I've been playing around with theme development for a little while now and have been creating a settings page to store information such as social media links, contact details etc ...
However this requires me to have already hard coded the Social Media fields for the settings page.
Ideally I would like to create a Social Media Post type and then the user can add as many to the list as they like, and I just run through a loop of the post type where I want to print the links.
The problem is I don't want this post type to have a Permalink, I don't want people to be able to find a "Facebook" page on the site and all that's on it is a post title. Now I know I could set up a 301 for the custom post type eg: "/socialmedia/" in my htaccess file, but ideally I would just like to remove the Permalink from the post type all together.
I've had a Google around for any tips but not found anything yet, If anyone could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it. =)
I'm pretty competent with WordPress so I'm not asking for a complete solution, a pointer in the right direction or just some suggested functions would probably be enough to get me going =)
Thanks in advanced!
