I'm trying to wrap my head around the most efficient way to set up entries in EE for my site structure. This is my first EE build, coming from a Wordpress background and I'm looking for opinions on how a more experienced EE dev would approach setting up my site's structure.
The site can be defined as an e-catalog, no e-commerce functionality is present but the site is largely based off the product views. I am using the Structure add-on, and have purchased Playa, Matrix and Stash as well.
Pages needed: 1. Product Category pages - displays links to Product Grid pages 2. Product Grid pages - displays product tiles. Tiles are groupings of products. The tiles must be created by the client in the CP because there are no patterns amongst the tile groupings.
*There is no singular product entry view. The Product Grids are the the most drilled down view of products.
Initially, I set up channels for Product Categories, Product Grids and Products. I related Product Grids to their respective Product Categories with Playa.
I imported a category of products as individual entries in the Products channel. This is where I'm stuck. I'm not sure if my channel structure is the most efficient and I don't know how to most efficiently create the tiles. I feel like there has to be a better way.
Any thoughts on approach would be greatly appreciated!
