    I have a photographer client who is interested in me redoing his site with a WordPress theme. I have used a couple different child themes now and the image organizing may not be the best for him. He has numerous bird species and categories that he needs to organize. Before I jump in and choose a template can anyone enlighten me and / or suggest the best template and plugins for this type of site?

    Tracy, you might take the approach of using a custom post type.

    The idea is this: You make the post type of Photos. I would also create two custom taxonomies, one for species, one for bird categories. This way he can sort & group the Photos.

    Does that make sense?

    Thankyou for your reply, yes I think it makes sense… I’ve been playing with the Manhattan theme and 2 plugins to see how that works. One plugin was recommended or suggested through the studiopress help - Shiba Media Library and the other I found called Easy Media Gallery. I guess I’m getting somewhere with them but he has so many categories and subcategories it may get a bit confusing.
