  • 123brh


    I want a product to appear in 2 categories:
    1) Mens T-shirts
    2) Beats & Swing

    The problem is with the permalinks. I want the permalink to be:

    However, with the current settings I get this:

    It seems to sorting by category name, alphabetically. If I change my actual category name from “Beats & Swing” to “Z Beats & Swing”, then the permalink becomes “Mens-T-Shirts” instead.

    But I don’t want to append category names with Zs to get things organised!

    How do I change the sort order in the permalinks? Any help from a more experienced member would be much appreciated…. 🙂

    I am using /%product_cat% as the permalink base in the permalink settings.

    (WordPress 3.5.1, wootique theme and woocommerce plugin)

    Thanks in advance

    Alternatively I could say…

    How can I change the sort order for categories in permalinks?



    I’m having the same problem!

    Have you managed to solve this? I believe so that it is something to do with alphabetical order.



    Hi Paul

    I haven’t managed to solve it exactly, but I have discovered something useful…

    If you put a product in two categories then BOTH permalinks will work. E.g.

    Both the above links to the product will work, even though only one displays on the edit product page.

    That is a bit of a workaround I guess, but I hope that helps!

    🙂 Ben
