I'd like to use WP as a CMS for a site. I've played around with it for a couple of days now and it seems to be perfect. The only confusion is creating the navigation. I'd like to have pages and categories in the navigation, mixed. Most of the pages would be static (with sub pages), but there would be some "bloggish" content as well.
The other problem is that I'd like to have the 1st level navigation horizontally on top and the next levels vertically. Once I click a second level item it'd open up the third level, etc. It's a common practice, but see this image for clarity: http://janit.iki.fi/temp/prot.gif
I already created a hack that loaded the page structure in to an array, which I then unfolded using some PHP scripting. I suppose I could hack in the categories as well, but it all ends up being a bit... complicated :)
Would you have any other ideas on how to get this to work? Would it be ok to create pages for the "bloggish" content and then assign custom templates to them (listing the articles in the category)?
