I am new to Craft and read a lot of arctilces and most of the docs. Most parts are quite easy. Now I plan how to organize all the different parts and pages.
Below is a simple outline. Not every page, but to get the ieda.
Home (Single) - News (Section; structure: news) - Posts (news entry with category post?) - Press (news entry with category press?) - Media … - Events … - About (Section; structure: pages) - About us (pages entry with defult entry type) - History (pages entry with defult entry type) - Team (pages entry with defult entry type) - People - Locations (Section; channel: location) - Page-A, Page-B, etc… (? other entry types) - Members (Section; structure: pages) - Info (pages entry with defult entry type) - Jobs (?) - Listing (pages entry with defult entry type) - Register/Login (?) - (PROTECTED MEMBERS AREA) (?) - Auth-Group-I - Page A, Page B, … - Auth-Group-II - Page-A, Page-B, …
First: There are 4 different "sections" (in terms of the content and audience). Would it be possible/a good idea to put alle those into one Craft section, titled pages? And on those pages, where I need other content, like locations (store locator), I pull data from a dedicated section titled locations. Or on another I query the job listings. That way I can group most pages, create the hierachy and spearate the content in logical groups/sections.
Second: Otherwise, would it be better to give each website section its own Craft section.
Third: What about those "special pages" like my register/login form, the job lsiting page, etc. Do they become a Single?
Fourth: What is more appropriate for my different news pages: using categories or entry types?
