Suggests - Volunteering on dogs adoption site (6 posts)

    I'm studying about themes for a theme system specially for animals adoptions.

    I have doubts when use Categories, Tags or Post types:

    E.g.:
    Post-title : every post are titled after animal name.
    Category: Animal type (dog, cat etc)
    Status: for adoption/adopted
    Post-body: text, pitures etc
    Custom-taxonomies: size, color, etc

    Don´t know if should use 2 categories for status like adoption and adopted. So within this it should also keep the same animal types (sub-categories) too. Read somewhere is not good to set 2 categories in posts (e.g: adopted and dogs), but I wonder why that is possible then?!

    Post-types seems nice, but don´t know if has some use here.

    Thanks for any help!

    See the Multiple Category Selection Widget plugin. It can be a great help in searching through posts having multiple categories.

    For example, you could have this category structure:

    Animal
       Dog
       Cat
       Bird
    Status
       Adopted
       Available
    Size
       Not Applicable
       Small
       Medium
       Large
    Color
       Not Applicable
       Brown
       Black
       Multi-colored

    Using this plugin would make it easy for a viewer to search for a Cat, Available, Small, Brown.

    Any of those can be made to work. In my opinion, using categories with this plugin is quite easy.

    But, without a complete analysis of all the things you want to do on your site, it is not possible to say which is the best way.

    I am also building a dog adoption web site. Wondering waht plugin to use to allow the public to list a dog for adoption. I saw the Business Directory plugin might work, but it does not allow image files. Maybe a classified ads web site plugin might work? Any recommendations?

    I think it's just like commerce system without tag price included. Take a sneak shot for getshopped.org plugin 'WP-e-Commerce'. Beware of falling in love with this plugin will ya :D
