2 Tier research:
I am building a site for a client that specializes in research travel. They offer 2 tiers of research assistance, "Standard" and "Premium". Each of those levels of service have occupancy variations, such as Single or Double. Although these features share names and other attributes, they are specific in price per trip.
Custom Post Type w/o taxonomy
I've made a custom post type for "
Trip" and Trip has child post types called "
Packages". I'm not looking for a magical solution to sort it all out; I don't mind (nor does the user) adding each combination as a line item.
I can create
Packages this way just fine and relate them accordingly. However, out of the box (not using taxonomy), the URLs are something like this:
http://exmple.com/trips/fall-2012/- this displays the details of the trip. I have a custom content template to display its child packages defined above accordingly.
http://exmple.com/packages/- this lists out ALL packages that I've created for all my trips. Packages with the same name (i.e. Single Registration) end up like
The needed combinations
This is not helpful because I am not interested in seeing all 8 different combinations of packages. A combination would be:
What I'd really like to see is:
http://exmple.com/trips/- this would display all top level trips, such as Fall 2012, Spring 2013, Fall 2013
http://exmple.com/trips/fall-2012/- this would display all packages for that trip. All combinations of service level and occupancy. This is really as far as I would need to go. I plan on offering a list of all packages here and allowing the user to choose one.
Just logically speaking, the rest of the URLs would look like this (although I dont plan on needing to navigate this deep)
I really hope I made some sense.
