Use category pages instead of WordPress Page?
I’m new to WordPress, use Drupal primarily, but for a smaller site, looking into WordPress, am comforable with PHP etc.
The Pages (with capital P) I created work fine in WordPress, except I found that the Page content is not listed in the results page – WordPress search only searches posts, it seems.
Then I discovered that one can create category template pages, and that got me another option instead of Pages – I could just create new categories for the Pages I need, and then instead of a Page, I just use a URL that lists all posts in that particular category. Template files allow me to make this look the way I need.
And I get search capability.
Any one have any other differences/issues with above?
My Pages are simple, I can easily simulate them with posts, so above would work.
Of course, it seems it is easier to manage Pages – such as use wp_list_pages to automatically create a list of URLs to my pages. If I use categories, each time I add a category I need to edit the template files to include/exclude the category in various places.
