Site Hierarchy State --> Cities --> Post (1 post)

    Many others might have faced this road block, so I thought to post it here and see if we can find a collective solution. I am trying to create a CMS site based on geo specific services locations. Now, here is the site workflow that I would like to achieve:

    Home page (with 50 states link) → State pages (parent category with links to child categories) → City pages (child categories with links to post titles) → Local Service pages (posts)

    A user has to pick the state, and then select city to see all the available services in that city, and then click on a service business link to be able to go to a specific local services page.

    URL structure would be -

    - http://www.domain.com/california/san-francisco/local-service-page1
    - http://www.domain.com/texas/san-antonio/local-service-page4

    Below are list of challenges I am facing currently:

    - How to populate parent category page with all related hyperlinked categories
    - How to populate child category pages with all related hyperlinked post titles
    - What is the best combination of Page / Post format to achieve the above workflow?
    - How to add parent / child category for each post in bulk

    I have tried without much success, so your help and insights will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
