We have an existing wordpress directory theme. However, it will not allow us to put a listing in more than one main category.
I am wondering if we could us Types to bypass this and create a new category system that will tie in with theme.
Theme has granular settings like creating search fields based on custom fields, etc..
There is already a custom taxonomy for listings created, we would just like to link the new categories created with Types with this taxonomy.

development site: hidden link



Dear derrick,

The custom taxonomy is a built-in feature of wordpress, and Hierarchical taxonomy works just like the wordpress built-in category, it should be able to allow you to put a listing in more than one main category,
