Url mapping – modified loop to sort custom post types by taxonomy
I’m trying to do exactly what wordpress already does with posts and categories. I’m very close to having this working but I’m running in to a wall here. It seems to me that this should be a standard feature and this is critical to full functionality of custom post types.
I have created a custom post type called ‘requests’ that has a custom taxonomy ‘request-categories’. I’ve created a template with a modified loop that allows me to view my custom post type in a certain ‘request-category’ for instance ‘electronics-requests’.
The loop works if I manually change the args for post type and taxonomy but, in order for it to be usable, I need to figure out how to deal with the urls so that
mysite.com/requests/request-category/electronics-requestwill modify the loop in such a way that will provide the expected results.
The way I see it,
mysite.com/requestswill be an actual page, while the
electronics-requestportions of the url would be assigned to the appropriate variables in the loop. Which seems easy enough but I don’t know how to keep wordpress from 404ing.
Does anyone with more knowledge about how WP handles urls have any suggestions?
