  • Resolved lumena


    Hi all,

    I’m tyring to add a folder to the url of my website. e.g:

    I have updated the custom permalink structure with /%category%/%postname%/

    I have added the ‘cooking’ category to a page, but nothing is happening. Viewing the recipes page simply displays http://www.mywebsite/recipes.

    I’ve tried many fixes including:

    Checking the .htaccess file for the following code:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    I have set permissions of .htaccess to 666 and 777 with no effect

    I have ensured that mod_rewrite is enabled

    But it still won’t display the category in the URL. Can anyone help??

  • Hello!

    I don’t think you meant “folder” there…

    By default, pages don’t have categories, posts do. So, if “recipes” is a post, then simply selecting the “cooking” category should give you this URL:

    If “recipes” is a page, then you have to create a page called “cooking”, and then select the “cooking” page as the Parent of “recipes”. Then you’ll have

    To do that, go into the “recipes” page, and at the right, at Page Attributes, under the Parent section, press the drop-down menu and select the “cooking” page. Then Save, Update, or Publish.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Oh I see. Yes, categories are completely new to me.

    Thanks Blade!
