I am still very much a newbie to WordPress so please forgive me if the answer to this is blindingly obvious.
I'm developing a site that will contain both "site" content which is written by subject matter experts in the site's niche. The site will also be using buddypress to let end users, non-SMEs login and make posts as well.
On the home page of the site, I'd like a posts page that shows only the content written by the site SMES. This is what I'd call "the site feed". Then someplace else on the site, I'd like to have a posts page which contains all the end-user, non-SME content, which I'd call "the member feed".
My original plan had been to have a set of categories and restrict members to a certain subset of the categories reserved for them. But a) the more I read about categories the more I wonder if that's the right thing to do and b) even if it is, I don't know how to allow members to use only a certain subset of the categories. So now I'm thinking there's probably a better way to approach this.
