This is a repost of an earlier question I had, but I like to go into more details now to be able to fully solve this.
So again, with (normal) posts changing the permalink is as easy as going to Settings > Permalink and by changing it to anything you like such as the broadly used
%category%/%postname%.html. This all works. If only this was as easy for the custom post type and it's taxonomies as well.
So this is what I like to accomplish.
- http://mywordpress.com/portfolio.html - Display all posts in all categories.
- http://mywordpress.com/portfolio/music/ - Display all posts in this category.
- http://mywordpress.com/portfolio/music/trance/ - Display all posts in this (child) category.
- http://mywordpress.com/portfolio/music/trance/Tiesto.html - Display the post.
What I got so far is the following:
- First I created a
custom_post_typenamed project and a
- I created a page Portfolio and gave it a Page Template that will list all of the
post_type = projectposts. How can I add .html to the permalink of pages? It now links to http://mywordpress.com/portfolio while I want http://mywordpress.com/portfolio.html. This should solve the first issue.
- Then things will get tough, because we don't know by forehand how many subcategories there, maybe there are even none. So the structure we are after is
portfolio/(CATEGORY PATH FROM TOP TO CHILD)/post.html. I am still stuck at this point. I think I should somehow get the last category added to the path and pass that along the project_category, which should lead to a taxonomy.php file where I can process it properly.
- I haven't tackled this neither but it should have something to do with
%postname%.htmlat the end of something.
I hope my problem is clear and that there are brave developers which will help me tackle this problem which has already keep me busy for four FULL days!
