Im having an issue in my category set-up logic
Let's say I sell new/used (including Vintage) Drums/Drum Parts wherein a user can search by new, used or by individual part. So let's say they choose to search by individual part on Cymbals. The search results page should then display a listing of Cymbals which should also be grouped by new/used? Right?
So, in setting up my categories, I'm coming up with this...
- Drum Sets
- Drum Sets
Duplication. Arrgh! Can I not achieve my objective WITHOUT all this duplication?
I been advised that (notwithstanding MP) I can achieve the same with out the duplication in two ways:
1. create a custom taxonomy for condition (new,used)
2. use a custom field for condition (new,used)
Either way I would only need to create each category once and filter by condition.
But I just discovered that MP does not display custom fields. ... arrgh!
I've read the post showing how to modify the functions.php and add the nec. functionality for custom fields, but not sure it applies here.
If I have to go that route, so be it. But I'm just curious how anyone/everyone is handling scenarios like "New" and "Used" products in the SAME category using MP.
Can I do it "natively" or do I need to jump to code.
