More beautiful and seo links for custom post types

  1. Zoker


    Hi there,

    Im working with wordpress now more than 5 years and its the best cms I met.
    So many plugins, so many themes, so much customization.

    But there is one thing thats very bad:
    The link structure of custom post types.

    It started to create a portfolio page and wanted to create items.
    The structure was:
    - Item: site.com/portfolio/android-app
    - Category: site.com/portfolio_category/apps

    Since then I tried to get a structure like the normal posts:
    - Item: site.com/portfolio/apps/android-app
    - Category: site.com/portfolio/apps

    That is all I wanted.

    I tried many plugins like custom-post-type-permalinks, but they never worked or caused a 404 error.

    I dont understand why wordpress creates such non beautiful and non seo urls.

    The only thing I want to do, is editing the custom post type urls like the post edit urls, to make them look like I want. (e.g /%category%/%post%)

    Would be nice to see such feature in the future and also to get some feedback :)

    Thank you

    Hmm ok, thats a possibility.

    But shouldnt that be as easy as setting blog post permalinks, so also non programmers can change it?

    That's a different story. Since you can only add in CPTs being a dev right now (via a plugin or writing your own code) it's not really something to worry about. Either the CPT you use does it or it doesn;t.
