I have created a custom post type, but I do not want it to have a permalink. By default, after entering post title, it creates a perma link. I do not them to be generated.

From my reading, it is said that custom post type, will have a permalink and there is no way of disabling it. Is there a way that I can prevent the ajax call that receives the perma link.

Do you want to hide the permalink under the post title on Edit Post page? Do I understand right? –  Max Yudin Mar 15 '13 at 15:02
    
yes, I can hide it with css, but I want to disable it so I dont have to use css. If i could disable the ajax call it would be best –  meWantToLearn Mar 15 '13 at 15:12

<?php
    add_filter('get_sample_permalink_html', 'my_hide_permalinks');
    function my_hide_permalinks($in){
        global $post;
        if($post->post_type == 'my_post_type')
            $out = preg_replace('~<div id="edit-slug-box".*</div>~Ui', '', $in);
        return $out;
    }

This will remove:

  • Permalink itself
  • View Post button
  • Get Shortlink button

If you want to remove permalink only, replace the line containing preg_replace with

$out = preg_replace('~<span id="sample-permalink".*</span>~Ui', '', $in);
