    News category structure

    Hi Umbraco developers

    Im creating a news section to my site but cant figure out the right way to structure it.

    enter image description here

    This is the structure I have made so far.

    The requirements:

    1. the news should be visible in more than one category.
    2. the news should be easy to find agian.

    Number 1. is made with a multinodetreepicker so the user can choose the categories where the news should appear.

    Number 2. is why I didn't go with all the news in the same location.

    Now this give me a problem when I want the news on frontend, because the breadcrum and currentpage will always take the posistion where the node is located.

    So as in the image above if I make a "news 1" in "Category 1" and I choose "Category 2" on the news then "news 1" will show in "Category 2" on frontend but the url and breadcrum will now be wrong when I press the news beacuse the real location is always in Category 1.

    So the real url will be:

    but I want this url when I choose the node

    Hope it all make sense

    so my question is how I achieve this.

    Does the url need to have the category name in?

    If not, i would either:

    create the news articles directly under the archive folder then use a Dropdown Multiple property on the news article to assign categories to the article.


    if you need to have category pages you would include the MNTP on the category page but url of the actual news article would not contain a category name
