Permalinks (8 posts)

    Hi,

    I have been building a website for a client and the permalinks are set at the post name.

    All of the employees have a mini blog running in their page. Their page address is example.com/youth-teams/area

    They have asked whether their mini blogs can be located at example.com/area

    Is there any easy way to do this other than take everything out of the parent which I really do not want to do :(

    Is 'youth-teams' a custom post type? Please explain what 'youth-teams' is and I should be able to give you a redirect code to achieve what you want.

    Thanks VegasKev88,

    /youth-teams/ is a page itself, each 'area' is then a child page of 'youth-teams'.

    Thanks again! :)

    Hi,

    I have set up this plugin for now (http://wordpress.org/plugins/safe-redirect-manager/) and seems to be working.

    Anyone got any better solutions?

    So it seems as though you've created a page titled 'Youth Teams' and then created child pages for each 'area'. I'm curious as to why you would do that extra work at all if, in the end, you want the url to be domain.com/[area]/. It would seem that instead of redirecting everything, you would be better suited making those 'area' pages all parent pages to begin with. If I'm missing something, please let me know, as from what you've mentioned, you seem to not need to create child-pages at all.

    If I didn't have the parent page the areas would end up disorganised and everywhere..the structure of the site is already pretty busy.

    Wanted to keep it as organised as possible.

    Have you looked into custom post types by chance? I'm getting the feeling that creating a 'Youth Teams' custom post type with 'Area' taxonomies might be better suited for you, but then again, I haven't seen your site, so I can't be sure. What is the link to your site and the pages in question? I'm more than happy to take a look at it and point you in the right direction, it's better to change directions now than later if necessary.

    Hello!

    Not sure custom post types is what I wanted to do.
    Also got 'Advanced Access Manager' running on the install to try and organise what certain employees can see...that was hard enough to set up!!

    Thanks anyway.
