Description: Organize your WordPress Blog with categories. There’s a number of special considerations when using WordPress Categories that revolve around assigning multiple categories to individual posts.
There’s also a limit to the number of categories that you add and how deeply they are nested. The easiest way to make the best use of the WordPress category function is to spend time BEFORE you add content mapping out the flow you want your visitors to take as they consume your information.
Structure your content first, then assign the content to a corresponding category. Here are some things to think about while you’re organizing your posts:
- Do I want flat categories or nested categories?
- Am I linking menus to categories that are nested or flat?
- Do I want my listings of individual posts from nested categories to be displayed in the root category blog?
