I'm just planning ahead for a project and was hoping for a second opinion.
I'm going to be making a site that will have about 7 different types of entry - all of which have different fields/URL's; however on the front-end they will all behave as if they are part of one channel. I will have a single page that lists all of the entries and I will also be giving end-users the ability to perform searches/filtering.
For the sake of easy dashboard management I have currently set them up as separate sections instead of one section with multiple entry types (because using individual sections gives me a nice separated 'Entries' page in the dashboard - it's hard to sort/view by entry type at the moment).
Question: Seeing as I can get the site to work the same regardless of which method I use, is there a dramatic difference between pulling out entries from multiple sections VS pulling out entries from one?
For this example lets just say we are dealing with around 100,000 entries total.
