    how to make blog with different sections?

    hi
    i want to have a blog with pages/sections containing posts
    e.g. a blog on webmaster with sections like
    affiliate, tools, blogging etc.. and each having many posts (not like a page with only 1 post)

    please help..


    1. go with categories as navigation
    2. or create pages with loop fetching posts from different categories
    3. or install a new wordpress for each section with same theme
    4. anything else?


    Thanks

    I can't speak on Wordpress since I've never used it, but I do exactly what you described using Joomla. Each link in the menu goes to a different section of the blog. The admin area allows me to create a new post and decide what section it goes in. No need for multiple WP installations this way.

    Oh, hi

    If you want to switch, I found these links:

    Joomla! • View topic - Import WordPress into Joomla 1.5
    How to Import Wordpress Into a Joomla Website | eHow.com

    Though, you might not want to switch since Wordpress is easier and you're already used to it.

    You can eaisily do this with drupal. Drupal doesn't have as many bells and whistles but it is much better than wordpress as a content management system.

    Good point that it doesn't have many bells and whistles unless you load it up with plug-ins. Also, Drupal's taxonomy system for dividing things into different sections is too complex for most blogs. That seems to be the biggest complaint from most people.

    Drupal is more of a content management system like Joomla, but it can be used for blogging if configured that way.

    You are right,drupal is too complicated for a basic user,but the taxonomy system is really advanced i am pretty sure that no other system can compare for example joomla offers only 3 levels if i am not mistaken.
    Section-category-article...thats the way it goes right ?
    Sut with drupal you have a infinite number of possible combinations.
    But i too would agree that for a blog wordpress is the best choice.

    You can use the link system and create a category for the links for each section.

    Add the links to each section and add the links by category to the sidebar.

    If you need to know what I mean you can check out All Wii All the Time which I just setup to test that.

    The accessories and games menus are just 2 different link widgets.

    I'm sure if someone masters the taxonomy system in Drupal, it would be very powerful for them.
