I want to use WordPress as a CMS for a reasonably basic site rather than a blog. I have several pages and at the moment, I don't intend to have a "news" page.
While there are ways to make this work, the focus in the wp-admin console is clearly on new posts, and creating pages with custom content like maps and galleries feels like I'm working around the system rather than with it.
Do you have any suggestions as to using WordPress as a CMS?
- Are there any good boilerplate themes that are designed around a CMS rather than a blog?
- Are there any good plugins to help with treating WordPress as a CMS?
Alternatively, should I be using WordPress at all?
