Multiple Category Dropdowns
Hey folks, I’m starting up another WordPress install for a creative project and am having a difficult time with categorizing. The trouble is that the contents could be categorized in any one of three ways between product type, genre, and price; neither is mutually exclusive to another. Nothing is for sale, it’s all informational so people can browse to whatever they are interested in. I have been looking at plugins such as the Ajax-Category Dropdown, but run into the initial dilema that it requires “category==>subcategory1==>subcategory2.” Other plugins such as jsearch may be able to get the job done, but they are out of the way, more complex than I want or need, and replace the normal search functionality.
The idea is that the visitor can select a category (or a combination of any of the three categories) that fit their interests and the page populates with posts that fit their selections (if any).
I was thinking that having three dropdowns (one for each “type” of category) and a “filter/search” button in the sidebar would be the best way to do this, but I can’t find any plugins that will do the trick the way that I envision it. Does anyone know of a plugin that could help with this? If not, would anyone be willing to help me explore ways to write this?
Wow…Long message is long. Thanks for checking this out, everyone.
