Sup my TH homies?
I've been working on this site for a few months now and am finally out of "beta" mode with development, so take a look:
I run a Pokemon TCG strategy blog and wanted to make a resource for my viewers so it would be easy for them to look up pictures (scans) of the cards mentioned within the articles.
On that site, I'm running a preg_replace on the content to link keywords (card names) to the appropriate page on tcgscans.com for easy reference.
This site is a Prototype child, but at some point I will (might) make my own custom theme with the Hybrid Core.
It really pushed my limits making this site and I learned about WordPress and just coding in general working on it. All the entries on the site look like this.
So mainly I've got a custom post type with some custom taxonomies. I've been able to automate almost everything. Like I have release dates for different cards stored in a function, so I don't have to manually enter them.
It also automatically grabs card prices from various sites. It isn't perfect, but I do have postmeta fields where I could override incorrect prices if need be. All this makes it super easy to add new cards to the database.
You can see the prices listed on a single page like this one.
I might eventually ditch the ratings as well as Disqus comments to get it loading faster. I was really concerned with site speed building this whole thing.
Anyway yeah that's mainly it... let me know what you think! It's fairly advanced, at least for my skill set.
