I have been reading dozens of posts and honestly, I have many doubts on how this work. Furthermore, I think that with WP3.1 more issues have been added here because I am having even more problems now than before.
The point is that I am using the same slug for different kind of taxonomies and posts. Let's use loans as the slug for my problem.
Until now, I had the page /loans/ and also the category /loans/ and subs /loans/fixed-rate/ and /loans/variable-rate/. In /loans/ I displayed the page where I had a custom template showing different things and in /loans/subcategories/ I had archives for the posts in that given category. Furthermore, my posts had the strucutre /%postname%/.
Now, in WP3.1, in /loans/, I see the archive of all the posts in /loans/ and its children and I have been forced to create a category template "copying" what I had in the page before.
I want now, taking advantage of WP3.1 features, to create a custom post called also /loans/ so I can define a new template for these posts. I also want to create a new taxonomy called /loans/ (instead of the category) being non-hierarchical so I can have dozens of subcategories /loans/loans-bank-X/, loans/loans-X-rate/, /loans/loans-X-years/ :
- /loans/ -> Page with a custom template
- /loans/fixed-rate/, /loans/bank-of-america/, /loans/30-years/ -> Taxonomy
- /loans/30-years-fixed-rate-loan-of-bank-of-america-review/ -> Custom Post with a review of the product
¿Is there a way of doing this correctly?
I had read before thag pages had priority over categories but not now in 3.1. I believe it would also be nice if someone write down the current priority of these slugs.
This can be solved using different slugs for the taxonomies, etc but from a SEO and UX point of view it is much better to do it with the same slug.
Thanks a lot and regards.
