CMS & WordPress
I didn't quite know how to word the subject of this thread.
It can get rather confusing given that WordPress uses it's own version of categories (which is not what I am asking about).
What I am looking to do is create actual directories under my WordPress install (my version of categories) each of which will contain pages (not blog posts) of a particular subject.
For example I might want to create a directory containing tutorials on WordPress. So I under the mythical domain of [www.asdfasdfn.com I would have [URL="http://www.domain.com/wordpress/how-to-install/"]www.asdfasdfn.com/wordpress/how-to-install/](http://www.domain.com) with "wordpress" being an actual directory and "how-to-install" being a page name in that directory.
Now I know that I can do this by creating a page called "wordpress" and then making that page the parent of the "how-to-install" page but is there some way to create and use the "wordpress" directory WITHOUT having to create a dummy page to force WordPress to create the directory?
PS. That's weird. My original mythical domain was w w w.d o m a i n. c o m which redirected to the domain in question. But now so does my new mythical domain. Hmm...
The easiest and more manageable way to accomplish this would be to create a custom post type which allows you to set a custom rewrite rule and more, read the following codex documentation and then the register_post_type documentation if it's what your looking for.
I read both and it's still not clear John (despite my being very familiar with PHP, CSS, and all manner of other such things). I mean it certainly seems easier to create a dummy page as I mentioned in my original post but I'll read both pages again tomorrow and see if I can make heads or tails of it.
Thanks for your input!
Thanks Chris! I don't know why I called you John LOL.
