    Hi there I am currently trying to establish how best to build a website that needs a few sections of it driven by a CMS. Therefore I have the following aquestions about WordPress.

    1. Can I have multiple sections - ie vegetables / fruit / meat / dairy?
    2. Can these multiple sections exist on their own pages in admin and on the web?
    3. Can I desigh a web site and incorporate word press into it where I see fit?
    4. Can I use wordpress to desig a web site should not be able to do question 3.
    5. Can I split a page into latest entries and archived entries - so say at the top of the page I would show my top 10 latest entries and then down the right hand side a list of the historical archive.
    6. Would I be beter looking a a CMS system like Joomla?

    Thanks,

    Alan.

    1. yes
    2. yes
    3. yes
    4. dont understand the question
    5. yes
    6. thats up to you, ask the joomla folks.

    All of the yes's are predicated on the caveat that you are using the word page in the standard web way, NOT the wordpress way. A page to wordpress is an actual "managed" page. Its not just a generic page, as in a "web page".

    Pages and posts <-- terms that are not the same to wordpress

    Alan, I can't say "no" to any of your questions. WordPress seems moldable to many uses if you are willing to delve into its architecture and do a little hacking. There are so many plugins written it would be almost impossible to say "WordPress can't..."

    What you are describing seems to me it can fit into WordPress, but I don't know Joomla. I suggest you google "wordpress as CMS" or similar and see what others have said on tht topic. I'm about to do the same...

    I wouldn't necessarily consider having to hack core files and use 100 plugins to make your site sing is worthy of saying its the greatest, if you have to hack it and use so many plugins then its a safe bet that you need something more robust like a real CMS system

    just my 2 cents :)

    that's like saying sure you can fly to the moon, that is if you got a rocket and enough $$$ to pay for the fuel - anything is doable

    truth be told wordpress is very limited - its a blogging software nothing more, sure you can make it sing if you want to take an axe and hack the files and search for 100's of plugins (pray they work) best of luck to ya
