I'm trying to wrap my head around whether I would use a page vs post in which to build a 1) PHP-powered form or 2) a basic "about us" page or 3) any kind of generic content/functional page.
Here's the problem (if I understand this): If my header.php nav menu is effectively tracking what section (category) and page (post/page) the user is currently viewing (with button state or whatever), and if WP "pages" can't be associated with categories, then does that mean I can ONLY use "post" type pages for all content, forms, and other functional pages that must "live inside" each category?
Everything on the site is a blog post even if it never changes and is intended to do something informational/functional?? I don't know if I understand this.
I just want predictable, trackable url structures that I can refer to from anywhere! Like:
Or am I thinking about this all wrong?
