[resolved] Set up 'pseudo' directories (2 posts)

    I apologize if this has been answered, but I wasn't able to formulate my question to get a search hit.

    I have a WP install residing in a root, i.e. http://mydomain.com. There is a small set of pages related to my Iphone app. I am working on the Android version and am trying to anticipate how I will need to structure the website to promote the Android version when it launches.

    Even though WP is in the root, I would like the links to be mydomain.com/apps/iphone/screenshots vs mydomain.com/screenshots as they are now, so that in the future I can have /mydomain.com/apps/android/screenshots without needing to maintain 2 separate installations of WP.

    In addition, I am using the WPML plug-in to localize the site, and that does its own magic by prepending a country specific sub-directory to the URL query's tail.

    I am quite experienced with WP, but haven't had a scenario like this before.

    It looks like this plug-in is exactly what I need, but I am having issues using it to model what I want.

    Do I first create a taxonomy called 'apps/iphone-ipad' or 'apps' and a child 'iphone-ipad' and then add a custom post type?

    Thanks for any help!

    Thank you!

    Not quite sure how I'd go about this. I know that our plugin simply does the registering for the post types/taxonomies. However, what you do with them after that is up to the user.

    That said, I think to accomplish what you'd need, it'd be a case of either hierarchical post types, so that you could get parent/child relationships going, or fiddling with the Rewrite API. It also could potentially be done via your mention of taxonomies as well. I can't say for certain one way or another without actually trying to solve it.
