I'm in the process of putting together my first WordPress site. I have experience using the Plone and dotCMS content management systems, and I'm having a little trouble figuring out the WP way of doing things. Please forgive me if I get the terminology wrong, I'm just starting out. Any help will be appreciated!
I'm working on a simple site for a local community arts commission. The main landing page will be an introduction to the commission and recent news. In addition there will be a few other top-level pages for news, 'about us', sitemap, etc. I think I know how to do all of this.
In addition to the main organization's content I want to have sections on the site for the major events that the commission puts on. So I'll have a landing page for:
- Art Festival
- Film Festival
- Theater Camp
Each section will have a set of related pages - history, rules, contacts, registration docs and similar content. I'd like these sections to have a news page and sidebar widget that only shows posts related to the section they're in. I'm having trouble figuring out how to organize this content into sections.
What's the best way to go about this in WordPress? I'm looking at multisite, but that feels like a pretty big hammer for a site that will be a total of 20 pages - plus I'd like all blog postings to appear on the main news page.
