Questions after playing

Well, I can see I will have to spend much more time on Frontier, but the
Manila stuff seems pretty straightforward so far. I have a few quick
questions after playing with things a bit.

1.  If my students want to develop a fairly comprehensive site, let's say, a
page for annotated bibliography or journal articles, a page for commented
links, a page for essays by each student, and pages for their development of
the topic, do they have to create a new site for each page? Since each
individual page would not be a blog, so would not be flipped, I imagine
every page in their site would be a new site. Their "main" or home page
would then contain links to each of those other site-pages (as shortcuts)?
Also, does that mean the students have to create a membership group to share
for all those site-pages?

2.  Does each page have to have a login button or link? I deleted the login
in the main site I created, and after loging out, just could not log back

3.  The Manila sites I created all have too funky of an URL. Hence, my
students might end up with an url that looks like:

Am I correct in assuming that such urls will not change unless I run
everything through my University's web server? So that the sites will come
up as:

I'd prefer the last address rather than the first one.
