  • I know it is proper etiquette to have searched the forums for the answer to a question first, but I simply cannot think of the key words that would lead me to what I need. Thus, I am posting. My apologies in advance.

    I am trying to set up a website using WordPress (preferably Suffusion theme, but not necessarily). This is a website that will be for a restaurant that specializes in 3 types of food (sushi, teppanyaki, and kushiage). What I would like to have is a standard tabs-across-the top webpage, but each of the non-home pages would be dedicated to a particular type of food: sushi, teppanyaki, and kushiage. I’d also like to have front-of-the-house and design blog tabs as well.

    What I was thinking would be to use something like the WordPress Network to have a blog for each topic. I would add content to each of these on a regular basis. However, I read here that I shouldn’t be using a Network or MU for this sort of thing (which is good, because I am baffled by how to install it!).

    So, my question is: how do I set this sort of thing up? How do I make tabs that lead to different blog content: sushi blog, teppanyaki blog, etc.?

    Thank you in advance for you advice.

  • If I’ve understood you correctly, the easiest way is to use category lists for the different ‘blogs’. Something like this site, which uses category lists for ‘Residencies’, ‘Consultancy’ and ‘Blog’.

    So in your case, you’d set up a category for each different type of food, for example, I guess.



    So, categorize each post and then, instead of making the tabs link to pages, have them link to the given categories?


    Thanks, HTH (or PAE?)!

    You will need setup custom post type for each so you will have a label like you have posts for sushi, teppanyaki, and kushiage and each can have blog page same way I have article on my website show how to set custom post type I have page.php in your case you can use index.php file and make the same changes to create template.

    Not sure why that’s necessary, govpatel…but thanks!

    I followed peredur’s advice and it worked exactly as I wanted. Thnnks!


    Good stuff!

    HTH = Hope that helps.
