    Now you can go into the site editor and edit your template parts. Edit your menu in the header template to reflect your pages and the order you want them in. You shouldn't need to do too many edits if you choose the right theme. You can search on in the themes section and choose "full site editing" to get full site editing themes and find one that's closest to what you need so you don't have to do much to make it work.

    I like u/ediblemanager 's idea of using Canvas. There is also a "cool-tool" called Quill which you can use to build a great DOM-friendly editor into your Apps without breaking too much of a sweat. And use Eloquent and park those posts safe and sound into your db.
