This question is in relation to using Categories and Tags as linkable pages, not just meta info supporting supposed articles/events. I know Kirby3 was just released and it is amazing as I hadn’t used Kirby since v1, so I’m brushing up on my knowledge of how the system works. While grokkiing the Tags and Authors Cookbooks, I stopped for a minute with a genuinely curious question.
I know that one of the main benefits of having a DB-less site means that everything is transportable, as I understand it, but I’m curious to hear from people about the benefits/problems of using Tags and Categories that are hardcoded site content (that have actual
site.com/tags/travel/)pages instead of page entry attributes (that only live in the
article.txt file of a page and are only available via the hyphenated
/content/ structure of any site were to be truly portable, wouldn’t this directory include all content of the site? Again, many sites don’t have linked Tags on their site, but unlinked Tags seem like a near useless gesture.
I’m asking this mostly to get more information about using the Panel in Kirby3 to do what I and my clients want, without hampering future transportability of the content (but I broadly understand the problem of flexibility vs simplicity: As soon as you make it more portable, it makes it harder to maintain with a Panel style tool).
