    I am using mistlook 1.0.1 by Sadish, with a banner change (www.speakmoroccan.com).
    Someone has made several changes for me in the beginning, and now I want to get back some of them, and struggling to! :)

    Mainly, my wordpress is meant to be a CMS. I read this: http://green-beast.com/blog/?p=157 and this: http://www.joedolson.com/articles/2007/02/usable-category-navigation-in-wordpress-pages/ but couldn't get a clear idea about how to:
    - Have pages sorted into categories.
    - Have categories list their pages in some drop-down list or possible way. (Like 7 categories in the menu, and each categories with some dozens of pages)

    Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately, Pages do not have categories.

    Here's some other WordPress as CMS examples:

    Too bad, I thought I "understood" that from those articles!
    Any tips about CMS use of wordpress?

    Thanks a lot for your answer.

    Does that mean that you'll have anumber of pages limited that is up to 99 and all their titles will be displayed on the sidebar?
    And where to use the 4th step?

    The 99 refers to the Page Order--'You can specify the order of the pages that the Template Tag called wp_list_pages() displays when the tag is given the argument sort_column=menu_order. You can specify integers from 0 to (almost) any arbitrarily high number.'

    4th step--the template tag, wp_list_pages, is usually placed in the sidebar.php of your theme.

    Thanks again :).
    I was just wondering about pages, because I wouldn't like them to be all listed at once on the sidebar. I suppose I'll have to figure out a better way of doing this.
    Thank you :)

    You'll want to determine 'limiting' parameter, such as include or exclude, to use in the template tag, wp_list_pages.

    I actually want my articles to be sorted in categories.
    So I'll give up the pages, and use posts. One post pages will probably do the thing.

    Is it possible to create sub-categories with WP?
