The recent updates to categories have been great and provide a lot of flexibility. But now I find myself struggling to decide what should be a category group and what should be a structure.
For example we are working on a site where a lot of the content will be segmented by city. Originally I had just assumed that cities would be a entry section but now feeling like categories make more sense semantically?
So my question is what are the functional differences between categories and structures? As far as I can tell they are:
- The category fieldtype does not let you reorder the selected categories, the way you can with related entries field. They always stay in the category groups order
- Categories don't have a post date or expiration date
- Categories don't have authors
- Categories don't have versioning
Are there any other important differences I should consider? It seems like the only advantages are that they get their own tab, and that the ordering is consistant across all related entries
