I re-ask a q'n which I asked earlier. I really need your advice on this! A
sort of tutorial which can become handy one day.

Assume a company wants to create a small knowledge-base. The knowledge base
will contain items which contain : the name of the contributor, email
address, topic, title and comments.

The knowledge base should be searchable, viewable in a hierarchy tree. Users
should be able to add and delete, change items, preferable through a html
menu :  ie. a searched or selected item can be deleted or changed. If a user
wants to add an item, he should be able to select in which topic he want to
place the item or he can create a new topic. (to a newly added topic the
user can say under which topic it has to reside)

Can somebody tell me how I would start on this? Is creating a ZClass for the
items a good idea? Or should a use a SQL-database to store the items in?

How would you handle the other problem (ie. managing the knowledge tree
trough a html menu, not Zope itself). Is it possible to delete, change, add
an object to Zope with a certain link?

Martijn, can you give some hints (examples?) how you would do this through
