At the moment, I'm building a website for a local NGO and I have the following situation: in the sidebar, I should have a widget that displays the title of the latest editorials from the members of the NGO. These editorials are published on external sites. So, my widget will look something like this:
first row: Post title (The title of the editorial with a link to the external site) second row: Author Name (The name of the editorial's author [plain text]) | Website (the name of the website that hosts the editorial [plain text]) My dilemma is how to built this widget.
Here are my thoughts:
a) I should build a custom post type with custom taxonomies. The tag should be the Author Name and the Category the website. And the solution would be to build a widget that reads the latest posts from the custom post type and below displays the tag and category (without links on them [is that possible???])
b) I should build a custom post type and two custom fields. Then I should build the widget that reads the latest posts from the custom post type and below displays the two custom fields.
Which road should I go? Do you have another ideea on how this can be achieved?
Thank you in advance.
