I am using a custom theme for my website. We roast/package coffee. I have, let's say six (6) categories that I want to establish, but I want an image to appear so that when I click on the picture, it takes me to the sub-categories. So, to illustrate, I want to go from a category called 1lb. Coffee Offerings, which will bring me to four (4) sub-categories which are named Central American, South American, Asia/Indonesia, and Africa. Once I get here, I want to be able to click on one of the four (4) images, which will bring me to the types of coffee per geographical location.
The issue I'm having w/WP is that categories don't really mean categories (for my situation) as one cannot load any images into a category.
If anyone can shoot me a response, that would be so awesome. I am not sure if I need to create custom taxonomies, etc. Thanks, Kevin
