Subject: site planning and navigation strategy
Im currently developing a small project of my own called tour.pt (Portugal), I’m still stuck on site planning and navigation so I need someone to shine a light on the matter.
main page: blog featuring latest posts in each category from all cities + a select city option
Should cities be main categories or pages? I assume they will have to be pages..
so, tour.pt/city-1-page > displays featured posts about city-1, the problem is, I would need a custom menu for this specific page:
where-to-stay | eating-out | see&do | about-city-1 | trivia
because each city is unique and "where to stay, eat and do" options change from city-1 to city-2.
Any thought that might help?
P.S. IM USING Genesis
That's an interesting and difficult question. It is possible to have a city be a Category, and Posts in that Category (with restaurants or other things in that city) would be visible.
The problem is that if you have many cities, then you have maybe too many Categories, and if you have too many Posts in a Category, you will only see a few of them at once.
Another way to do it would be to have a page, say, Lisboa, and then have sub-pages as its children for Musica, Restaurante, etc. Then you might end up with a lot of dropdowns in your menu. 🙂 So you could use a mega menu if necessary.
I hope that helps!
