I am an experienced Drupal developer who is just getting stuck into Wordpress.
For a selected number of pages on a new wordpress build, I need to add them into a category, then add this category block to a page that shows the different categories (selecting them will act as a filter).
In drupal this would involve create a custom content type, a taxonomy and a views block etc.
How can the same be achieved in wordpress?
I know that I can create a sidebar and drop a widget into it. But I am struggling to workout how to create the block to drop into there and categorize these pages.
