Special Category Structure Issues (4 posts)

    So, I'm trying to modify my WordPress installation for a non-blog type website. I'm trying to setup a specific category structure but having some problems.

    The structure:
    url.com/tv-show/season-1/episode-1-This-is-an-episode

    My problem occurs when trying to do a similar structure for another tv show, ie:
    url.com/another-show/season-1/episode-1-This-is-the-other-shows-episode

    Basically the slug for the sub-category of the new show(as category) is coming out as 'season-1-another-show' instead of just 'season-1' like it does for the first tv show. I'm confused on why WP is rewriting this for me as they both have different parent categories and I can only assume this was something that was overlooked when making the function for making sure there are no dupe cats.

    Any ideas besides manually modifying the backend?

    DevBum,

    It is my understanding that WordPRess does not all allow duplicate post permalinks so this should not work. You might however try an alternative and name them something such as: "dx-episode-1" Dexter Episode 1.

    doc4,

    The only real thing that is duplicate is the subcategories which each have different parents. I would think this situation would be allowed since there obviously would be no indirection because of the dupe.
