to display on that page.

one cool feature with wordpress is, your home page can be setup to be your POST page,

todo all this:

if you go to settings > reading: you should see an option that says front page display, there you can change from having a static front page or have your front page display your latest POST in the body(content) section of the website. typicaly most people choose a static page, because it then gives you the option to choose which page you want to set as your front page and which page to setup as your POST page, that is where you link your POST page to your blog PAGE

I hoped that cleared it up a bit for you, if my explanation didn't make sense please tell me, ill try to answer it better.

but with post, we can't define the parent element of the post we created. So that the breadcrumb can't be used in a specific post within a category ??

sorry for the late reply, but you can use breadcrumbs for post. if you setup the blogs to post on the blog page, i believe blog will be your parent. you can either use a plugin such as this:

check out this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/

or you can manually code in the breadcrumb function your self.
