I'm working on a website in WordPress where I have to show AP News from external Database and not from the WordPress DB.

I have created few shortcodes for this, which are working absolutely fine. I have created a separate page to show news details called "details".

Here is my URL.


Where, News = Category, Details = WP Page and ID = id of the News

In specific requirement I need to have a URL like shown Below.


If we go for above mentioned URL, WordPress will try to find post with name "pistorius-investigators-meet-apple-over-iphone" in our WordPress site, which really does not exist. We fetch it from an external database.

Is there any way I can manipulate my URL to SEO friendly URL ?
