WordPress Programming Question (1 post)

    I have geography pages for two types of business listings. Each page goes from state, county, city, but I need to have the same geography shared between two types of business.

    My two business types are dentist and chiropractors.

    I am trying to have a permalink structure like this:

    xyz.com/dentist/alabama
    xyz.com/dentist/alabama/polk-county/
    xyz.com/chiropractors/alabama/
    xyz.com/chiropractors/alabama/polk-county/

    I originally was going to load the geography as pages and subpages, but with that method I cannot get the permalink separated by the type chiropractor and dentist.

    So now I have created a custom post type one for chiropractor and one for dentist which give me the permalink xyz.com/dentist and xyz.com/chiropractor.

    My question is now how to handle my category geography page. I was wondering if in wordpress it is possible to create a shell page such as xyz.com/dentist/[state]/ and then through php dynamically build a page for each state? So where it shows [state] it will be replaced with the actual state such as alabama, california etc when that specific page is viewed. But the shell page is just 1 page in the database.

    If so could someone give me a basic explanation on how to instruct a programmer to do this?

    Thank you.
