Post Type, Cateogry, Taxonomies, and Fields– Which to Use for What Information?
I am working on a site with articles and information. I also set up a separate post type that includes listings for restaurants and stores (about 40 in total that won’t change frequently).
I think what I need to do is add “restaurants” and “stores” as post types (using Custom Post Types UI) since they have slightly different formats.
I created these post types and have added some custom taxonomies (neighborhood, price) but these don’t appear on the public site.
I also originally thought that some of the information like addresses, hours, etc. would work best as custom fields. After working with custom fields, I found that it’s not exactly appropriate for this situation, but I find myself going back to it. WP just isn’t the best system for business directories but I decided to use it anyway because the blogging and commenting component is the most important part of this site.
So: Do you think things like listings of restaurants and stores are best presented as categories or custom post types?
How can I display custom taxonomies?
Do you think addresses and hours are best presented as custom fields? Have you seen any examples around of custom fields being used this way?
Thanks in advance!
