  • I would make status another taxonomy. You can sort by meta fields, but you need to query them all (from what I know).

    You could also try finding a copy of Quality Control (http://wefunction.com/2010/08/quality-control-theme/) and see what he did.

    I believe you can query_posts by meta_key but that isn’t the issue as much as if I wanted to do something like….

    $department_link = get_term_link($department, 'department');
    <a href='$department_link'>$department_name</a>

    [php opening and closing excluded for readability]

    While this is straightforward with a taxonomy I am not sure that it can be done or not with a meta key. I guess my question really comes down to if WordPress allows for a template based on meta keys like it does taxonomies.

    Thank you in advance.

    Gave up on this…I think I was wrong about the query posts by meta key and I ended up going with the taxonomy method. Thanks Devin. Case closed.
