I have a particular issue with setting the permalink structure for "posts" on my website. Right now, I have the default "posts" page living under


I'd like the links for each post to parent under the URL structure, so they will read like such

www.mywebsite.com/news-events/current-news/article-1 www.mywebsite.com/news-events/current-news/article-2

Right now, they only show as such www.mywebsite.com/article-1 www.mywebsite.com/article-2

Any ideas how I can repath the posts to reflect my URL structure? I only want to change it for the default posts, as I have CPTs that do not need to have the base URL rewritten to add "/news-events/current-news/", which is why I can't use the "Custom Structure" setting under "Permalinks"

Thanks, Devin

If I remember right you can simply go to Settings > Permalinks and change Custom Structure to /news-events/current-news/%postname%/.

    But that will change the URL rewrite structure for the CPT I have added to the site as well. I'm just looking to change the default posts. Dec 16, 2013 at 14:23
  • Hmmmm... I am not sure how CPT plays with it, since they have bunch of rewrite-related setting in registration.

Try re-registering default post type and add a rewrite slug with _builtin param set to false.

I think it should work for you.
