    I am a new-by to BlogEnging. My school's newspaper is going with this software for its online edition. I am heading the design of the site and am running into a few questions on the design of the CMS. The best plan I could think of is: Having the editors upload the stories the typical way posts are added. There are pages I created called FrontPage, Entertainment, Sports, etc. When they add a story they would tag the story with the correct page(s) names it should be displayed on. On the individual pages, I would write JavaScript to look through the XML files of the posts and display only the ones that correspond to that page. From any of the experienced BlogEngine users, does this sound like  a good plan? Is there a better way? From a coder's aspect, this seems as though it may take a while for the pages to load. If this happens when I test this idea out, I would implement some intermediate steps to speed things up. But that would be in the future. Thanks in advance for your help!
