Use categories for automatic article tagging.
Use portals to present your topic.
Use templates for easy writing and unified look and feel.

sorry if tghis is not exactly the good thread, But I couldn't think of
a better title :-(

You are right, not the good tread, we are trying to work here with
practical things. If you'd wish to continue this discussion open a new
thread for this: Complaints

Greetings, Tim
