I have a custom post type called "Industry" and want to allow for a given Industry post to have different sets of post content depending on "Region". The post type would have a series of fields defined to record statistics, and these statistics would vary by region. So, for example, there would be a post for "Manufacturing" with basic statistics recorded in fields for each region. Thus, I can create a custom taxonomy for "Region" with terms for "Region A" and "Region B". My question is how best can I configure the custom post type to have different post content for each region? There are three routes I can think of:
I just create separate Industry posts for each region and assign each post the appropriate taxonomy term (Region A or Region B.) The downside of this approach is that each Industry will have redundant posts (i.e. two for each industry) and wouldn't have a relationship to one another unless via a separate taxonomy or relationship field.
I set up Industry as a hierarchical post type, have a parent-level post for the general Industry info, and child posts corresponding to each region. From an organizational standpoint, this might be the best route, but there's still redundancy with the parent post.
I set up an ACF repeater field for the Industry post type to create separate rows of data corresponding to each region, thus allowing for a single Industry post to contain data for both regions. This is probably the least desirable route as the instances of Industry data for each region would not exist as actual (queryable) posts.
Thus, I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for a different approach to create different sets of post content for a given post type- any ideas are most appreciated!
