Hi guys am a complete Noob to Processwire and i have spent the past two weeks reading codes and understanding the structure and concept around it. So i am the type of dev who obesseses about architecture structure before getting to work, and i think my mind is broken due to my limited knowledge on PW. So i will expain my goal. I intend to rebuild http://styljunki.com from Wordpress to Processwire because of two reasons. 1. PW has no templating system meaning no hacks like shortcode or mundane template conventions. 2. Modules dependency meaning i can leverage on existing modules (easily) e.g wire('moduleName')->method this really appeals to me alot However there are certain tasks i want to achieve. Concept of Blog vs Pages There are some contents which are Post and some which are pages, is there some such dinstinction in PW, I know PW manipulates pages and adds fields but what of Blogs which just take entry and nothing special, I tried my hands on the Blog Module on PW 2.5.8 but it threw some errors. Menu Management My Client intends to manage menus and from what i have seen ; PW lists all the pages, we were looking for something where we can simply create menus for the front page and we simply pick those. But if there's a module around I am willing to use/ contribute code if it is neccessary. Custom Post In Wordpress you can create a custom post and query that, is there any similar thing to that ? Unit testing PHPUnit Testing in WordPress was a big joke, is there any link to unit test processwire while we work Thanks this are my questions NOTE: Also i'd really like to say congrats because, I have spent the 4 years of my life developing with CMS from Joomla,WordPress,ImpressPages and really this is the first time i am really excited about a CMS. Working with WordPress as a CMS is a pain in the ass, esp for someone used to MVC frameworks like Zend and Yii. I have searched and searched till i came across your site on CMSCritic and Joss Salinger 's post the rocker blogger (rock on) on how easily he could use it despite no coding experience. I intend to contribute in my way. Keep up the good work guys. Love from Nigeria
