Too many options?

I was just reading some RSS feeds that I am subscripbed too and this caught my eye.

This is very true in ASP.NET there are so many options that you can have a hard time decideing what you want to do. In the case of the post do you use several user controls on a single page or several pages?

Another question is do you use a DataGrid, DataList, or a repeater?
While the answer would be easy to see by a developer that is use to ASP.NET it is not to a newb like me.

Take something I want to do for example, which I still can't seem to figure out how to do. I want to make a category table in a database, and a links table in a database where each link is categorized by the category table. In my code I want it to be completely dynamic. Basically it grabs all the categories out of the categories table, and all the links out of the links table. Once they are retrieved they are displayed under each categories title like:

ASP.NET
http://asp.net
http://beta.asp.net

Search Engines
http://www.msn.com
http://www.google.com
http://www.hotbot.com

That is how I want it displayed, but I don't want to hard code anything. In a way like a CMS (Content Managment System).

This is definatly a problem that I see with ASP.NET. Once I learn more in ASP.NET I am going to try to write up articles on how to decide between these many features. This is definatly where the power is in ASP.NET. When you can use the all these features in your development process then you can create awesome websites.

Again this is a good reason for a grok site for ASP.NET.

Any Ideas?
