Need understanding CPT-onomies: Using Custom Post Types as Taxonomies

  • # August 22, 2012 at 11:19 am

    Hi too all,

    A friend just recommended this WordPress plug-in CPT-onomiesto me, but after messing with it forhours I’m not understanding how to create the relationships that I want. He said it’s an excellent way of working with large amounts of WP pages or posts that need to be view by categories, tags, etc.

    Here are the relationships that I would like to create:

    Portfolio (would create this main directory:
    — Print (category of portfolio
    — — brochure sample (/print/brochure-sample)
    — — direct mail sample (/print/direct-mail-sample)
    — — catalog sample
    — Web (category of portfolio
    — — vacation rental website
    — — sporting good product website
    — — photography website
    — Illustration (category of portfolio
    — — shoe illustration
    — — clothing illustration
    — — architectural rendering

    I’m confused as to where to start. I’ve been looking for more information on this subject to better understand how it works, but I’m coming up dry. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    You don’t really need that plugin. Check out

    I’ve used a post type as a taxonomy using relationships on Advanced Custom Fields before, however it now supports all sorts of custom fields on taxonomies, so no need to fake a taxonomy to add functionality :p

    Cool. Thanks! This plugin has much better documentation which is what I really needed.

    I’ll start digging through this today.
