Suggestions: Multiple collections or single collection approach?
Little bit rusty, just wondering the best way to approach a particular idea in an upcoming project. I am using runway.
I have a section called Journal which will contain both news articles and stories which will be laid out in chronological order but styled differently depending on whether its an article or story.
The news article will contain standard article fields and use an article specific template. The stories will contain fields like story, author image, author name and use a story specific template.
I'm not sure whether it would best to use two separate collections, one to hold articles and one to hold stories and if possible use a call on the journal page to display the items from each mixed together in chronological order?
Use one collection to hold both articles and stories and if possible select the template to be used when creating a new item and use categories to differentiate between article or story? Although I'm not sure collections has the ability to select template like the blog app does.
Use the blog app and use two post types or setup multiple blogs to create a set of articles and stories.
Choices, choices - any suggestions would be appreciated.
