    What is a "location"? Custom meta? Custom taxonomy? Category?

  • Unless I misunderstood, just go to settings > permalink and then set the URL to custom e.g. /%category%/%postname%/ and that will make the url as /category/post-name, set the category as the location May 9, 2014 at 19:09

I guess you are using custom post type with custom category is it?If so, then I suggest using this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-type-permalinks/

Set it up, go to Settings -> permalink settings and there will be an additional settings called "Permalink Settings for Custom Post types". Enter something like :


If you are not using a custom taxonomy, simply put /%category%/%postname%/ in permalinks and it should work.


Try using /%item-location%/%postname%
