Building a discography using custom post types and taxonomies
I’m working on building out a website in WP 3.0 and I’m faced with creating a fairly extensive discography section.
I’ve been searching online for a good discography plugin or solution and the only thing I’ve found is the ‘Discography’ plugin which doesn’t seem to be there yet.
So I’m thinking about doing it all with custom post types and taxonomies, and trying to wrap my head around the best way to set it all up.
The road that I’m currently going down is to use categories for the artist/project along with a new Custom Post Type called “Works” which is basically a generic work/release/artistic product, with the following associated taxonomies:
Formats: CD, LP, EP, Single, etc.
Releases: Albums, Compilations, DVDs & Videos, Singles & LPs, Other, etc.
Does this make sense? Is this a good way to do this within the bounds of WordPress
3.0 without too much custom development?
Is anyone else working on something similar?
