Kozlak: That url structure is what im after.
Bahr: I think the confusion lies with him saying /category/sub-category/
Shulse: I think he wants site.com/taxonomy ~~ list all terms in that tax. then click a link in that page to bring you to site.com/taxonomy/term ~~ shows all posts in the term
Arrendell: Which is what WP does
Bahr: Because /category/ is already reserved
Wiggens: Bahr: has the right idea, my bad for confusing terms.
Hickman: Bahr: i think the confusion lies in you bringing permalinks into it
Lowndes: KLVTZ: aside from the URL, however, you HAVE to get your semantics right
Bahr: No, he uses “categories” and “subcategories” — both are terms, jsut one is a parent, one is a child
Nahrwold: KLVTZ: you need to clarify whether you actually mean “sub category” or you mean “taxonomy”
Bahr: He doesn’t realize that domain.com/category/foo/ lists all psots in “foo” category
Bahr: He was trying to say /parent-category/sub-category i think
Maccartney: Bahr: well that is what I’m trying to clarify. because I dont necessarily know that he understands the difference
Peacock: And have asked him that three times with no actual response from him.
Bahr: Yeah we both just took different routes. i ***umed one thing haha
Cumins: KLVTZ: so STOP forcing us to ***ume what you mean and answer the question
Largin: Bu***and: My apologies for causing confusion. It’s my fault for getting wordpress terms mixed up.
Bahr: KLVTZ: Let’s say we have a category “MMA” and child terms/subcategories “Jujitsu” and “Karate” — are you wanting domain.com/mma/ to list all the “sub categories”: Jujitsu and Karate?
Garrett: KLVTZ: stop apologizing and just answer the question
Bahr: And have /mma/jujitsu/ and /mma/karate/ show posts for those “sub categories”
Botten: Bahr: Yes Bahr thank you for clarifying.
Friest: Bahr: you should clarify that ‘category’ is the taxonomy group
Bahr: I will, just trying to figure out what he wants first then educate lol
Hurtgen: Bu***and: As opposed to what?
Tyl: Bahr: would there be any way to obtain the above structure, as you mentioned it.
Wethje: Ow1n: as opposed to mma being the taxonomy group
Bahr: KLVTZ: did you try to change your permalinks like i mentioned just to see?
Bahr: I want you tos ee what that does
Bahr: It prob won’t do exactly as you wish, but so you can see maybe
Berenbaum: Ow1n: because typically people make taxonomies for groups of like terms
Gordner: Bahr: could you post that permalink, i saw it earlier but can’t seem to p**** where it’s at.
Bahr: Yeah i think i only ***umed correctly this time because i just dealt with someone having a similar request, and he was more out of the WP loop
Bahr: KLVTZ: have you tried using /%category%/%postname%/ as your permalink structure?
Bahr: KLVTZ: the problem with something like that i think i found in the past is that it creates duplicate content on the site
Bahr: If i remember correctly, they wanted /blog/category/sub-category/post/ or something
Bahr: Blog being fixed, category being a term, sub-category being a child term of term
Lutman: Bahr: did the above help them or what plan of action did they take?
Bahr: All that crap makes my head hurt and i just walk away haha but i’d be curious for you to see if the permalink adjusstment helps
Nishitani: Making ‘category’ a term seems counterintuitive
Bahr: No one is making category a term
Bahr: I used his terms to help him out heh
Cochenour: I can apply it later today. Unfortunately i wanted to hop on this chat and get a general idea if such a thing was possible before continuing down a road that would prove impossible.
