Setup Question with Categories (eg /about, /info) (2 posts)

    Hi, I'm not sure if this has been brought up before, but I'm trying to set up a website that features the works of some artists in different categories and sub-categories. I was initially trying to get the site managed with TXP (Textpattern), except it's not as ready and customizable (and just plain better) than WordPress is.
    With that said, I'm trying to figure out, is there a way to set up categories so that I could get the listing of articles for a section like (with http://www.plainculture.com before the mentioned, obviously) "/about", "/art", and so on, along with sub-categories like "/art/photography" and "/art/paintings" and so on? And how could this be set up from .htaccess for the rewriting aspect? Any help, or even ideas (in addition to), on this I'd definitely appreciate. Initial prototype of what I'm working on is at http://www.plainculture.com/beta (links don't work). Thanks. :)

    You can have categories like
    /archives/category/about
    and so forth, and the rewrite rules for .htaccess are generated by wordpress at options->permalinks (after you login, of course)
    Experiment with that and find a structure of links that pleases you.
