I am a novice at WordPress but I am very familiar with PHP and programming.
I have a somewhat complex website that I would like to program in WordPress. I have ~40 static pages, ~5 different blog pages, a home page that display some static text and lists the newest posts in each of the different blogs.
My question is what is best practice when it comes to setting up multiple blogs? Should I set up different authors and query by author? Should I set up one author and multiple categories or tags and then query by those categories/tags?
I would like things as simple as possible. Right now on the development website I have everything set up using categories. My worry is that the user might forget to select a category for his post (and then it would never show up).
