Here is a scenario for manufacturers, products and their categories that I am trying to setup in WordPress.
1- There are manufacturers, which have various products
2- All manufacturers have some special categories they are associated with
3- All products have some special categories (other than manufacturers) that they are associated with.
I am confused should I make manufacturer a taxonomy for products and if yes, can a taxonomy have multiple other custom fields?
I will be needing to provide an interface where they specialized categories can be added by the admin
An interface where manufacturers can be added by admin
An interface where products will be loaded through a CSV and manufacturer/category info autoloaded.
I am not sure if its a vague question or not but any thoughts/help with the above will be appreciated.
