Support » Fixing WordPress » Special Category Structure Issues

  • So, I’m trying to modify my WordPress installation for a non-blog type website. I’m trying to setup a specific category structure but having some problems.

    The structure:
    url.com/tv-show/season-1/episode-1-This-is-an-episode

    My problem occurs when trying to do a similar structure for another tv show, ie:
    url.com/another-show/season-1/episode-1-This-is-the-other-shows-episode

    Basically the slug for the sub-category of the new show(as category) is coming out as ‘season-1-another-show’ instead of just ‘season-1’ like it does for the first tv show. I’m confused on why WP is rewriting this for me as they both have different parent categories and I can only assume this was something that was overlooked when making the function for making sure there are no dupe cats.

    Any ideas besides manually modifying the backend?

  • DevBum,

    It is my understanding that WordPRess does not all allow duplicate post permalinks so this should not work. You might however try an alternative and name them something such as: “dx-episode-1” Dexter Episode 1.

    doc4,

    The only real thing that is duplicate is the subcategories which each have different parents. I would think this situation would be allowed since there obviously would be no indirection because of the dupe.

    Anyone else have any input?
