Data structure, what is the best practise?
I’m very new to WordPress and have spent the evening reading through the (really great) documentation and nosing around some free themes to see how the pro’s do things.
I want to have a static front page with several separate sections (About/Contact/Costs/Aims) as well as three spotlight post excepts. Plus a category page and a single article page for the posts. The website is for a friend so I wont be supplying the content (so ease of use is important)
So two questions
1 – The about/contact/costs/aims sections on the main page, is it better/easier to create a category for each of these items and the content be a single post within these categories and thusly show up where I specify posts from this category, OR is it better to create theme options for my design in which the user add’s this info?
2 – For the 3 spotlight article excerpts, if you were me, would you create a spotlight category in which the top 3 article excerpts appear in place, OR would you use the confusing seeming sticky function?
The documentation is great so I can probably figure out how to do it, but I would benefit greatly from your experience on choosing the best way in which to do it!
Thank you in advance 🙂
