I'm wondering what might be the best method to structure a WP site featuring local restaurant reviews. I'm not clear about categories vs tags vs taxonomies. Initially I had it set up with two parent categories like this and just checked one for each post:
+Parent category 'Cities'
+Parent category 'Cuisine'
My goal is to be able to navigate restaurants by city and of course by cuisine type. Is the above the best way to do that? What about searching by cuisine within a city, etc?
Another thing I want to do is to show recent posts on my sidebar with the city in parentheses, like so:
Joe's Diner (Boston)
Happy Tiger (Cambridge)
When I tried to modify the recent posts widget, however, I quickly discovered that unless my city is always category 0 or 1, it wouldn't work consistently.
