There are two primary types of pages in Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. They are site pages and application pages.
- Application and site pages both inherit their layout from the same master page.
- Site pages are pages that are created, edited, and customized by end users. They are primarily used for the content in a site.
A standard page contains text, images, Web Parts, and other elements.
In simpler terms, a page contains, web parts, content, and information. For example, a Home Page can contain web parts like Announcements and Links. These web parts contain frames, content, and information. Lists bring you to other views that are essentially pages.
