I have installed wordpress and read *a lot* of documentation on codex. My requirement is as follows
I need to create a personal website (blogging may not be a part of it). What is what is that I can submit content to wordpress and tag each content with a flag (you can say assign a category to it). After doing so I intend to write my own theme such that for each page on my website I can get content based on the category and generate pages (as per my style).
To illustrate the point I need to create a page that list all the projects I had worked on. I would then submit all my project (each as a single unit of information) to the wordpress where the title would be the title of the project and the content would be the description of the project
I would the like to creat a this page dynamically by writing a file projects.php in which I can like to iterate over all the projects and list as per my layout.
I thought one way to do that would be to have individual post for each project each tag with a category "project". That way by clicking on the indvidual category I can list all my projects. But I don't know how this would work if I want to keep the page password protected.
Is there a better way of doing this using pages. Moreover in page.php file I see "The Loop" but does it ever go beyond the first iteration.
