Duplicate sub category slugs - alternative? (1 post)

    I have this exact issue with creating duplicate category slugs:

    I understand the reasons why WordPress have stopped it - in case you want to move a sub category to another level that already has the same slug and causes a conflict.

    But if you have a website with 5 products, and for each of those 5 products you want a sub section of "articles" and "guides", then what would be the preferred solution for the urls?

    Ideal, but can't be done apparently:

    product-1/guides
    product-1/articles
    product-2/guides
    product-2/articles

    I think it's lame to have to have:

    product-1/product-1-guides
    product-1/product-1-articles
    product-2/product-2-guides
    product-2/product-2-articles

    But good websites need a hierarchy structure, it doesn't make any sense to have:

    /product-1-guides
    /product-1-articles
    /product-2-guides
    /product-2-articles

    Just can't decide what to do?
