    It has been an amazing journey discovering WP. Thanks.

    I was wondering about the difference between categories and pages. I'm sure there are, but would be delighted to be enlightened.

    Can we use WP pages for some kind of Forum or Directory? Are there Plugins available for Forums and Directories in WP?

    Pages are explained here. Categories are multi-functional but generally, I use them only for posts. They are useful if you have multiple feeds or want to display category specific posts differently using category specific templates.

    Regarding forums, I wouldn't use WordPress for a discussion board. That's a project by itself.
