i am going to use wp for my first time (worked a bit with textpattern before) and have to set up a given design with it.
its a personal site with things like a gallery, download section, linklist, 2-3 blogstyle sub-pages and so on.
so my very first question is: how do i organize this best?
i have a given navigation with this design, so i have use a sidebar menu which is not divided in different things like pages and categories.
imagine a list like this, which represents the sidebars menu:
- Special Pictures 1
- Blogstyle Category 1
- Blogstyle Category 2
this i have to set up.
so, well, this wouldnt be hard to create with just using direct links manually. but theres a given order to make it possible to the owner to easily add new pages/categories. so i have to use a loop to create this sub menu. but i have no idea how to solve this halfway elegant.
i tried to set it up with just using Pages, but this wont work, since a page does not contain an option to list posts of a given category, does it?
well... maybe someone could answer this first, so i can think farther and ask the next few questions ;-)
