I am planning to make a large content based website (let us say 500 pages in the first month with continuous additions). I tried using WP, it was easy and convenient, then could not figure out a way to manage my categories well. I then checked out a couple of other CMS, and now I am thinking of using WP again. One knows the value when one has something to compare to.
Now, here is my problem.
Suppose, I want to make a website for lyrics of English songs. So, I need categories for that. But I dont want categories just to put a label on the song title. I want to have a separare page for category and separate pages for sub-categories.
1.1)Lyrics (category, separate page)
1.1.1) Alphabetical Listing (sub-category, separate page)
1.1.2) Listing by Artists (sub-category, separate page)
1.1.3) Listing by Genre (sub-category, separate page)
22.214.171.124) Lyrics 1 (actual lyrics, post or page??)
126.96.36.199) Lyrics 2 (actual lyrics, post or page??)
and so on.
What I did before on WP was to use a separate page for each category and sub-category and even the actual lyrics i.e. there were not to be any posts in my site, just WP Pages.
I was wondering if this is a good solution. Should I then do away with the category system and make a hierarchy by using Pages only? Would it cause some problems in future e.g. slow loading of site etc. ?
Also, can I use comments on Pages?
Please offer some suggestions.
Thanks a lot,
