This is my first real delve into custom post types and taxonomies, i suppose it will all come to me in a flash of inspiration but right now i have confused myself beyond all realms of possibility and need some advice as whether im going on the right track.
heres what i have:
Three custom post types, namely:
all the above share 2 taxonomies (location and region) and then they have their own specific taxonomies too.
Now im looking at template files for each of the Custom Post Types and also template files for the taxonomies.
So of course i headed over to WP Codex and checked out custom post type templates, now if i understand correctly to template each of my custom post types i should use *archive-*name_of_post_type.php and *single-*name_of_post_type.php for when in single post view.
Ok so up to here i reckon im ok, now this is where im confused, off to Codex Again this time to find out how to add a template to each of the taxonomies, codex tells me this *taxonomy-*name_of_taxonomy.php, now a couple of questions if i may:
1) am i going about this the correct way
2) is the taxonomy template a single view (ie like single.php) or a looped view, im guessing its looped like categories.
3) can i create just one template and include all taxonomies (via an if statement to shake through seperate loop files?)
