Multiple dynamic pages? Introduction (10 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I'm fairly new to WordPress and was looking for some assistance and rather than search the net for solutions that may not be relevant to my issue I thought I would get in contact on here.

    My issue is as follows:

    I currently work at a recruitment agency, we use our WordPress website to post jobs using the blogging function / dynamic page. However, we now want to introduce a blog to our website as well that we will use to publish articles and statistics.

    What we want to do is have these two sections separate from each other. I'm not sure there is a way to set this up but if there is anyone that could be of assistance that would be brilliant.

    I'm not sure if I can post the link to the company website but I can provide those details if they're required.

    Many thanks,

    Mitch

    what two sections are you referring to?

    What I mean by this is we need to be able to easily differentiate between job posts that will detail the roles the consultants work on and blogging articles about various subject matter.

    So is there a way to separate these two types of posts onto seperate pages or easily so that when someone is looking for roles they can click the current roles tab and if someone wants to read an article they can click the blog tab?

    Assuming you are posting all of this different content in the one WordPress site, have you considered just using different categories for the different types of content?

    Yes I have thought about this however our postings currently go under a tab called opportunities. Forgive me for being dim, I am a little fried right now but is there a way to have two tabs on a menu that that will filter to these categories excluding the other?

    So we will have a careers tab that will filter down to only the job posts and a Blog tab that will filter down to just the updates and news articles?

    If you use a custom menu, yes. You can have menu items that point to each individual category.

    So currently we have categories that cover around 8 different areas from role types to the verticals within our company. I can then add a new category called "articles" for instance and link that to a menu tab and then have the rest of the categories linked to another menu tab?

    Whilst playing around with this it still showed the blog articles on the job posting page :S

    Basically I need it so that when they click current jobs, it'll take the viewer to all of the job categories and when they click blog they are taken to just the blog entries. Can this be done with tags also? As I was thinking of making two categories, Jobs and Blog and then using Tags to identify the posts specifically into vertical and role type. This way I could separate the two sections properly?

    Yes

    then have the rest of the categories linked to another menu tab

    Not to a single menu item - no. They would each have their own menu item unless you moved them all under a single category called 2jobs" or similar.

    Can this be done with tags also?

    Not if you want menu items, no.

    This way I could separate the two sections properly?

    Yes - that would work.

    Thank you very much for the help Esmi. I'm not sure it will give me to 100% desired effect that I am looking for but it will work much better than how things are done currently.

    Thanks again.
