Custom Permalinks
Custom Permalinks Not Updating WooCommerce Product Category Permalinks (3 posts)

    I saw that there was a post about this issue before, but it was not resolved before being closed.

    The problem I am having is that the Custom Permalinks plugin does not save my changes when trying to set a Custom Permalink for a Product Category in WooCommerce.

    To replicate the issue - Install WooCommerce and Custom Permalinks plugins on a site, go to Products > Categories, create a category, and click to edit that category. Once you are in the editor for the category you will see a field labeled "Custom Permalink". If you enter a value in that field to set the permalink for that specific category and click Update, the value is not saved and the custom permalink you were trying to create does not work.

    The Custom Permalink plugin works great for Posts, Pages, Post Categories, Products, etc. The issue is with WooCommerce Product Categories ONLY.

    Any help on this is greatly appreciated!

    Using WordPress 3.9.1 and WooCommerce 2.1.11.
    I am having a similar issue and could not find any recent solutions. When I try to use custom permalinks for my shop/products, and you click on a product, I get page not found error (it should open a new page with product details). When i set my permalinks to the default settings, the catalog/product pages work perfectly, but my site URLs have the crappy permalink [hxxp://mysite.com/?p=123] which looks horrible and is even worse for SEO.

    Would love a fix on this! Thanks!

    This is because the custom permalinks are not working (yet) on custom taxonomy's. I was trying to use it with custom taxonomy's as well, and it just keeps resetting.
