Unfortunately I do not know enough about Zope yet to know what the best
approach is to solving my problem, so please let me know if you have any
suggestions or have done something similar before.

I am trying to build a "tips" site and am trying to decide on how to store
the tips. The options I can think of are database, XML documents (stored
within Zope), or my own custom Zope object type or product. I've read a
little about XML documents in Zope, but I know nothing about creating my own
object types or products. Can anyone give me some advantages (and
disadvantages) of the latter approach? Perhaps there is already a product
for something similar. Squishdot is slight overkill for what I'm looking
for, although I would eventually like to attach discussion threads to each
tip, so maybe it is not.

This is the information that would need to be stored for each tip
(hypothetically) :

Tip title
Tip text
Author (email, etc...)
Date submitted
Date approved (if we allow users to submit tips)
Number of hits (so we can have a "10 most popular", etc...)
Image link 

...and more may be added as time goes on.

Any thoughts?
