Ran in to a bit of an issue recently. I’ve been learning WordPress as a I go along and am well aware I have have missed out on some key tricks. I have created a website that has a large number of categories, the issue I am having is the conflict of categories with the same name, for example – if it were a shop it would be like this:
WordPress doesnt allow the same name of a category to be used. What is then typically the way of doing this? At the moment I have made the categories uniquely named which isnt ideal. I would want the URL to be mysite.com/base/mens/hats/post-name. Is this where new taxonomies come in? If I wanted a Mens page would I be able to grab all the ‘sub-categories’ from Mens if they are not actually categories but instead a new taxonomy? Or is it in fact nothing to do with taxonomies?!
Ah I see, thank you. Is there no way of having both men/hats and women/hats then? Is this perhaps where tags come in instead? I understand why we cant have multiple of the same permalink as WordPress wouldnt know which to show.
