Categories with Multiple Parents (1 post)

    I'm trying to setup structure for a review site. I know how to create categories, sub categories and tags and how to build nested menus that show the content at different levels of the category hierarchy. I also know that technically, a category cannot have more than one parent!

    However, this is what I'm trying to do.

    Reviews are of two types of places - say Hotels and Pub and are split by region.

    So the types apply to all or at least quite a few of the regions, as follows:

    Reviews
    Hotels
    - Bedford
    - Buckinghamshire
    - Yorkshire
    - etc

    Pubs
    - Bedford
    - Buckinghamshire
    - Yorkshire
    - etc

    One thought is to use two tags or perhaps a custom meta data field for Hotel/ Pub, but the menu structure seems to be based on Categories only.

    Alistair Sawday is a great site and they have managed it with their Areas and then Accommodation type and you can search by either.

    Any pointers would be warmly welcomed.

    Thanks,

    Chris.
