PremiumPress Custom Slugs

    Wonder if someone could help with the custom permalinks:
    All the literature seems to be on the forum, and have read it
    Tried to figure PremiumPress Custom on the permalinks page, and possibly from what I can tell they are inverted,
    with the ‘listing slug’ showing the category and the ‘category slug’ showing the listing.
    PremiumPress Custom Slugs
    Listing Slug Name
    Category Slug Name

    Have also tried a few plugins: (WP Category Permalink – could not find- possible conflict)
    What I want is to have each of my categories to go before the listing.
    I have 10 categories with an average of 12 listings
    I have: my site url\province\city name

    thank you

    hi Brian,

    by default there’s no option for that. you will have to modify the core theme files for that if you want to implement your own custom permalink

    Ok, thanks. Interesting about the core files, will think about that.

    However for now. I think the PremiumPress Custom Slugs has a problem.
    Did you notice it does things in reverse?

    How can I disable the PremiumPress Custom Slugs? Looked thru site and forum, no luck

    Thank you,

    Should I direct this question elsewhere? or is there a video on it?

    Have you been to Settings >> Permalinks? Maybe you can start from there. 🙂 | Premium Plugins and Custom Theme Design

    Yes, thank you for your interest, I have been there. That is where the current problem lies. The PremiumPress Custom Slugs are above the regular WP permalink options and appear to require populating, tried deleting all category slugs but on saving, they just go back.
    This is why I need it disabled.

    Hi Brian,

    It cannot be disabled as listings is under custom post type not default wordpress posts. So it needs to have a post type slug. This require modification to transfer the listings to default posts and treat as the listings. But this is a big project so I suggest you hire someone to do this for you.

    Yes, Ok, Thanks. Do you know anyone good who I could hire to do this ‘big project’?

    Will the folks at PremiumPress possibly tackle this as a future project?

    The slug is required by WordPress when using custom post types. It’s not something we added it’s part of the core WordPress framework. What we did was allow you to customize the slug prefix that’s all.

    Its a relatively easy fix though due to some users not quite understanding the relationship between custom post types and taxonomies, It makes it hard to educate users as to why they cannot have a specific url over another one unless they understand the limitations first.

    I.e your listing category is a taxonomy tied to a specific post type.
