Looking for advice, recommendations or suggestions for the most appropriate page structure for a website.
I am migrating a website which has about 1000 pages in the structure of /service/location/ – There are 4 services and about 250 locations
I leaning away from creating them as pages as it will just clog up the Pages section of the site making it cumbersome to find and edit core pages.
I was thinking of using categories and posts but this customer wants to do some blogging so I’m leaning away from clogging up the posts section as well.
I was thinking of a custom post type BUT the custom post type will add a slug at the beginning (e.g. /custom-slug/service/location/ ) which will mean that I will need to 301 redirect the 1000 URLs on the new site from /service/location/ to /custom-slug/service/location/).
I am leaning towards creating 4 custom post types (the 4 services) and then creating the 250 custom posts per customer post type – but I don’t like the thought of having 4 extra menus/sections in admin (I could probably get over it – but I’m thinking that there’s got to be a cleaner way) OR Just dealing with Categories and posts and ignoring over the “clogging up” issue…
Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions? Is there a more appropriate way to do this?
