I couldn't find a section about this so thought internal linking might be the right place.

Is it a problem if I have a hierarchy where the very top category has the same excerpts that are in all of the sub categories?


Top Category - Excerpts of every post from all of ther sub categories beneath.

Sub Categoires - Only Excerpts from within that sub category or anything above it's subs category.

It's immdeiately flagging me that there is going to be category that has my whole site content while also being categoires that contain the same excerpts.

I hope I haven't been too confusing here is a url strucutre to explain it a bit better as well.

/maincategory (all post exerpts_

/maincategory/subcategory (all sub category post exerpts)

/maincategory/subsubcategory (all exerpts from category above and current category.)

I'm not sure if this will be an issue but if it is I also hope someone knows of a solution to eradicate such bad strucutre.

Unfortunately it's how wordpress categoires wotk that seems to be causing what I think is bad strcuture.

IMO, I don't see anything wrong with that structure.

The top level category contains what's found in all the sub-categories. Each sub-category only contains the items relevant to that sub-category. It's basic hierarchical structure and makes it fairly easy for site visitors to either get an overview of the entire site contents or drill down to a specific category that interests them.

What specifically about it makes you think there would be a problem?
