[Plugin: WooCommerce - excelling eCommerce] Consistent URL Structure (2 posts)

    Hello!

    I'm attempting to implement a consistent, but somewhat sub-optimal (SEO wise) permalink structure for a Woocommerce store.

    The category page works fine:
    http://www.tipgrab.com/shop/fountains/

    But the product page 404s:
    http://www.tipgrab.com/shop/fountains/neopolitan-garden-fountain/

    I've read on other threads that removing the "shop" part of the URL in the links above isn't really possible. However, based on what I've read the structure above should work, but it isn't.

    In settings > pages, I had to set the product category and product tag slugs both to "shop" in order to get the urls to work. Is this what is causing the problem?

    Is there any way to have a consistent, sensible URL structure with WordPress/woocommerce?

    Hey, I'm having the exact same issue as you, I think the issue is related to having the same category and product base as the shop page name.

    For instance:

    Shop page: domain.com/shop/
    Category Page: domain.com/shop/category/
    Product Page: domain.com/shop/category/product/

    If you change any of the bases then the links work fine, this is really annoying and I haven't had a response yet about this issue.
