comment Should I use Wordpress to skin a database website?
I think this might have a chance on WP.Stackexchange where they are a bit more liberal on open-ended questions AFAIK. I'll ask a mod to migrate it.

You mean, from the URL? Or from within the page?

Are you inside the loop with this? Where exactly are you calling the function, can you show some code?

comment WordPress Pages into Sections edit.php PHP hack
@ptimson I see. I imagine for that to happen, you'll have to dig deep into the code, no idea how feasible that is. One idea that comes to mind is misusing the custom post types concept - with those, you can get separate menu items in the back-end. But I don't know post types well enough to tell what other problems you'd probably encounter on your way.

Mmm, isn't this covered by WP's standard functionality already? You can assign a parent to any page. You may have to activate the field in the options at the top of the screen

What do you mean by "pages template" exactly? A page type? Pre-filled HTML?

comment Combine Multiple Categories Into One URL Slug
@Chris yup, you'd have to link it to two categories. The two categories don't have anything to do with each other. I don't think it'll require you to change your permalink structure though? Except if you have a /categoryname/postname scheme running, I don't know how that would react to a post having two categories.

comment Combine Multiple Categories Into One URL Slug
@Chris no, the new suggestion (in the comments above, not in the answer) is: /category/fruit and /category/bananas and for the post.. hadn't thought about that part yet; in the navigation, show /category/fruit but hide /category/bananas because your end goal is to have less categories in the nav. (Correct?) Hiding categories from the nav is possible using an array IIRC when calling show_categories, so there might not even be a need for a plugin

@Chris true, but what I suggest in the comment above is different from what I suggest in the answer (which I agree is useless to you in light of what you said, just keeping it around so we can finish this discussion)

comment Combine Multiple Categories Into One URL Slug
@Chris as said, it would probably be easier to have fruit as a separate (but real) category in your category tree, alongside bananas, apples, and pears, but hiding those in the menu. So an apple entry is both in the /apple and the /fruit category, but only the /fruit category is visible in the menu. (But /apple still works for SEO). Is that a workable option? I'm not aware of a plugin that does exactly what you want (although there may be one)
