I've setup a traveling/photography blog. I want to have different post types: Traveling, Hotel Reviews, etc. For the traveling post, I want to add unique data like: City, Weather (for the current time for that day), Geotag meta data (long. and lat.). etc.
I am new to custom taxonomies, custom post types and custom fields. For example, I don't know when I should use custom taxonomies and when to use custom fields.
There are many plugins out there that I thought buying, here are two of them: http://codecanyon.net/item/easy-custom-content-types-for-wordpress/234182 http://www.dev4press.com/plugins/gd-taxonomies-tools/features/
What I want to achieve:
1) Add a city for a custom post type (choose from a list of cities using a drop down list of the cities that I've added to a list) and also attach an image of the city to the bottom of my post.
2) Choose a weather and use an icon to show the user the current weather for that day of shooting 3) Have a URL like: http://mydomain.com/city-name http://mydomain.com/city-name/post-name.html
As city-name would be the taxonomy - but what if I have several taxonomies, how can I build my permalink structure to maintain that structure?
4) Optimization & speed - From what I've read, I need to use a numerical value as the first element in my permalink structure in order to minimize stress on my WordPress DB and also to prevent WordPress from creating verbose rules. Does that imply to taxonomies in the URL too?
There are many questions that I don't have answer for. I am very confused with all the plugins and information out there any really need help from you guys.
Thanks in advance.
