I am now just procrastinating on the next batch of ridings, but at least it is in service to a higher goal, structure!
In preparation for the new theme I updated all of the posts for the EDA’s, Clubs, and MP’s to conform to a proper HTML5 format and h-entry classes.
The site can be broken down by post types, and taxonomies.
The post types contain the data for individual things (Person, Organization, Place) and have relationships with with each other, while the taxonomies are used to group subsets or cross-sets of the different post formats.
The Post Format
The post format will be used to display the basic requirements of the thing and satisfy the h-entry requirements. The post format will be used to display the thing on the major categories for the things, ie taxonomy archives.
|Post Type||Post Type Custom Category Taxonomy||Post Type Custom Tag Taxonomy||Schema||h-format|
|CPC Members||Caucus||EC, Tags||schema.org/Person||h-card|
|EDA||Provincial Desk||EC, Tags||schema.org/Organization||h-card p-org|
The List Format
Nobody wants to click through page archives so for the individual post archives, ie /eda/ or /cpc-member/ I’lll have to create a properly formatted list to display the entries.
Once the basic list view is created it can act as a template for creating other lists based on the data, the twitter lists are good examples.
The Directory Format
The directories are used to provide an at a glance overview in a sortable table of data.
Examples of Directories
- MP Social Media Table
- EDA’s Online
The Individual Entry Pages
Once the final theme is established the individual pages for post type will act as a complete h-card for the entry and act as a complete schema for the thing.
The individual pages will use the microfromats to create the structure of the individual pages.
