[wp-hackers] Assigning Pages to Categories

Not claiming that I am a standard WP user, or "most people", but I use 
page categories! Since my website is now totally integrated with WP, it 
shows menus that go to static page content, then with relevant posts 
underneath - this is done via the page-category-organiser plugin 
(modified a bit I admit) and tweaks to template pages to do this - it 
works well!

I think this is useful as it allows Wordpress functionality (multiple 
admin/editors, and a login for "Club members only" menu pages and 
content, etc etc), whilst presenting as a "standard" web site rather 
than a pure blog.
the site is for a sailing club in the UK , and is at  
http://www.budworthsc.org.uk if you want to have a look - hopefully the 
above will then make sense!

Best Regards
P.S. So not keen to change the whole design to WP 2.3 when it comes out!
