1. Wondering if its possible to use the Magento product system for things other than products. For example, a client of mine would like a ‘publicity’ page where they have a list of publicity articles. Each article consists of an image (magazine scan), a publication title, and the publication date.
So when it comes to adding a publicity ‘product’ they’d just add an image/title/date and set it to display under the ‘publicity’ category.
2. Is it possible to define a category that gathers up all of the items that have a sale price? ie, so if an image is marked down in price it shows up in its own category, but it also is displayed in an ‘on sale’ category with all the other items that are marked down.
