Query Multiple Taxonomies
URL rewriting with custom taxonomy filtering (1 post)

    Hi there,

    Not sure if this is even possible, but I'm hoping someone can help me with this... I have the following setup:

    - I have 3 custom post types (A, B, C)
    - Post types A & B are being used as taxonomies for post type C with this plugin: CPT-onomies
    - On a page I'm using the query-multiple-taxonomies widget to filter the post types C by taxonomies A & B (which are actually post types) by the checkboxes template
    - I made a seperate archive template for post type C
    - As a base url I'm using the slug of post type C
    - The reset url directs back to the page with the widget

    So far so good, everything works great! However, my query url's look a bit wonky...
    For example, I'm checking 1 taxonomy A value and 1 taxonomy B value, this is the url that's generated:
    http://mydomain.com/post-type-c-slug/?qmt[post-type-a-slug][]=95&qmt[post-type-b-slug][]=117
    95 and 117 are the values of the post type A & post type B id's checked as a taxonomy. I would like to rewrite the url like this:
    http://mydomain.com/post-type-c-slug/?post-type-a-slug=taxonomy-a-value&post-type-b-slug=taxonomy-b-value

    I tried changing the mustache {{name}} value into {{term-name}} in the checkbox-item.html template but then the filtering doesn't work anymore.

    Unfortunately I'm not really an expert on url rewriting in wordpress, so I'm stuck on this. I also have no clue how to use the my_qmt_url function, so any help would be welcome.

    Another question is how I can display the selected taxonomy values on the filter results in the archive page?

    Thanks!
