I am somewhat new to WordPress and I have been asked to create a website where I could manage a blog page for quite a number of dental related professionals that live in Florida. The basic idea is this:

1. A website for news, new techniques, etc. related to dentistry

2. Many dental related professionals could have a blog page related to their specialty. Page would link back to their main website (the blog area on this site is for SEO enhancement).

Looking for ideas on how to best layout the structure for the blogs since there may be 100s of individuals wanting to have a post. Would need it to have a logical layout (i.e. City, Specialty, Dental Pro's Name).

Either the dental pro could email me the info and I would post or could I set them up as a user where they could post. Looking for input on which would be the best way for this as well.

Is there a plugin that can "dress up" the categories and support many various pros and thier specialties?

Thanks!

Hi,

you should look at setting up author pages, so that each author has its own stream of blog posts. You can use categories or tags to further categorize the posts, and create additional views.

Note that you can also post to WordPress by e-mail (to bypass the step of someone mailing you and writing a post),
