Hi,

I'm new here and I'd like to ask for a bit of guidance with separating articles and news in CMSMS. Unsure what's the best practice.

By news I mean entries created by the news module that comes with CMSMS. And this bit actually looks clear to me. However, what's the best approach to add articles which would be separated entities? I can't really use pages for that because I need multiple records per article type.

The site content would be mainly divided into:

- News (example categories: new books, upcoming books, movies, etc.)
- Articles (categories: interviews, reviews, editorials, etc.)
- Pages (homepage, contact, etc.)

Which later becomes this (with mod_rewrite):

http://www.site.com/news/223434/news-title
http://www.site.com/article/23423/article-title

In theory, I could create a 2nd type of categories for the news (1st level: articles, news; 2nd: all the sub-categories) but would still belong to 'news'. Do I need to develop a separate module for that?

Probably easiest to use a separate module, yes. Forking News would be one option, but you could also use CGBlog or LISE, and possibly others.

I'd probably use CGBlog or Lise too. I dont think 'News' has categories whereas CGBlog does

Actually News does have categories including child categories what it doesn't do is allow an article to be in more than one category which is why CGBlog was developed...

Thank you for all the advice. I think I'll try to develop a new module myself. Forking is plan B.

I'd recommend to look at LISE before developing a module yourself unless you're expecting to need very specific functionality or will add hundreds of thousands of items.
