I appreciate your feedback but I rather work with the built-in category
taxonomy for the theme support.
Are there any impossibiles to what I was asking? cause I'm not seeking an
*easier* route at this time.
I repeat the 2 questions I have for convenience purposes;
Can I use the built-in category taxonomy as follows
______Worth a look
______Not to miss
and then I have the following url options
Can I achieve these URLs by simply changing category base to "BrowseBy"
for the first two URL examples
and then some time later totally removing the base for the last two URL
Are there any technical issues with such changes?
Yes. I'm aware of the SEO implications of such changes but we are not at
Once we launch, we will obviously stick to the launch state.
And on a second note...
When I change the "category" base or remove it all together, what happens
to the register_taxonomy function. does get_taxonomies('','names') still
return "category" or does it return "browseBy"?
But Eric, In the future, surely I will keep your advise though. I'm in
prototyping phase now.
