    Issues with departments ( URL ) and making sub category in portfolio, by remimolinero

    Hi there,
    I would like to apologize in advance for my english, it’s not my native language. Thanks

    I would like to get some help or at least an explanation about the “departments” in wordpress.
    I can’t get the point of those things and i would like to do what i wanna do without them.

    it’s pretty simple :

    I’m photographer, i got this wordpress site and there is a “work” section, with 4 galleries: Landscapes / Portraits / Decay / Exhibition
    Some of these are “on her own” like the Decay one for instance. When you click on it, you got directly a page with the pics.

    But for some of the others i would like to create “sub galleries” I mean for example, when you click on landscapes i would like to get to a new page with some galleries named for instance : Europe / Asia / Africa / etc….

    The only way i’ve succesfully done this is using the “departments” thing
    But there is some issues

    First, when i add a departments to one of my primary galleries, it does move them. I mean the order on the display changes. it’s just about how it looks but it is important for me. Exemple : If the order is like this : Portrait / Landscape / exhibitions
    And then i add landscape to a departments in order to make some “sub galleries”
    The order changes and become Landscape / Portrait / Exhibitions
    I don’t want that.

    And the bigger and real problem is the second one :
    The url of my work page on the website is like this : http://www.site.com/work/
    there you get a page with the 4 galleries. And if you click for instance on portraits you got : http://www.site.com/work/portraits

    But if i put landscape on departments i got this shitty url : http://www.site.com/work/departments/landscapes with my page with my sub galleries
    If i click on one of these i get http://www.site.com/work/landscapes/peru for instance
    And that’s totaly fine because the freakin departments thing is not appearing
    But why it does appear before ? and how can i remove this ? i don’t wanna see this “departments” in URL

    If it’s not possible i would love to know how can i make sub galleries without using those departments things.

    I precise that I have zero knowledge about HTML or any other code so… but i would love to learn if it’s not possible to fix my problem using the settings in wordpress.

    Thanks so much for the helps, and sorry again for my english.
