My site is about DIY and 'making' around the house (let's say).
Current version 5.1.1
I use posts for the content on my site which isn't strictly in "blog" (chronological) format in that each page (post) stands by itself. Each page (post) is part of 2 types of catgeories, say Category 1 and Category 2.
- Category 1: Area of the house it's for, e.g. Bedroom, Living Room, Kitchen, Office
- Category 2: Type of project/post, e.g. Renovating, Customizing, Product Review, Things I would Like To Buy, Tutorial
Each post should (i.e. will always) have one category from List 1 and one category from List 2.
An example of an individual post would be:
How to use the advanced functionality of the A123 food processor to make brownies
The categories would be:
Category 1: Kitchen, Category 2: Tutorial
ACME Corp just released this lawn-mowing gadget and I can't wait to get my hands on it
Category 1: Garden, Category 2: Things I want to buy
What I would like to do
- On each individual post, in the author/date/categories part I'd like to be able to list out the Category 1 and Category 2 like this:
Area of the house: Kitchen
Type of project: Tutorial
Area of the house: Garden
Type of project: Things I want to buy
- In a widget in the sidebar, I'd like to be able to list the Category 1 and Category 2 in separate sections, e.g.
AREAS OF THE HOUSE
TYPES OF PROJECT
things I want to buy
It is my own personal website with full admin control so I'm not restricted as to what plugins I can install or files I can edit etc.
I'm using the Twenty Sixteen theme and so far only have a Google Fonts plugin.
If possible I would like it to automatically add new Category1/Category2 items if I create them, but if that's too difficult I am open to adding them manually (there is a finite list and won't be that many, less than 10 of each).
