I am working on a new site where I want to show information for art galleries, artists, museums, public art installations and art education.
I understand both the content type and profile differences but can't decide which is better in the long run. I know the artists will need a profile and I would like to give the rest of the "types" the ability to edit their own content if they desire.
I have done a lot of research and can't seem to find an answer on how to link a content type entry with a user profile and am leaning toward profiles for everybody. However, this has drawbacks because of need for authentication info (which I don't know) as I create the profile.
Am I missing a magic module or some other clue?
