Display info blocks depending on the category (5 posts)

    Not sure if I've worded the title of this correctly or not, so please excuse me if you don't follow.

    I'm putting together a blog that contains write-ups from football [soccer to you Americans among us] matches attended by a group of friends in the UK and acros europe. As I want this to be a blog that carries on over multiple seasons, there will be occasions where I have more than 1 post per category [My categories are based on the team name, for example, Everton].

    So, each time I write a post in the category 'Everton' I want a fact-file to appear beneath the post with info on the stadium, ticket prices, directions to the ground etc. Make sense?


    Now, for the life of me, I can't think how to do this? Are there any plugins that will handle this type of stuff? Or, what would I search for in order to find a solution? I can't put my finger on what to look for.

    Thanks guys!

    That seems pretty simple and straight forward to do.

    However, I think setting up a child category for each parent category might be easier? Then, populate a post with the appropriate content then pull in the child post beneath the parent?

    Any thoughts on that?

    I don't have any thoughts about child categories, but I did just think that what you want is a lot like the CrunchBase items that are integrated into the bottom of TechCrunch posts. Here's an example post that discusses Stripe. Stripe is a company that has some CrunchBase content, so there is a footer on the post that shows some of that: http://techcrunch.com/2012/09/11/stripe-introduces-customizable-billing-interval-volume-purchase-and-invoice-flexibility/

    Now, TechCrunch has recently relaunched the site, and this plugin is a few years old, but you might find something useful inside to adapt to your site: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/crunchbase-widget/

    That's very similar to what I want.

    After some searching, it seems that I'm after something similar to an 'About the Author' but for categories.

    Any idea if these exist? I'm going grey sitting here! ha.
