What I want to do is have a news category with two sub categories (property-registration and property-revitalization). Going to /news works fine. However going to /news/property-registration or /news/property-revitalization redirects to same-named pages instead (/programs/property-registration and /programs/property-revitalization instead). I have downloaded a couple of plugins that let me save templates to categories but none of them worked and still got the same results. My permalink structure is /%category%/%postname%/ for reference and no category base is set.

  • What is the question? As you have found out your permalink structures can not handle pages and posts with the same slug so either use a different one or use different slugs. Aug 22, 2014 at 21:27

I figured out the problem. By adding /. at the end of the category base fixed the problem. So it is news/. instead of news.
