Help Setting up my WordPress Site Structure Please

  • Hi All,

    I’m trying to create the following structure using WordPress, but I’m having a really hard time completing it:

    – site.com/cars :: shows all posts about cars
    – site.com/cars/red :: shows all posts about red cars
    – site.com/boats :: shows all posts about boats
    – site.com/boats/red :: shows all posts about red boats

    My main goals are:

    – Pretty permalinks – I want the above url structure to stay, as it makes sense and is aesthetically pleasing.
    – Be able to have a custom template page for each level, so for example : one template page for cars, and one for cars/red.
    – I can’t reverse it (i.e. red/cars).

    That’s pretty much it.

    I’ve tried doing this with CPT’s and taxonomies, but I can’t get the permalink structure I want – the taxonomies end up being: site.com/taxonomy rather than: site.com/CPT/taxonomy.

    I’ve been going in circles with this all week – so any help would be appreciated!!!

    Thanks.

  • Anyone??

    Use a custom menu (the default is Pages), add your categories and important pages to it. Read about this here on the codex.

    I understand the menu bit – the bit I’m stuck on is the actual core structure for the site, and how I’d recreate this with categories, CPTs, Taxes etc etc!

    Each post gets a category or tag, they are sorted by site visitors using the menu items this way. These also show up in a properly set up SEO for site.

    Also, you can have child categories…this Family Website uses them (see ‘Tree’ category widget at middle footer top)

    site/category/child-category/child-category/child-category

    Blimey, that tree structure you linked to is quite something!

    So on from this – how can i make the child categories have the same slug, with different parents?

    Parent – Cars :: Child – red
    Parent – Trucks :: Child – red

    Meaning – multiple child categories called ‘red’, under different parents?

    This is done best with a flat category structure and a custom menu, look at how the cat items works also – the TITLE can be anything you want, the slug also, so use a method at hand to create uniqueness.

    Also: The use of both tags and categories in a custom menu is powerful.

    if post = cat and tag = tag? example

    I see – think I’ll need to have a play later and see if I can work this out 🙂

    Thanks
