I understand I can associate CPTs in submenus like so: Is It Possible To Add Custom Post Type Menu As Another Custom Post Type Sub Menu
However, my question is if I have one CPT, let's say for a ECommerce type of post type, so it would be Orders as the post type and I have orders with different meta information in their post_meta such as approved, pending, denied, etc. can I have submenus which load an admin table using
WP_List_Table of a subset of the custom post type, that is based on their meta data.
So the admin menu looks like
-Orders CPT (Show All Orders in List) --Approved Orders (Show only Approved Orders in List) --Denied Orders (Show only Denied Orders in List) etc.
The reason I am asking is because at first I was doing
add_submenu() with a custom callback to generate the HTML, but then I realized this was unnecessary as I was ending up recreating the default
WP_List_Table, but I don't want multiple CPTs when they are all really subsets of the same CPT differentiated by meta-data... is this possible or should I do different CPTs somehow?
