Categories / Permalinks structure

  • From what I read in the Codex about Permalinks, nested categories show up only in the main URI of the blog, is there some plugin that makes category structure show in hierarchy? What i mean is if i make the subcategory “swing” in the category “jazz”, and post “armstrong” in “swing” > this gives me the url http://www.blog.com/jazz/swing/armstrong but if i go to http://www.blog.com/jazz/swing/ i get “Not Found” the “swing” category is nested in main blog URI ie http://www.blog.com/swing/ which is kind of illogical. So is there some plugin that sets this structure right?

    I found the Custom Permalinks plug-in but for some reason it does not work and also seems abandoned..

  • i really hope someone can help with this.

    I’ve circumvented this in the past on a 2 level category structure (ie jazz/swing) by creating a page with slug jazz. If you make that page use a custom template (ie. page-jazz.php which calls in all posts in the jazz category) you’d have the problem solved.

    /jazz/ would show the custom page, /jazz/swing/ would show your category page. Problem is – I have no idea how to make that work with 2+ levels of categories, because your page slug doesn’t allow subdirectories. In other words, you can set /jazz/ as a slug, but not /jazz/swing/. So your /jazz/swing/armstrong/ example wouldn’t work, at least as far as I can see.

    If you end up fixing this one way or another, please post it. I’m interested in more permanent solution as well.

    i was also fiddling with pages, will try your idea, although you’re right it’s more of a workaround than a solution..
