I am trying to create a new education site that has two types of resources, courses and informal learning. I am trying to do this without using custom post types or taxonomies. The site with use the same topic categories for both the courses and informal learning, but each post will be identified as a course or information learning.
I'm trying to create a list of links to specific topic categories with the number of post in each, but only for courses. I want to use the category name identified by ID#. and I want to exclude informal learning from the linked results.
I could not identify an open source plugin to do this and I'm not really a coder. Any suggestions would help a lot.
