I've recently been redesigning a site for a college radio, switching from Drupal to Wordpress from scratch. The site is based on the radio station, but each specialty show will also have its own blog. However, I want the layout to be the same from the main content to each blog. Categories more or less work, but things get tricky when I want information pages for the blogs, such as an 'About' and whatnot. Say I have a "Live" show. I'd want everything to be /live/page or /live/2011/06/post-title, but Wordpress only wants to do posts, and I haven't really found any solid permalink plugins. Should I stick to using categories? How can I improve the situation? Or is multisite a better option? Can I easily set things globally for multisites, like the layout and menu?
