@msh210 categories and post types are orthogonal. We can create a Purim Torah category that supports both Q&A and articles. (The "create post" page has a selector for post type in that case.)

What types of posts are available to us? The list will be helpful when trying to decide what types of posts we should actually have.

Currently there are two top-level post types, Question and Article. Questions can have answers; articles cannot. Questions, articles, and answers all accept comments and can be voted on.

You can see examples of articles on Cooking's Recipes category and on the Meta Blog.

No live site is doing this yet, but a category can support more than one type of top-level post -- for now, that means questions and articles. (There might be more post types in the future, which is why I'm writing it this way.) When a category supports more than one type of top-level post, the "create post" page adds a selector for the type of post.

(Technically, help topics are also posts, but that's not relevant for setting up categories.)

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
