Im trying to create a topics "section" similar to what Justin Tadlock has on his site but i'm not sure how he is doing this. Categories? Tags? or what?
I tried changing the Category base to topics as the instructions state:
If you like, you may enter custom structures for your category and tag URLs here. For example, using topics as your category base would make your category links like http://local.dev/topics/uncategorized/.
Now assuming my category is "foo", when I visit
http://local.dev/topics/foo/ I see the proper listing of articles categorized as "foo".
But when I back out to
http://local.dev/topics/ i get ...nothing. Whereas I assumed I would get a list of all categories.
Again looking at Justin Tadlock's site, it appears each item in his "Topics Archive" is actually a tag?
How is this done?
Is he using a Custom taxonomy or what? How do I approach this?
