    Hey, I am working on a 300-400 page authority site. I want to use Wordpress but it confuses me!

    I have it all planned out on paper and I had a HTML version planned but wordpress seems so much easier for updating and expanding.

    As the site stands it will have 17 main Categories and each category has roughly 10 articles. How would I have this set up in wordpress?

    Pages for privacy policy contact etc.. then 17 categories with all the related articles as posts in their respective categories?

    Or dose anyone know where to find some kind of tutorial on how this would be set up?

    Thanks!

    First thing I would do is install WP on your site and play around with it. It is really easy once you get in there and start digging around. Just make sure that the template you choose has plenty of space for all the categories you are wanting. There are tons of "free" templates on BHW.

    Try "Digging Into Wordpress" by Chris Coyer. The new addition has been updated for 3.1 and contains exactly the same content as the original, but instead breaking the spreads into single-page format, the widescreen version retains the same "two-up" layout, so it's just like you're reading the actual printed book.

    This is one of the best WordPress manuals written, in my opinion.

    You outlined it yourself exactly as it should be done. WP really is easy. If you have been doing this size site in HTML, you will be amazed at the time you will save moving to WP. Like Lacy said, just try it. You don't have to use your domain main. Install WP in a subdirectory (folder) under your domain (just to play around with it).

    You obviously have some website experience. It should be easy for you to pick WP up without any problem. Once you get started, you won't look back!
