comment Working with WP Engine Live and Staging sites
I agree with everything you say, but where would you suggest I ask this question? The underlying data for CPT's by default is stored in the wp_posts table, like most other WP data. Additionally, I can activate a plugin on the staging site but unless I push the DB back to live, the activation is lost and so are any configurations. This is a data management question about how to manage data specifically in the WP environment between staging and live environments. Many premium WP hosts are pushing this feature without explaining the numerous pitfalls.

Thanks Ben, I'll look into RAMP. It isn't cheap, but if it works correctly, well worth it. I forgot about that ACF feature to export to PHP. That should be useful as well. I know Ben and as far as I know, he has no affiliation with RAMP.

comment Working with WP Engine Live and Staging sites
I asked WPEngine and their answer was not pushing the entire DB. I'm not talking code, I'm talking about all the underlying data associated with adding new functionality. Say I add a new plugin for a CPT, Taxonomy and used ACF's for testimonials. To test the new code on Staging, I have to enter a bunch of data to test the archive, single and taxonomy pages as well as pagination and such. How do you take that new functionality live that doesn't involve either reentering data or trying to merge the DB somehow. This isn't a code management question but a data management question.

comment Advice on Categorization for a Custom Post Type
Concerning flow, the main page lists the brands. Clicking a brand takes them to all models regardless of location. I think my struggle is making this somewhat automatic. Sure I can manually build links for each location/model if I use tags, but I would like it to be one and done. If the client adds another brand, the main page is automatically updated.

comment Advice on Categorization for a Custom Post Type
Thanks for the quick response. Yes, the "Model" will be the CPT, but I'm curious about brands/locations being either hierarchical (categories) or non-hierarchical (tags).

comment Wordpress Page Hierarchy
Sorry, this is all fixed. I still had a template assigned to the page in question (press), so it was taking priority. The page you're now seeing is correct in that it is pulling in content from a custom post type (Recent Stories) after the standard page content from the loop. Thanks for the follow-up
