From those who are more experienced with WP, I could use some advice on how to best set up a local history site to do the following:
There will be a list of articles on different historical topics. Each will be tagged with the people who appear in the article, the organizations discussed, and maybe other metadata like events or places.
Each person should have his/her own page that shows all the articles the person is mentioned is, all the organizations the person is a member of, and maybe also all the events they attended or places they lived/frequented.
Each organization should list all the people who were its members, and maybe also all the events it threw and places it met.
And so on... I think you get the point... basically I have 3-5 sets of content that need to be tagged to each other in flexible ways.
I'm not sure how best to accomplish this.
- Out of the box tags and categories don't link to each other (plus it's painful to create custom tag and category pages), though they seem like they ought to be the more natural fit.
- Then I thought I could create a custom post format for each of the non-article content types (people, orgs, events, places) and then using the plugin Advanced Custom Fields 4.3.8 I could shoe-horn all the tags in there, but that seems pretty hideous, and it's not clear it would even work since it seems to want everything to be 1:1.
I know this isn't the best fit for StackOverflow, but I feel like this use-case isn't so unique that there isn't a clear architectural recommendation or even an existing plugin.
Thanks so much!
