A question about post types before I dive in

Firstly I'd like to say what an impressive looking blog/cms. Other more popular php solutions have always seemed too messy and badly designed but finally I found something with a beautifully simple template system thats full featured with a nicely designed admin area (2.0).

However I am wondering about the following:

With something like Wordpress you can associate tags to a post. This simple feature means that in template code you can take posts with the tag "blog" and list them on the blog page, take posts with the tag "featured" and expect that they have an image which you can showcase on some frontpage js slider, and so on.

Is it possible to do something like this with BE?

Thanks

If you add "tag cloud" widget and click any tag, it will load all posts that have this tag. So you don't have to directly associate tag with a post, it is more like an attribute on the post. You can extend it to have picture and do complex things that is not available out of the box if you want to, using extensions or custom code.
