Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » WooCommerce Custom Product Permalinks Break Post Permalinks

  • When I input “/%product_cat%/” as my custom permalinks base for WooCommerce products, my post permalinks “/%postname%/” is broken.

    I have tried resetting my .htaccess file, but essentially my server will not allow me to have both these custom permalinks settings.

    Interestingly, when I set WooCommerce custom permalinks to “/product/%product_cat%/”, this does not break my post permalinks.

    Could someone explain why this custom product permalink base is breaking my posts?

    Thank you.

    This seems to be a bug. I logged the issue here:



    This has been plaguing me forever!

    The statement on the bug page that this simply shouldn’t be allowed is ridiculous.

    To be able to have something as simple as “/%product_brand%” for the Product Permalink and “/%postname%/” for the Post permalinks should be a no brainer and absolutely work.

    Just about every other cart offers this ability.

    So is it official that nothing will be done about this?
