When I first set up wordpress for my walking website http://babyroutes.co.uk , I created a new page for each region and then a new child page for each walk I wrote up, assigning it to a particular region.
This was completely idiotic and went against wordpress' logical structure but I was new to blogging and didn't know better.
I am about to convert all the walk pages to posts via a smart little plugin. I will then properly categorise them, with their parent region becoming a category and the walk features etc. becoming tags. I then aim to use menus to recreate the dropdown list from the navigation bar that you currently see by clicking on 'the walks'.
Only issue is, I like having information for each of the regions (shortly to become categories), yet I can't find a way of creating a category content page when using posts. Basically, I want to keep the look and feel the same on the menu as it is now (i.e. each region has a content page which then links to child posts of each walk) but using posts.
Can anyone help me out?
