    Hi,
    I'd like to remove the category breakdown in the permalink.

    At the moment, it reads
    http://georgiemckenzie.com/projects/uncategorized/three-little-words/

    but I'd like it to read
    http://georgiemckenzie.com/projects/three-little-words/

    ... An even better solution would be
    http://georgiemckenzie.com/folio/three-little-words/

    Please help!

    Hi,

    You should be able to remove the project category from the permalink structure using this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-type-permalinks/

    This can lead to performance issues and duplicate URLs however, so use with caution.

    on a similar subject, it would be nice to set the slug within admin, without a hack. currently you can name your archive page to whatever (eg, features), however, the slug will always be /project/ which to me seems incongruous with the woocommerce integration.

    @okso are you running the latest version? We tweaked it in a recent version to use your portfolio page title as the slug.

    Hi James, yes, I'm using 1.2.1 *on multisite with domain mapping though, could this be breaking the fix?

    Hey, sorry, just realised you're referring to the single pages.

    We may add project permalink base settings in the future (as we have in WooCommerce) but for now your only option is to use a plugin or customise this yourself.

    + 1 for changing the plugin to allow us to change the permalink base settings for single project pages (& project categories)

    hi James, great to see cats now use page base. Can I +1 for add project permalink base settings on single too. With the base and cats sorted, it seems odd to leave single out?

    Hello,
    I managed to change the /project/ slug into /servizi/ (services) by using the Localization / translation plugin, which I was already using before. Basically it could be anything you want.

    Still, I cannot figure out how to remove the slug for categories with the aforementioned plugin for permalinks. I would love to have a simple
    http://www.mywebsite.it/servizi/project-page or
    http://www.mywebsite.it/project-page (as my regular permalink structure)
    instead of the full
    http://www.mywebsite.it/servizi/project-category/project-page
    Any hints about it, preferably without writing any code?
    Thanks
    Tiziano

    +1 for removing category from url and changing permalink base settings for single project pages - also renaming 'Projects' to something else.

    This seems like a very good plugin, in my limited use of it.

    I will also have to +1 this feature, though.

    In the meantime I disabled the plugin, and I'm using regular pages with categories and sub-categories enabled (and without the /category/ and /category-name/ slugs), thus I can adapt the structure as I want: right now I have all my services under /servizi/, but with a solid categorized structure. I'm looking into customizing the category templates without the need of creating single summary pages, it will take some time but the result will problably be better.
