    Hi,

    I have a food product review blog with 300 reviews ready to post and counting.

    I need help figuring out how to setup a structure in organizing my post before I begin posting.

    My goal: To help visitors easily navigate and find a review.
    – By Region>Japan>Post
    – By Brand>Brand Names>Post
    – Top 10> Best, Favorite, Weirdest>Page w/ the posts
    – Index feature page (tags): spicy, no msg, sweet, vegan,> page > Post
    (Just like Page https://cnz.to/recipes-by-ingredient/)

    Using: GeneratePress Theme + GP Premium + Elementor

    I don’t know coding, and will learn as I go.
    Hopefully my description make sense.

    Thank you,
    David

    Hi there,

    I’m not exactly sure what you are trying to do but sounds like the default tags and categories WordPress’ functions might do the job?
    https://themeisle.com/blog/categories-and-tags-in-wordpress/

    WordPress automatically generates archive pages for categories and tags which you can add them to the navigation.

    Let me know if this helps 🙂

    Hi Leo,

    A recipe blog is the closest to what my food product review blog will look like. Organizing recipes by cuisine, quickest to cook, and ingredients using tags.

    After reading the article and hearing your thoughts, I’m glad what I roughly described can be achieved using WordPress functions.

    Next question is or should I open another topic?

    – Creating two column post feed in mobile only, do you recommend
    “Lightweight Grid Columns” or “Gutenberg Editor”

    Thanks,

    Creating two column post feed in mobile only

    For showing posts in static pages?

    If so WP Show Posts is what you are looking for.

    Let me know 🙂

    Thanks Leo!

    The plugin is easy to use and just what I was looking for.

    Next Q:

    I have a page displaying tags that links to post.

    How can I display a post count next to the the tag?

    Like post view counts?

    If so you will need a plugin for that as well.

    Number of post counts for the tag.

    I have a page displaying all tags.

    I want people to see how many post are in each tag.

    So if there’s 5 posts with the tag “chocolate”

    It should show:
    Chocolate (5)

    Hi there,

    How are you displaying the page with all of your tags? Using a plugin?

    Hi Tom,

    I’m displaying it with an easy non-coding way.

    Elementor page builder > Icon list element > name of tag with a link to the tag

    I remember coming across your post with adding something to the php file like show_post_count?

    Ah, I’m not sure how you would do that. Are you able to put a shortcode into the link?

    #959835
    David

    Like copy and paste a shortcode in the link box, next to the link?

    That’ll be the only non-coding place I see to input a shortcode.

    This is the model site having that function https://cnz.to/recipes-by-ingredient/
    But I realized it’s just regular text that they manually change the numbers each time?

    It could be, or it could be dynamic if you’re able to insert PHP (a shortcode) into that area. It might be worth asking Elementor support if they have any ideas.

    Good idea, I’ll go ahead and reach out to them. Thanks!

    Question about images linking to Attachment file vs media file vs none vs custom.

    Should I continue on this or create new support request?

    I been having images linked to Attachment File for 90% of my blog images.

    Just found out google has problem crawling through it.

    Should I just set it to none?

    Thanks,
    David
