I'm wanting to create/modify either the existing post type, or create a new post type to be searchable, sortable and filterable by the following fields:

  • Country from:
  • Country to:
  • Activity:

Ideally I would like them to be:

  • Searchable, e.g. I could search for posts from Country X to Country Y with activity Z

  • Listable, to be accessible via dropdown menus

What would be the best method of implementing this? A custom taxonomy?

Through hierarchical categories? Using custom post data?



I think the following is the best approach:

Custom post type that uses a custom taxonomy for each data point.

Custom taxonomies for Countries and Activities, then a relational link between country from and country to as custom fields to the taxonomy :)
