Custom Post type URLs (2 posts)

    First attempt at Custom Post Types and Taxonomies. Seems to be having a URL issue.

    My CPT is "Properties" and my Taxonomy is "Property Types". All seems to be fine on Admin dashboard and I added two proerty types;

    1. Land for Sale
    2. Farms for Sale

    I can see these ok on front end but the URLs are not what I was hoping.

    The actual property listing can be viewed here: http://noeloconnor.com/property/castleroberts-adare-limerick/

    I would like it to appear as http://noeloconnor.com/property/farms-for-sale/castleroberts-adare-limerick/

    What I was hoping would be its parent page can be seen here: http://noeloconnor.com/property_types/farms-for-sale/

    I would like the parent page to appear as http://noeloconnor.com/property/farms-for-sale/ if possible

    It just seems to be that from an SEO point of view it is not correct. I was hoping to have the URL structure similar to how the regular domainname/categoryname/postname structure

    Below is the Custom Post Type code I entered in my functions.php code for my child theme;

    // Custom Post Type for Property
    add_action( 'init', 'register_cpt_property' );
    function register_cpt_property() {
        $labels = array(
            'name' => _x( 'Properties', 'property' ),
            'singular_name' => _x( 'Property', 'property' ),
            'add_new' => _x( 'Add New', 'property' ),
            'all_items' => _x( 'Properties', 'property' ),
            'add_new_item' => _x( 'Add New Property', 'property' ),
            'edit_item' => _x( 'Edit Property', 'property' ),
            'new_item' => _x( 'New Property', 'property' ),
            'view_item' => _x( 'View Property', 'property' ),
            'search_items' => _x( 'Search Properties', 'property' ),
            'not_found' => _x( 'No properties found', 'property' ),
            'not_found_in_trash' => _x( 'No properties found in Trash', 'property' ),
            'parent_item_colon' => _x( 'Parent Property:', 'property' ),
            'menu_name' => _x( 'Properties', 'property' ),
        $args = array(
            'labels' => $labels,
            'hierarchical' => false,
            'public' => true,
            'show_ui' => true,
            'show_in_menu' => true
        register_post_type( 'property', $args );

    Below is the Taxonomy code I entered in my functions.php code for my child theme;

    // Taxonomy for Property Types
    add_action( 'init', 'register_taxonomy_property_types' );
    function register_taxonomy_property_types() {
        $labels = array(
            'name' => _x( 'Property Types', 'property_types' ),
            'singular_name' => _x( 'Property Type', 'property_types' ),
            'search_items' => _x( 'Search Property Types', 'property_types' ),
            'popular_items' => _x( 'Popular Property Types', 'property_types' ),
            'all_items' => _x( 'All Property Types', 'property_types' ),
            'parent_item' => _x( 'Parent Property Type', 'property_types' ),
            'parent_item_colon' => _x( 'Parent Property Type:', 'property_types' ),
            'edit_item' => _x( 'Edit Property Type', 'property_types' ),
            'update_item' => _x( 'Update Property Type', 'property_types' ),
            'add_new_item' => _x( 'Add New Property Type', 'property_types' ),
            'new_item_name' => _x( 'New Property Type', 'property_types' ),
            'separate_items_with_commas' => _x( 'Separate property types with commas', 'property_types' ),
            'add_or_remove_items' => _x( 'Add or remove property types', 'property_types' ),
            'choose_from_most_used' => _x( 'Choose from the most used property types', 'property_types' ),
            'menu_name' => _x( 'Property Types', 'property_types' ),
        $args = array(
            'labels' => $labels,
            'public' => true,
            'show_in_nav_menus' => true,
            'show_ui' => true,
            'show_tagcloud' => false,
            'show_admin_column' => false,
            'hierarchical' => true,
            'rewrite' => true,
            'query_var' => true
        register_taxonomy( 'property_types', array('property'), $args );

    Any help would be so much appreciated.

    To make the above post a little easier to understand as I realise it is pretty big,

    What I have:
    Custom Post Type: http://noeloconnor.com/property/castleroberts-adare-limerick/

    Taxonomy: http://noeloconnor.com/property_types/farms-for-sale/

    URL Structure I would like to achieve if possible: http://noeloconnor.com/property/farms-for-sale/castleroberts-adare-limerick/
