Permalinks for Hierarchical Custom Post Types


This plugin allows you to create custom permalinks with hierarchical post types.

For example, you have two custom post types (book & author). You specify a structure with a slug of “library”
that looks like


  1. Upload hcpt to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


How to set parents?

By default, WordPress doesn’t allow you to give a custom post type the parent of a different type. How you
set this is up to you, but I would recommend a drop down meta box.
