I’m building essentially a directory of podcasts and I want to build the system so that each podcast has its own forum (or set of forums) – but linked with a single account that I’ll integrate to the directory with SSO.
I’m thinking that I can make each podcast its own category, and then each category page would show the subcategories it has posts in. However, this means I’ll likely have thousands of categories and I’m worried this is misusing how categories work (and that I might run in to performance issues having thousands). I’d obviously need to limit or even delete the ‘base’ view so that I’m not loading in every single category, but I imagine there may be other considerations I’m missing.
Does anyone have thoughts on this?
I’d additionally want to allow podcast owners to moderate their own podcast’s forums, but I believe this is doable (mods on per-category basis).
