  • scottelkin


    If I create a custom post type “movies” with custom taxonomies “director” and “actor”, this is what I get out of the box with the default Permalink structure:

    (when I add a movie post type)

    If i click on the Director taxonomy from the movie page:


    When I click on the “actor” taxonomy from the movie page:


    If I change Permalinks to “/%category%/%postname%/ I get:


    and then just


    For director and actor respectively.

    All of these just 404.

    What am I doing wrong here? How can I fix the actor and director permalinks to show:


    AND have them all not 404?

    sorry with my use of singular vs. plural. my taxonomies are “directors” and “actors”, both plural.




    I’m having the same problem, posted about it. Not much help yet. Did you have any luck ever?

    Just use “Custom Structure” under Permalinks.

    The custom structure should be ” /%postname% “. (No quotes of course.)

    In the case of a custom post type of “movies” the permalink will be
    ” /movie/avatar “. You should see this permalink when you edit your “avatar” post.

    @ronbme, that does work for custom post types, but for regular posts (like blog entries) i would still like to keep the date format /Y/m/d/title structure

    anybody else having that issue or trying to do custom rewrites for the custom post types?

    ok, i found the solution. you have to flush out the taxonomy. instructions here
