I'm tasked with making a site that has 'families'. Each family has a gallery, a 'region', and a 'name', both of which are searchable upon.
My initial thoughts about this were to create a template for a child page of 'Families' that contains 2 custom fields (name and region), and just use some gallery plugin on each page.
My question: Is there a better mechanic in Wordpress to solve the problem I'm presenting?
I'm a developer, so I see this readily as several tables in a custom CMS that I'd just whip up over the weekend ("6 hours tops, promise!") that would quickly get out of hand, so I'd love to leverage my knowledge of WP to get this done more efficiently.
