I'm really struggling to organise a site that will hold quite a lot of content. This example is reduced, but contains the crux of my problem.
The site features several clubs.
- Games club
- Juggling club
- Dance club
Each club needs to publish news and events.
I have created a custom taxonomy called club and custom post types for news and events. My thinking being that when someone creates an event, they attribute it to their club using the taxonomy.
Ideally I wanted a url structure such as www.mysite.com/juggling-club/ (which would use a taxonomy template to display some content). Then www.mysite.com/juggling-club/events (which would list all the events that a club was holding).
It seems WordPress needs the taxonomy in the URL (www.mysite.com/club/juggling-club) which I could maybe live with, but I'm really struggling with how to display the different custom post types neatly based on taxonomy, and how I can organise my templates.
www.mysite.com/club/juggling-club/?post_type=events does filter my content, but checking the code it seems to just call the events post type archive template, and makes it hard to target the taxonomy as well.
Am I missing a much simpler option here?
Do I need to do a lot of re-write rules? If I do, how will I get WordPress to find my templates to customise the look of specific sections?
Thanks in advance for any insight!! Kind regards.
